One-way flow of Maritimers continues west

According to the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council, nearly 13,000 Atlantic Canadians moved to Alberta for work between July 2005 and July 2006. That's not the end of it, according to a story in on CBC.ca.The think tank says the flow of skilled workers west will continue for some time and that's despite efforts like the magazine supplement published this week in several Alberta newspapers, trying to lure homesick Maritimers back. The council said that the impact of this migration of skilled workers will last a decade and the best that Atlantic province employers can do is to emphasize the disparity in costs of living (sky high in Alberta, low in the east).
