TALLAHASSEE (CBS4) — Gov. Rick Scott has announced two Canadian companies will be creating about 110 new jobs in Florida.

Scott made the announcement Friday in Toronto at the end of a five-day Canadian trade mission.

The governor said Toronto Sky Aviation Inc., is building a 30,000 square foot aircraft repair facility in Opa-Locka.

It’s expected to employ about 100 people in South Florida.

Scott also said UCC Industries International Inc. will add about 10 jobs with an average wage of $44,000 at its U.S. headquarters in Tampa.

The only other jobs-related announcement during Scott’s trip was that Garda World Security Corp. is moving its U.S. headquarters and 100 jobs to Boca Raton.

Talks on that deal, though, began before Scott took office in January.

    Ummmmmm – He promised 700,000 new jobs. He’s killed thousands of jobs by refusing the Federal Stimulus money, He’s spending thousands to drug test state employees and public assistance recipients when there is no evidence that a drug problem exists in this area – especially state employees. He has decimated the environmental protection laws, has disenfranchised numerous voters with the limitations passed and signed. He took a 5-day trip out of the country (in his private jet) And all he got was 100 jobs with one company and 10 with another? I sure as hell hope he got a lousy T-shirt.
