What to do in terms of job/education for this new economy?

I am in Canada (BC) and with the economy slowing and such, what is the best way to protect myself? I am in an entry level job now and growing "old" but I want to know the best course of action. White collar jobs? learn a trade? Get a degree? I am open to ideas... Thanks!

They want some kind of a neutral, politically-savvy, bland response. Right? [more inside]
