Cooker Boy sent this clip along. It’s a CBC documentary (17 minutes) on the economy of New Brunswick from 1965. It talks about a lot of the pressing issues of today. Also an interesting interview with KC Irving.
Of particular interest is the deliberate action by the government and Irving to grow the Northern NB economy.
There’s even a quote that it is more lucrative to be on UI (today’s EI) than to work.
If we don’t know the past, it will be harder to shape the future.
