Reference to a speech from 70 years ago. The results of massive federal intervention in Atlantic Canada. Some facts and figues to illustrative how massive the intervention has been. Reasons for the results. Ottatwa's good intentions and how they have held back underdeveloped regions across the country. Two examples. Some insight into the political incentives federal fiscal arrangements have created for less-developed provinces. In terms of individuals, the speaker discusses employment insurance. How our current approach is fialing the poorer parts of the country. The mystery speaker referenced at the beginning of the speech. Helping to honour his memory.
