Mayor And Enterprise Saint John Hopeful Of Economic Expansion

Both Mayor Mel Norton and Enterprise Saint John are hoping the announcement of almost a thousand new jobs with the modernisation of the Irving Pulp mill at Reversing Falls will be the catalyst to spark more economic development. 

A couple of other mayors in the Saint John area are bullish on the local economy. Quispamsis Mayor Murray Driscoll tells CHSJ News it appears the worst is over and he believes Saint John has turned the corner. 

Grand Bay-Westfield Mayor Grace Losier says the Saint John region was already up something like 18 hundred new jobs even before the announcement by J-D Irving.
