  • There is a culture of defeat here in Nova Scotia. Our needs are in picking up the moral of Nova Scotians and instilling a “Can do” attitude. In fact we “can do” and and we have the resources to help budding entrepreneurs succeed.
    We have the universities, and infrastructure to build a “Nova Scotia Machine” that could stand up to national & international competetion.

  • Attrition is an ineffective way to reduce employees in any organization because:
    1)you can’t control the quality of those leaving
    2)you can’t control the age of those leaving
    thus you may be left with the oldest, least qualified and unmotivated and unnecessary.
    Abolish seniority and dismiss the least effective 5% every year.
    I don’t know if I would be demoralized or ecstatic to serve under a Minister like Paris
    .If I were competent I would be demoralized and would not want it on my resume.
    If I were incompetent I would be ecstatic and would never need a resume.
    So much for attrition
