Manufacturing shipments down strongly

I will never understand what motivates the Times & Transcript when it comes to economic stories. New Brunswick’s manufacturing shipments are down by almost 12% from March to April of this year. Manufacturing exports are down and manufacturing jobs are down but you will not read about this anywhere in the Times & Transcript.

Apparently Why did dogs die? and Frog Catchers are more important than informing people about the state of the economy.

Say what you will about Conrad Black. I for one would like to see a little less concentration in the print media – if only to get a slightly different perspective on the world.
