What a crock, Shirley Bond

March 20, 2013 Shirley Bond says today at the Osoyoos Indian Band Cultural Centre, that she was here to announce the wonderful news about the prison in Oliver.  According to Ms Bond:

“It (the prison) is the centrepiece of the second phase of the largest capital expansion in B.C. Corrections’ history and will increase corrections capacity to meet current and future demand. This project will see 1,000 jobs during the construction phase and 240 permanent jobs once the project is complete. It is an important part of our job creation strategy,” said Minister of Justice and Attorney General, Shirley Bond.

Memo to Shirley Bond: If prison jobs are the best your government can do in terms of job creation in an agriculture and tourism region such as ours then it’s no wonder your days in office are numbered. Talk about thinking inside the box.
