Secure our future

It’s not what you’re opposed to, but what you are in support of.


It’s not what you’re opposed to, but what you are in support of.

As a small Economy, that is dependent on open trade, our future is going to be bleak if we don’t take steps to secure our future.

We are avoiding this debate by being against everything in the way of new economic development. We cannot maintain our standard of living without developing some new infrastructure projects.

This is the lifeblood of our economy. We cannot redistribute wealth if we don’t create it, first.

All new projects must be developed on merit and the public including First Nations must be included in the decision, but we should not give up our quality of life and allow it to decline for future generations. Let’s not talk about what we are against.

That’s easy to do. Let’s get serious about what we want the future to look like and what we want to stand for.

We have to create new economic activities to give our young people hope for the future and to sustain the social programs that we cherish.

If the New Prosperity project is environmentally responsible, then it should be supported, as it will pave the way for the future.
