One of the issues that should be discussed in our provincial election campaign is the proper role of government in the provincial economy.
Two very different views have been expressed in The Daily News. In one view, Glen Hilke suggests that government policy should determine total employment in the forest industry (Raw Logs Exports Cost . . . Many Jobs, March 9). In the other view, a news story suggests that government should leave such questions to the private sector (Conservatives Warmly Welcome . . . Ron Paul), March 9). This question needs to be discussed, and from the various campaigns it appears that our political parties are unaware of the need. Assumptions, such as are being generally made, are not enough.
