Urban Centres Need To Grow

Growing the province's urban centres, like Saint John,  is key towards future growth and prosperity -- that from David Campbell of Jupia Consultants.

Campell was speaking at a Saint John Board of Trade luncheon and he tells CHSJ News the urban vs rural debate is a distraction.

He says urban growth does not have to come at the expense of rural growth and it will be the urban sector that will move the province forward.

He says if Saint John focuses on it's key sectors like IT, healthcare, and energy, other industries like retail will grow as well.
