48,000 people out of work? That'd be more than 10% of the Edmonton
workforce!

Ron Hayter spent 24 years as an alderman with the Edmonton city
council before retiring (not seeking re-election) last election. I
have no idea why Hayter would blame Grosvenor for anything -- assuming
he did in the first place... (This seems unlikely.)


>mentioning he is now considering emigration to Australia or New Zealand.

Good luck! Australia is difficult to immigrate into -- and the older
the applicant, the harder it gets. A friend of mine looked into it
recently -- his brother owns a small business near Brisbane, so my
friend would have a job and a place to live GUARANTEED. He still
didn't have enough points to qualify.
