It is now sold and I do not blame Mr. Jaffarnia. Another business is gone from Pictou County. All the equipment is going to Niagara Falls.
Mr. Abass Jafarnia has tried his best over the past 2 years to keep Maritime in New Glasgow Nova Scotia. After what was done to him on Sunday I cannot blame him for leaving and seeking a better life for himself and his family.
On Saturday August 24th Graham Steele contacted Mr. Jafarnia and requested to meet with him at 17:00hrs on Sunday. This meeting, I heard, turned out to be an intimidation and interrogation in Ross Landry's office. Ross Landry and Graham Steele were in the office with Abass.
Once again the NDP government has failed in its role of economic development. Two NDP ministers have come together and could not muster anything positive or any solution instead they chased Maritime Steel away.
