Life In Premier Kim Dong Wynne’s Liberal Wonder Land – Ontario Sheds 34,000 Jobs

Canada’s jobless rate hits 7.1 per cent in June

Ontario was particularly soft, shedding 34,000 jobs, mostly among youth, with the jobless rate rising two-tenths of a percentage point to 7.5 per cent, Statistics Canada said.
