Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

There isn't enough well paying jobs to encourage people in general, not just the young, to stay.

I left NS in 95 because there was no jobs then, and when I came back in 2005 there weren't anymore to be had. I stayed around and tried my hand at building my own company. By 2010 we had 8 employees but a rough patch, I met with the local RDA, NOA, and ACOA to see what could be done in terms of assistance to help keep going until we tried to figure out how to change course - their advice was to fire my team and outsource their jobs to India. I got up and walked out of the meeting with that.

As far as I can tell the NS government is only interested in helping out the Call Centres that make a big splash and get photos on the front page of the chronicle hearld, the rest be dammed.

The few programs they do have in place, they hide the information so well you need to be a detective to find.
