Luster gone from BC Golden Decade in less than a month!
BC Liberal party strategists are burning the midnight oil trying to paper over the latest unemployment numbers out of Statistics Canada. Despite all the hype about a "golden decade" and "best place on earth...", BC's unemployment rate moved up significantly last month. Another 13,000 people were added to the unemployment totals for BC, taking the provincial total to almost 160,000. Our provincial unemployment rate now stands at 7.0 percent, up from 6.5 percent for the previous month. - Count Me In
