Province claims federal government money didn't meet demand
Hundreds of British Columbians left jobless by the economic downturn have been told by the province they can't get the type of retraining they were expecting under the federal government's "Economic Action Plan."
"Where is all the money?" asked Shawn Lalonde of Maple Ridge, B.C., who applied for training as a heavy equipment operator, only to be told his application was cancelled due to lack of funds.
