April 16, 2019 - Loss of jobs devastating for Truro, surrounding community

Lenore Zann, NDP MLA for Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River, made the following statement about reports that Crossley Carpet will shut down in July:  

“This is a devastating loss for those who work at the factory, their loved ones, and the wider community. This company is one of the largest employers in Truro and having over 240 people faced with unemployment as of this summer is difficult to imagine.

This factory has provided good jobs for residents of Truro for decades and having them pull up shop like this is extremely disappointing. My heart goes out to the employees and their families. The McNeil government needs to be here with us in Truro making sure that the employees have the transition support they need.‚ÄĚ
