More than 70 per cent of high school students in Bathurst plan to leave the region after they graduate, according to a new survey.
The students feel there aren't enough educational opportunities, high-paying jobs or activities to keep them home, the survey by the Multicultural Association Chaleur Region Inc. found.
"My heart's in Bathurst," said Philippe McDonald, a Grade 12 student at École Secondaire Népisiguit.
But he's one of the students planning to leave.
