AND WHEREAS the unemployment rate in many communities is at an unacceptable level;

AND WHEREAS the present Government has taken action which hurts the economy of rural areas of this province;

AND WHEREAS, despite the promises made during the last election, the current Government has not taken the actions necessary to deal with the immediate crisis which exists in rural parts of this province;
