Too many university grads, not enough tradespeople in Canada

National Post: 'For the past several decades, we’ve been producing far too many social scientists and too few plumbers and electricians. A lot of teenagers nowadays can’t even drive a nail into a two-by-four or change a flat tire on a car. The plain truth is, as a society we haven’t done a very good job of preparing young Canadians for good-paying careers in the skilled trades.

'Even though our economy is becoming increasingly digital, we will still need people to build machines and houses and cars. And a lot of those jobs will require people with skilled technical trades. But unless we start teaching those skilled trades to young Canadians at an early age, we won’t have enough people here in this country to make and build things, and once we lose that know-how, our standard of living will drop significantly.'
