Funny Math: 27 New Jobs for Every 100 Lost - The "Just Transition" Isn't "Just"

The Natural Resources Committee is continuing its study of the so-called "Just Transition", which envisions natural resource workers shifting jobs to what is identified as clean, green employment.

The federal government is funding multiple organizations with hundreds of millions of dollars to identify what those jobs will be - completely ignoring that provinces are already studying future job requirements, and investing in training and retraining in conjunction with provincial educational institutions, to do exactly this work. Is this not expensive overlap?

I also cited the Conference Board's calculation that there will be 27 new green jobs for every 100 jobs lost from the resource economy, yet we are giving out large subsidies up to $20,000 for 12 months for each of those new jobs. How does all of this add up?
