    Wait what I must have missed something. What was it that the Premier gave away?

    I have to laugh at all the half-wits on here. No matter what the provincial gov't does the people on here have a problem with it. Disagreeing is one thing, but this is ridiculous.
    Common sense appears to be in short supply.

    I think the telegram should require a basic intelligence test before people are permitted to post on here.
    Public opinion is great, but try and keep it informed.

    Newfoundland and Labrador: Forecasts a $750-million deficit for 2009-10, a heavy drop from the $2.4-billion surplus recorded last year.


    Thanks for nothing Flipper Williams. Keep on giving it all away. Have not for sure with your way of doing business.

    Newfoundland and Labrador's budget deficit figures are definitely way off given that crude oil futures have been above $60.00 per barrel as of late.

    Keep in mind their deficit projections were based on crude oil futures between $40.00 and $60.00 per barrel.

    Therefore, their deficit could be much lower than expected, and don't be surprised if we end up with a budget surplus due to higher than expected crude oil futures.

    How's about we start with this......

    The $2.4-billion surplus recorded last year.

    If you think he invested it, then where is the ROI? Not in our pockets or Health Care now is it!

    Wow, what an opportunity lost. It may have only been a $749,500,000 deficit if they hadn't given that generous donation to poor old cash-starved Rolls Royce. I mean, the Royce only had a billion and a half worth of profits last year. How could they possibly manage with Danny's tidy little gift. Good thing we don't have a health care crisis or anything to deal. What would we do?
