How many jobs does a $300-million repayable investment create?

Industry Minister Tony Clement announced Monday that the federal government is investing $300-million in a $1-billion research-and-development project being undertaken by Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation.

The press release from the Conservative government says the investment "is expected to create and maintain an average of more than 700 highly skilled jobs during the project work phase and more than 2,000 jobs during the 15-year benefits phase."

Hmmmm. So you may think 700 to 2000 new jobs are being created? Wrong! The key word in that phrase is "maintain."
