Jobs needed in the Hazeltons

There also has been a lot of opposition to the projects that could now employ those workers.

Dear Sir:

Ever since the sawmills closed in Carnbaby and South Hazelton there has been very high unemployment in the Hazelton area, but there also has been a lot of opposition to the projects that could now employ those workers.

Unemployment leads to poverty which in turn results in lots of social problems.

The best thing that can be done for families is to ensure that the bread winner has a good paying job that can properly support a family and allow them to own a home.

These jobs won’t return in the forest industry in the foreseeable future due to the low quality of forests in the Hazelton area.

The closing of the pulp mills in Prince Rupert and in Kitimat dealt a death blow to the forest industry in the Hazelton area so jobs must be found in other industries within the region.

It is time to end all the negativity and start supporting the creation of jobs.

If people were back working it would have a huge positive effect on the morale in the Hazelton communities.

Idle hands are not happy hands so we must try to keep those hands busy.

It is time for the cup to be half full.

Brian Mould,

Terrace, B.C.
