“My heart goes out to the hundreds of families that will be affected by these job reductions,” he said in a news release. “It will also be hard for all Nova Scotians to watch, as more good paying jobs are lost.”
He added the Ivany Report points out, Nova Scotia is at a critical crossroads. “We must get the fundamentals right. We simply cannot stand by while jobs and families leave our province for opportunities elsewhere.”
Baillie also said the announcement is another reminder that the province cannot accept the status quo. “We must act now to create and preserve jobs."
