As the provincial liberals call for an economic summit and accuse the Conservatives of not doing enough for job creation, Provincial NDP Leader Dominic Cardy fires back saying they need to get their facts in order--because they shouldn't be talking about having a summit until they've actually engaged in a sustained development plan.
Cardy says a summit is just icing on the cake--what's more important is an actual plan to get things accomplished. He says the New Democrats are a constructive opposition who's been doing more than just talking about creating new jobs, and looking at best practices internationally. Further, Cardy says the liberals just want to perpetuate the cycle of patronage that keeps them in business.
