Private-sector, goods-producing sector up, public sector down. This is the opposite of what's happening down south in National Socialist Obamademocratistan.
"The contribution from the private sector confirms that the Canadian recovery is well entrenched," said Yanick Desnoyers, assistant chief economist at National Bank Financial. "Furthermore, the goods-producing sector, the hardest hit in the recession, is starting to contribute to job creation. We expect manufacturing and transportation to benefit significantly from the strong inventory rebuilding cycle that is unfolding."
So far so good. Canada IS moving in the right direction, is on the right track.
Of course, it shouldn't be surprising, considering the foregoing...
The Conservative government has weathered several controversies -- such as its decision to prorogue Parliament -- and remains firmly ahead of the opposition in terms of voter support, a new poll by Ipsos Reid suggests.
The Tories have secured a 10-point lead over the Liberal party, says the poll, which was conducted on behalf of Canwest News Service and Global National.
I guess that obsessively, overzealously, unhingedly waging "progressive" jihad against a mere junior cabmin, Helena Guergis, instead of attacking anything of substance that matters to Canadians, isn't working as a strategy for the Liberals. Perhaps they should take another look at Peter Donolo and ask whether he knows what he's doing any more than did Warren Kinsella. Oh, and take a look at "leader" Michael Ignatieff, too. Is he really into it? Perhaps he's getting frustrated and regrets his little brainfart of accepting the appointment to the captaincy of the sinking Liberal ship?
