Tipping the scales

I was driving Ronan to dayschool today and on the way back I heard an interesting spot on the radio. For the first time in Canadian history the west has a higher population than eastern Canada.

What does this migration mean? That there is more opportunity out here. Jobs are better, houses cheaper and young families can make it with higher paying jobs and lower taxes.

Watch our Albertan economy grow as it is a hotspot for jobs, with one of the lowest employment rates in the country.
