We talked about job creation and attracting industry. We talked about Moose Jaw's future.
Local city councillor Brian Swanson agrees it has been a challenge but he also pointed out we've been losing provincial government jobs - steadily - over the past several years.
Swanson, on The Heartland at Noon on Friday, talked about an on-going study that has found an alarming trend at Sask Polytechnic. In 2000 we had 314 people working full time at the local campus. Today we have 272.
Now, during that same time period, while we've lost 42 full time jobs, Kelsey Campus up in Saskatoon has added over 200 while Wascana Campus in Regina has an additional 94 jobs.
That doesn't seem fair, now does it?
It's an issue now because we're talking about it. Something tells me it'll be a large issue when the next provincial election campaign gets underway.
