Interesting and important issue

I am not sure we have to read about this in the national papers. It is not even a negative piece on the Irvings – just a good overview of them and their business interests. One would think this should be one of the most important stories in New Brunswick right now as the Irvings employ tens of thousands of people in a diverse group of businesses ranging from oil to newspapers.

It’s hard to know for sure, but my guestimate is that they control around 65% of the province’s total exports and employ – this is a wild stab – around 50,000 people in refineries, mills, factories, retail stores, marketing firm, media, etc.

As a result, any major changes to their business structure could have a very significant impact on New Brunswickers.

So, to New Brunswick’s media, I ask you to tell us this story. Not in a jaded or skewed way – just tell us the story.

    It looks like they are turning themselves into the four horsemen of the apocalypse. One entity wasnt enough, now it looks like we are getting three and it could shape up into a mighty scramble for power and position. Who do you think will suffer the most? Us, of course, who else?

    Irving DOESN”T tolerate opposition to their view,because their view is logically well thought out and therefore right.

    Irving meeting with Harper at pond hockey tournament last year in my view was bad news.

    Irving never paints themselves into a corner.

    I see Irving long held options,coming into play.

    Irving is solidly established in Eastern U.S and maybe more,where solid influence with government is attainable and long lasting.

    Irving will be ready to make their move,after next federal election if decision is not already final.

    Signed: The Exodus
    I play with this term,because Irving shows signs of implementation of some very successful cult Ideas,such as used in Scientology.

    Likely why mckenna rushed them in to hall of fame,before next move.
