  • Are you suggesting our provincial government is making, at least in this case, an economically irrational decision? Hard to believe! Is it ever possible for any government’s economic decisions to be consistently rational?

  • I have been saying for years that there would be more benefit to the province if they just gave the millions to the businesses in the southern part of the province rather than the Americans on the US side of the operation. We could probably give each American tourist a $500 gas card if they filled up in Yarmouth, regardless of how they got there by car. The votes that the provincial government are buying with those millions are not really worth the price.

  • i fear you err in attributing any intuitive understanding to our leaders in the fields relating to economics writ large
    they grasp only the self aggrandizement presented in the glories of re-election and the personal benefits flowing there from.
