No treat here going Dutch
The BC Liberals’ job creation program promotion, spending millions in advertising, is working, but not for Canadians.
I am not talking about the 200,000 foreign workers in B.C. or the Chinese miners taking B.C. jobs, but local manufacturing jobs.
With an election around the corner soon the Socred/ Liberals will increase the talk and ads regarding the fast ferries built by the NDP.
It is difficult to argue that this undertaking was a success. The idea was good; the design wrong, the blame rests with the marine architects not the NDP.
At least the five hundred workers plus the spin off, for several years paid taxes and contributed to the economy rather than being unemployed and a burden to society. It would be very interesting if some financial wizard would crunch the numbers, my hunch is that these workers contribution might well come close to the monies spent on the ferries. At the very least, well paying meaningful Jobs were created for British Columbians.
The B.C. Liberals Job creators certainly are doing it differently; they built their ferries in Germany, creating thousands of Jobs for Germans. They are now ordering two new Sea buses for Vancouver, this time built in Holland creating two hundred million dollars in jobs and spin offs. Shame on you Ms. Clark.
The jobs created by this government are for foreign workers, ad agencies, job czars and spin doctors, not for B.C. workers.
