They took the ferry across from Squamish .

No one ever lived in Woodfibre. Just the pulp mill. But it might be the incentive to build a road from Squamish to Pt. Mellon.

Yeah, between Squamish and Britannia. We lived in Squamish in 1984!

That seems like an extremely uneducated title for this thread.

Oh, how the poor Albertans weep.


Ontario adds 25,400 jobs in October

Employment in Ontario increased by 25,400 in October — including gains in construction and wholesale and retail trade.

Ontario’s unemployment rate decreased to 6.4 per cent in October, and has been lower than the national average for 18 months in a row.

The October job numbers bring the total increase in employment since the recessionary low in June 2009 to 641,100. The majority of these new jobs are full time positions, in the private sector and in industries that pay above-average wages.

Oh I'm sorry mentalfart..we lost 23,000 real jobs (full-time) capable of supporting a family. Adding 44,000 shifts at Tim Hortons doesn't count or do anything to help the economy.

Quote:

OTTAWA – The economy gained 44,000 net new jobs in October but the gains were entirely in part-time employment , Statistics Canada said Friday.

The overall increase was driven by 67,000 additional part-time jobs for the month, while the number of full-time jobs fell by 23,000.

Get back to me when there is a net loss.

Until then we're kicking Harper's recessions all over the court.

Why would I bother? You aren't smart enough to understand the difference to the economy and a family when a solid full-time job has to be replaced with 2 sh^tty part-time jobs. You just look at a couple of numbers and think "net gain is good, duh, country better, duh". You are a total moron sometimes...sorry all the time.

Don't you think those "sh8tty part time jobs" are just as necessary to the operation of the country as those high paying full time jobs?

Of course we need part-time jobs but we need many more full-time jobs. How do 23,000 families survive on part-time wages. Even if every full-time worker took 2 of those part-time jobs their income would be lower for working twice as many hours. Part-time is great for students and mom to make some spending cash but they do not support a mortgage and feed a family etc which is the backbone of society.

There's likely 23,000 students who can handle part time jobs due to time restrictions.

Put your glasses on old man. We lost 23,000 full-time jobs. That is 23,000 families now struggling to put food on the table and pay rent/mortgage. I don't care about the students making beer money.

And tuition and books and rent and groceries and clothes and health care. Put your f**king glasses on. Here's a question for you - Does anyone actually owe anyone else a job?

Who says they are all kids? Who says they aren't supporting families or helping out parents?
