Small Business Owners Hopeful Of Economic Recovery

A new poll shows that 77 per cent of business owners in Atlantic Canada feel there is an economic recovery underway. Christine Cooper is the vice-president of BMO, Bank of Montreal, for New Brunswick and PEI and tells CHSJ News business owners are showing a general feeling of confidence that is leading them to make additional investments.

Cooper says more business owners are investing here than they are in the rest of Canada, and say that's likely because Atlantic Canada didn't have the same sharp economic drop Ontario and Quebec did when the recession hit.
