Among provinces, British Columbia, Ontario and Nova Scotia posted drops in employment. Two provinces hit by the drop in oil prices – Alberta and Newfoundland – saw gains, though many economists expect their jobless rates will climb in the coming months.
Oh that’s okay Wynne will just hire more public sector employees…
From the comments…. ( The data used can be accessed here.)
Employment changes Apr.2014 vs Apr.2015 (data from Cansim table 282-0011)
public service – 1,294,500 vs 1,307,300 now – gain of 12,800
private sector – 4,478,600 vs 4,459,400 now – loss of 19,200
conclusion – definition of basket case in real life
Small wonder Wynne was elected:
The last election saw a total voter turnout of 4,885,493 or 51.3% of eligible voters.
Guess who was motivated to turn out, and guess who has the money to get out the vote.
