    Taxpayer, when was the last time you thanked the native population for stealing their property? Us whites were not invited here, but we sure seem to think we have all the rights to do as we please. Maybe the natives should walk over to your place and put you on a reserve, see how the shoe fits on the other foot for a change.

    Some peoples kids should be kept from the computer, and Taxdodger is a prime example of that.

    WOW, and you call Alberta land of the red-necks. Newfoundland is Alabama north.
    There are wind generators in St. Lawrence and Fermeuse. Where they make-work projects as well?

    Taxpayer isn't racist. He just hates natives and bases his opinion on incorrect steroptypes. What's wrong with that? Who needs facts and intelligence to form an opinion? Goooooooooo Taxpayer!!!!

    Taxpayer from NL: You obviously have no clue about Conne River according to your idiotic racist comment. Their community is far more advanced then most rural communities in the province and they are considered a model aboriginal community across Canada. Creating wind energy for these communities is far from a make work project . While it will only create jobs for a short while but the community will be left with clean energy forever and by the way I am far from a treehugger

    OK Taxpayer, you say you are not a racist, but these people may say otherwise. And why do people always claim to be saying what everyone else is thinking, but are too afraid to say? You are clearly saying what YOU are thinking and when its not that smart, you want to spread the blame on EVERYBODY? I'm not afraid to say what is on my mind.

    Geez Taxpayer, I used to think you were just an ar$ehole, but now it turns out you're a RACIST ar$ehole. Either way, you're an ar$ehole.
    Given your comments, you should stop saying that you speak for most people and you should also stop using us to refer to whatever group you really mean(i.e. whites), because most of us don't want anything to do with you. As a final note, I hope you aren't too offended by me calling you a RACIST ar$ehole. I decided not to hold back, since I know how much you hate political correctness.
    To the folks of Conne River, I applaud your initiative and its success! Hopefully, you'll be able to build a production wind farm in the near future.

    Why go to Alabama to witness racism? It's alive and well here in our happy little province.

    Yeah, and these jobs will go to the indians in a make work project. How long will it be before they burn down the turbines. This is a waste of tax money to appease the treehuggers and the indians. What they want they get, at the expense of the hardworking taxpayers.

    People you miss the point. Nalcor and the short vision is the problem. It doesn't matter where the wind farms are. More economic benefits in all of rural newfoundland if Nalcor will smartin' up. The excuse is the amount of water needs to flow. What a crock. Build the wind farms and slow down the Holyrood plant and its environmental hazard pollution in the air.

    We will use less oil and here is a new idea. Wind power is CHEAP...FREE after capital cost is recouped. Why is the rest of world doing it? It is CHEAPER and the costs can be passed to the residents.

    Time to invest in Newfoundland with capital projects as per this article and not giving our money to buying oil for Holyrood. Making the oil company richer.

    The rest of world is talking about the environment and we here from Nalcor they are thinking of the fish. Give me a break. $$$ is the bottom line with them.

    Wind is great, but it is not always windy, so you need to supplement. What I don't get is why is Duffs going full out, burning bunker like there is no tomorrow, if we have over capacity with local hydro?

    If the energy crisis is areal and serious problem ... and I do mean if (it may in fact be a fabricated crisis to keep the price of oil high, but not so high so as to actually reduce our dependency on it thus maximizing profits for Big Oil) ... then the only viable solution in the long term is Nuclear Fusion ... and the World needs another Moon Shot or Manhattan Project type initiave, whereby the G8 countries make it Priority 1, mobilizing financial and intellectual resources to the development of a sustainable Fusion reactor within 10 years ... thereby enabling the world to have a clean, limitless source of inexpensive energy. This would reduce our dependency on Oil once and for all ...

    He's not a racist, he just has a negative perception of people based on their skin color. He needs to get a job and stopping spending all day, everyday, patrolling the comments section.

    I'm not a racist, I'm just saying what most people are thinking but are afraid because of the politically correct thought police like you lot. We know how these people behave and the disrespect they show for us unless theyre getting handouts. Its not just Indians, its the whole welfare gimme gimme crowd.
