If you want good - go elsewhere?

The rest of the local media are finally picking up on the story we first wrote about last month: Enterprise Fredericton and the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce choosing an Ontario company to produce and host a directory of local businesses.

On CBC Radio this morning, the Chamber defended the move saying they'd no choice if they wanted to partner with Enterprise Fredericton. And a spokesperson for the Enterprise Network said that when they were looking for an online business database two years ago, they were unaware of any companies in the area that could do that kind of work.

What a crock. That was the same excuse Fredericton Tourism used when it hired an out-of-province firm to create their web site.

It's no wonder that we have talented, trained IT professionals working as department store greeters and telemarketers.

I'm waiting for someone to suggest that by outsourcing to Ontario and points west we're actually creating jobs for the young New Brunswickers who are leaving the province in droves to find work elsewhere.

If you're doing to indulge in twisted logic, you might as well go all the way.

Cheers,
George
