Report card on economic development

NB receives mediocre report card on state of children and youth
MONCTON, NB-A report card on the state of New Brunswick’s children and youth was released today, and the province didn’t receive a single A. New Brunswick’s Ombudsman, and Child and Youth Advocate, Bernard Richard gave B’s and B pluses in the areas of education, youth and justice, and child and youth wellness, and only C pluses and C minuses in such areas as post secondary education, child welfare, and health. Richard says, during his investigations and reviews of services in the province, it became clear a lot of statistical evidence is either missing, outdated, or overlooked. He calls the province data rich, but information poor. Richard says, he hopes making a report card like this an annual priority will encourage better advocacy and decision making in all areas affecting the welfare of New Brunswick’s young people.
I like how Richard will be putting out an annual report card on the province’s young people. Might be a good idea to have an annual report card on the welfare of New Brunswick’s economy and economic development. They are linked.
