On The Economy

From August 10, 2008

In July 2008, Canada posted job losses of over 55,000. Most of the jobs were lost in the factory sector and in Ontario. The July job losses continued June's steep decline into negative territory job growth. In fact, July's losses were the largest in 17 years.

Interesting fact: 17 years ago Mulroney's Conservatives were in power.

It really is a wonder that the Conservatives are the go-to party on economic matters. Whenever they gain power, the federal deficit jumps up and the economy nose-dives, and others are left to clean up the mess.
