On Blackberry In Bedford

So I heard on the CBC news this morning that Blackberry that had an office in Bedford will be closing its door soon even though the NDP government had promised them a lean for at least $10 million in the next 5 years?  The closing of this customer support office would mean that about 350 people would be losing their high paying jobs in Bedford – Halifax.  Now what gives right?

As far as I understand, the government have had been giving out money to big companies like Blackberry for the longest time, in hope that they will churn out jobs.  But for $10 million, wouldn’t it be a lot more feasible to support a small business from Canada to expand or to hire more people or to go internationally? Doesn’t make sense this government at all – the big guys are affected but moreso the little guys like us right?
