Skeena NDP candidate Robin Austin has told us about his party’s platform of focusing money on post secondary education with skills training for future industrial jobs here and elsewhere in the province.
This sounds good to me. But the problem is that if you are against industry in the first place, where are those jobs going to come from?
Those jobs are going to be in Alberta because it has a thriving economy.
So we face having our tax dollars pay for skills training for jobs that will be in Alberta because the NDP does not support industry.
That’s a good deal for Alberta but it would be a bad deal for B.C. under the No Development Party.
We need industry because industry it is the private sector.
And it is the private sector that creates the wealth that drives the economy to pay for our social programs.
After 15 years of economic devastation here there is finally some light at the end of the tunnel and we cannot afford to lose the opportunity.
