Buying opportunities continue to abound

Forecasting the challenging year ahead, Conservative MP Jeff Watson manages to sound positively Bushian (or McGuintian, if you rather).

Watson said that caring community attitude is what will bring us through this difficult time. “We have to avoid ‘me thinking’ and start ‘we thinking’,” Watson said. “Community has to be that much more important.”

He encourages people to look in on their neighbours and make personal economic decisions in a “human way” to help stimulate the economy. “If you’re planning a renovation, now’s the time to do it. Purchase that new vehicle,” he said. “We have to do our own individual part.”
