jdobbin Posted November 6, 2009 Report Share Posted November 6, 2009 http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/091106/national/stimulus_blitz Federal cabinet ministers blitzed the country with economic stimulus announcements Friday in the face of dismal employment numbers that leave the Harper government far short of its job-creation targets.Canada's economy shed 43,000 jobs in October, dropping the total number of employed to 16,794,800. That's at least 331,000 jobs less than the target the federal government set in its January budget for this point in the year. I guess all the patting themselves on the back with the last month shows just how weak private job growth has been. As I pointed out in the last employment update, the growth in jobs seemed to be all public sector. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
