As bad a couple of weeks as it has been for Premier Dunderdale, there was some good news on the economic front.
That news is not going to make headlines as the storm clouds of internal party dissent and poor polls roll over the Confederation Building.
Newfoundland and Labrador continues to lead Atlantic Canada in economic growth and job creation. Since August 2009, employment in Newfoundland and Labrador has grown by nearly eight per cent.
Juxtapose this against the weak employment growth in the other Maritime provinces and you some reason for optimism.
Of course, we really need to diversify our economy and foster job growth in other sectors.
