Seems to me this is pretty exciting news for the Sault. I can't understand why most of the local media including MCTV aren't all over this.

This is the announcement from Emcore head office. It caused a 21% jump in the share price today. This is potentially huge for us.

You're about two days too late. It was the lead story for radio news on Monday.

Your right Grumpy that is really good news for this city.

Who knows why the local media - with the exception of Craig of course ignore the good stuff. I think that they are taking lessons from other countries and only broadcasting the negative.

It's not a matter of me being late, I saw the post on Soonews on the weekend. I'm just wondering why none of the other local media have picked it up. I didn't hear it on the radio either.

It's OK, I can be grumpy at times (I've been told), I'm just not called that very often.

Maybe you did Speedy but some of us didn't. I saw the announcement that the Sault was getting the Solar farm but not that they were going to Manufacture them here.

Thanks for posting the information Huggy!

Yes, good job, Huggy! No one else was going to make a big stink out of the fact a two-day old story isn't all over the news outlets today!

Way to step up to the plate, kid!! /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/beerchug.gif

So this means our town (which i read about this article much much earlier on) is going to maybe get some people to work or maybe not as they may bring in outsiders.

So WHAT!!!

Its not like there were 5 topics about it now was there.

Huggy wondered why no other news outlets carried the story, he wasn't announcing it.

Although I hadn't seen the story, so I'm glad he posted the link.

GAWD, why do some people on this site insist on being jerks ALL THE TIME!

Details, details. That wasn't the point of my post anyway. And the announcement to the stock exchanges was just made this morning, so both Soonews reports were still just speculation.

Could have made a quick 20% if we would have bought on the Soonews report.

A good news day is when the police have no reports of breakins, drunk drivers and drug arrests.

EMKR (Emcore) share price is up another 10% today. It would have been great to buy some of those when the first post was made on Soonews on Dec. 8. Up 30% so far in 3 days! Beats bank interest!
