To the editor,
Over my lifetime I have heard of a lots of promises made by politicians. But I cannot remember of any of them being kept. And the reason I say that is after reading our local papers where Darrell Dexter made the promise that prosperity is ahead and coming to Pictou and the rest of the province because of the shipbuilding and Muskrat Falls. And he went on to say the economies would thrive.
At this time I am not sure where he is getting his information, or is he taking happy pills? For he did not talk about Maritime Steel still having a hard time. Nor did he say anything about Nova Forge closing and putting men out of work or about DSTN of Trenton where he spent taxpayers' money.
I guess it is time to ask Mr. Dexter the question just where is this great prosperity coming from and how soon can we start to enjoy this economic upturn here in Pictou County and the rest of the province? At that time the men and women can start returning home from out west and other parts of Canada.
