Why does Cape Breton University (CBU) need a new building? Think of it like a farmer with a 50-year-old tractor. It still works but it can’t harvest a lot of crops. The farmer needs a new combine and his crop production will double. The building, like the tractor, is just a tool to double production and put more food on all our tables.
I believe under CBU President David Dingwall’s leadership team, the proposed Centre for Discovery and Innovation will grow revenue from $120 million to over $200 million. It will create at least 1,000 new jobs and help bring home family members that had to leave to find work.
That’s one hell of a tractor and why I am supporting the new building project.
