In response to Tom Fletcher’s words: “But wait, aren’t oil, power and aquaculture companies foreign funded? Certainly some are. The difference is, they create jobs.” (B.C. Views, Jan. 25)
He (like the Harper Conservatives he loves to mimic) is using weasel words – words that are technically correct, but convey a totally false image.
In short, oil, power, and aquaculture are job intensive while under construction (though whether these are local jobs is suspect) but are definitely not job intensive when they are up and running.
Surely you can do better than that, Mr. Fletcher.
