My parents were born, raised, lived and retired in New Brunswick.
Two of my three siblings are gone and the third is leaving.
Where’s that leave my kids?
That’s why I have increasingly little patience for ‘5 in 5’, prosperity plans, Tanker Malley and all the other garbage that is swirling around the metaphorical downtown.
I want someone, anyone, to realize we are in the midst of a dramatic economic shift in New Brunswick and no amount of government spending (even with more Equalization) will fix it.
We need to get our private sector economy back on track (if it ever was on track). When we look at the job numbers we have to start seeing growth in high paying non-public service jobs.
14 straight years of net out-migration.
My family tree looks a lot like many New Brunswickers.
Time for a change.
