Yesterday I had learned the company that owns the Pioneer chemical plant in Dalhousie NB has decided to close it's doors and lay off over 50 people. It's not as though Dalhousie has suffered enough from the closure of the Abitibi Bowater paper mill. With the closure of this plant the Dalhousie Spur may be looking at it's final days.
The biggest colprit in this closure is of course NB Power with their extreemly high power rate for all three area's business, residential and industry. Earlyer this week Irving had "threatend" the province that they would move their St John business's to Quebec where the power rates are much lower and more cost effective. Now I'm not big Irving fan but if they were to leave the province that's it folks....This province is done for. As for the New Brunswick North Shore....Well it's only a matter of time before all major business's are gone and the last stake will be driven into the heart of this part of the province.
