Singh’s jobs rant rankles
I am very disappointed with Coun. Arjun Singh’s latest rant about the possibility of 35 new high-paying jobs coming to Moly Cop Canada in Kamloops, claiming it a significant development for the Kamloops economy.
What a slap in the face to the 125 Domtar employees who are losing their jobs in April as Domtar’s A line is shut down.
Is this not a significant development for the Kamloops economy? Does Singh think this is a fair trade-off — the loss of 125 jobs to gain 35?
I realize that creating 35 high-paying jobs is a good thing, but the loss of 125 high-paying jobs at Domtar is a tragedy.
Remember, in 2008, Singh suggested the pulp mill should close for good.
We will remember his support come election time.
