Be the boom? Ok. My boss just purchased a log home on the Humber River resort, sent his kid to a mainland university and just bought a 60k SUV. I'm still taking metro bus to work and eating Kraft Dinner 3x a week. In a province with so much wealth it is disheartening that it is spread amongst so few. Guess what? How about a story about that?

Be the Boom? Who's benefiting from this boom other than businesses? Certainly not their employees making peanuts working for them, no wonder people continue to leave the province to work out west.

Who exactly is your campaign directed at? I am sure that most residents do not work in the oil industry. So your "boom" is not felt by everyone. Min wage workers with no benefits don't feel any benefit from the "boom" The cost of living went up ten fold and their pay does not allow any perks. The cheapest rent is $1100. If you can get 35hrs a week $350.00 x 2 = 700.00 less taxes... this does not create a "boom" only hardship. The average person becomes low income in your "boom"as prices soar around them.
