Questions are now being raised over the kind of development being made in southwest Nova Scotia in any field, as per a new report. Since a year, the regions like the Annapolis Valley or the South Shore or the Kentville-Berwick have seen only a little change when it comes to development.
It is being said that the failure to make growth over a-year period has resulted in the closure of many large-scale sawmills. Also, many chicken and pork farms have gone through the same condition. However, it was a grant of $126 million along with a reduction in tax and power to Pacific West at Port Hawskesbury that helped the mill to persist.
Besides, the report finds that tourism industry has seen a large decline as well as the Yarmouth-Portland-Bar Harbor ferry is continuing no more.
Though, lots of efforts were made in past few years to create economic activity and jobs with the funding amount provided to the area. It has been found that this time industries like Trenton Industries, DOSCO, water plant and paper mills have been utilizing the money improperly.
“The big question is how can it actually represent all of Nova Scotia and not just Halifax”? Myrgan Inc.’s Tim Merry said.
