I'm not going to ride on this too much, since it depresses me. Suffice to say that all the young 'thinkers' that I have known have been forced (enticed?) to go to San Francisco or New York. Any university graduates remaining can't find jobs. Rationally, I think that all the old boys are trying to milk the entire economy, and control all thinking, since that could be dangerous! :) Reminds me of Facebook destroying Instagram, but in Ontario this is done before ideas even get out the door.
However, I shall always be looking for any sign that things are improving! Hope springs eternal! :)
