The opposition MLA for Georgetown-St. Peters says Georgetown seems to have been forgotten in Premier Wade MacLauchan’s latest round of community economic councils.
Steven Myers says Georgetown has a lot to build on economically with infrastructure that includes the shipyard, port facilities and post-secondary education training through Holland.
He says there are also benefits in culture and tourism.
But Myers claims the MacLauchlan government doesn’t see it that way.
He says the recent appointment of 26 community representatives to Regional Economic Advisory Councils failed to include anyone from the Georgetown area.
