I lived in Fredericton from 2004 to 2007 and well remember this boondoggle, that didn't even get past your third bullet.... http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/future-of-board-game-factory-in-doubt-1.625240Based on my previous experience living in the Maritimes, this typically means there will actually be fewer jobs than that to start, but that 180 is the ultimate goal. With most of these types of arrangements, it plays out as follows:
* Company rolls into town with the promise of a "monorail" (see "The Simpsons").
* Locals froth with lofty expectations of good jobs and better economic conditions.
* Company grabs a bunch of subsidies and tax incentives while paying the lowest wages/benefits they can.
* Company closes up shop and lays everyone off, falling far short of their initial hiring goals and other expectations.
I imagine a lot of out of luck folks in the American rust belt voted for Trump with hopes of the monorail.
