As you probably heard there was a significant restructuring of provincial economic development in Nova Scotia last week. This included the sacking of the heads of provincial agencies. Premier Houston indicating this might be coming when Don and I interviewed him on Insights.
Great column, David. I could blather on and on in response but have two comments: First, even with the current staffing challenges, ICT represents a huge opportunity, especially in Halifax and Sydney. Governments everywhere tend to prefer medtech and cleantech when supporting innovation, but the economic potential of IT shouldn't be ignored. Second, whatever body is developing tourism strategy should be well represented with Cape Bretoners. Cape Breton is a tourism gem that Nova Scotia fails to capitalize on.
