Moncton Unaffected by Recession?

The idea that Moncton would not suffer negative effects from the US/UK/World Wide recession/depression sounds crazy at first brush. However, Moncton wasn't doing that great to begin with. House prices are relatively low and so are salaries. The Canadian dollar is substantially lower than the American dollar so call centres serving American companies are relatively safe. They continue their hiring binge. And although it is difficult to know if these are new jobs, or simply replacing employees who have committed suicide, they are actual job postings.

People hoarding money, the cause of any recession, need to put it somewhere, and the American subsidiaries of Canadian banks are happy to offer their cheap Moncton based "advisors". Indians haven't learned French, so Sitel Moncton continues to service Bell customers in Quebec. People still need heating oil, so job levels are the same at Exxon. iPhone has been good for Rogers, and their down town call centre is so full they are apparently trying to convince their Moncton workers to work from home!

I'm guessing folks haven't been cancelling their insurance, so that is good for the large Moncton insurance industry. The recession should leave Molson unaffected. During a recession, folks rarely cut down on toilet paper consumption and the local warehouses are just as full of food as before.

In addition, the provincial government is going to build a casino and a new courthouse in the city. Major investments in a metro of about 100,000 people.

In addition, the baby boom is entering retirement age, and they love the nearby ocean. If baby boomers and casino construction isn't enough to maintain the construction industry, then there is always the influx of desperate Northern New Brunswickers who have lost their jobs in the lumber industry.

Certainly there will be a downside if the recession last too long. Underemployed folks who would have traditionally gone to Motreal, Toronto and Fort McMurray may have to stay in town, boosting the local unemployment numbers. Still, compared to Ontario and Alberta, Moncton's recession should be quite mild.

RBC Bank President Gordon Nixon - Salary $11.73 Million


$100,000 - MISTAKE (FISHERMEN'S LOAN)


I'm a commercial fisherman fighting the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC Bank) over a $100,000 loan mistake. I lost my home, fishing vessel and equipment. Help me fight this corporate bully by closing your RBC Bank account.


There was no monthly interest payment date or amount of interest payable per month on my loan agreement. Date of first installment payment (Principal + interest) is approximately 1 year from the signing of my contract.
Demand loan agreements signed by other fishermen around the same time disclosed monthly interest payment dates and interest amounts payable per month.The lending policy for fishermen did change at RBC from one payment (principal + interest) per year for fishing loans to principal paid yearly with interest paid monthly. This lending practice was in place when I approached RBC.
Only problem is the loans officer was a replacement who wasn't familiar with these type of loans. She never informed me verbally or in writing about this new criteria.
