David Akin’s Saturday column for Sun Media is a must read: No other way to say it the BC government is fudging its job creation record.
BC’s media chose to ignore reality and went with the BC Liberal lie: “BC’s investment in job creation provides stability”. For example the Sun’s story claimed weakly that BC’s employment picture remained “steady”. It hasn’t.
And the future? Today, CMHC released housing start numbers. They are particularly bad for BC with a 14% decline in starts month over month, coming on top of declines in September and October. That says fewer construction jobs coming.
Here’s what the Clark government’s job plan really means: You can’t trust a single thing they say.
And I’d go further: In the lead up to the election it’ll be tough to trust anything you read or hear in the media. Think for yourself.
