Next up on our list of top New Brunswick bloggers is David Campbell. David’s blog, called It’s the Economy, Stupid began in (copied from his blog) “October 2004 as a forum for discussion about economic development in New Brunswick and the Atlantic Provinces. I felt then, as I do now, that economic development is not discussed widely enough in this province. After over 2,000 posts and 5,000 comments and upwards of 6,000 readers in a month, I think it is serving its purpose. Let’s have a conversation about economic development and ideas that can transform New Brunswick.”
