- Alberta saw population growth of 6200 people.
- Number of people "employed" in Alberta grew by 3000.
- Number of people "unemployed" in Alberta dropped by 5800 people.
- Alberta's overall employment rate was unchanged at 68.8%, the second highest of any Province.
So what we actually have is an increase in the number of people on EI and NOT a soaring increase in the number of people who are jobless in Alberta. You spin me right 'round baby, right 'round.
