Self-reliance and job fair

CBC TV and VOCM both carried a story on the latest Alberta Job Fair held at the Mt. Pearl Glacier today. Alberta employers conducted quick interviews with up to 2500 interested job-seekers. More than 1000 people were expected to be hired today.

At the same time people were lining up to leave the province for employment, government's plan for this legislative session were outlined in the annual Throne Speech.

The theme was "Self-Reliance".

By self-reliance, government means that it should not rely on outside factors to solve it's problems - it must solve them itself.

For the people at the Glacier, self-reliance means not relying on the government of Newfoundland and Labrador to solve their problems - they must solve them themselves.
