    Great to see the gov. is still considering the anglo saxon route,I think if we could manage to get this link to the island, and on to the mainland it would be a huge advantage to the province as a whole. Access to reasonable priced hydro would be a great reason for heavy industry to set up here. As for the usual liberal trolls who consider the tely their very own little propaganda machine, well what can you say? There is an election comming up, the people will make a choice to have either Mr. Williams, or Ms. Jones as the leader of the provice, I know who I will be voting for.

    Lab 12, the last time I bothered to check Lab was a part of Newf unless you know something different please enlighten me.I C Clearly.....NOT. What is the alternative. I know lets keep Holyrood going burning that good old coal,that will keep us in the backwoods for sure.This is a monumental project with many hurdles still to clear. I would rather have Dan Williams try to get this off the ground than sittin on his arse collecting his big fat salary......oh I forgot he does his work for free.You negative types need to find somthing else to do with yourselves ......I got an idea ...... why don't you guys run for office and then you can make all the decisions.Heaven help us.

    Prior to Danny's next Billion Dollar Gaffe, he better be sure that the Territory of Labrador approve his plan. I am sure we would be willing to rent the area out to him at a profit. Thinking he will face no resistance from those he has taken so much from is yet again foolish thinking. Maybe we will become part of Quebec just to make things interesting.

    The fairy tale continues. There is no route to the U.S. and Ontario markets, and none coming. Are we really going to spend all that money on a dam to service the declining energy needs of this province? We have two less paper mills and no heavy industry. Where's the financing for this project? The land claims agreement? The transmission corridor?
    I'd like to see NALCOR's books - there's no reason why we can't see the expenses associated with building a hydro facility for the province - other than the government may be a little embarassed by how much all this planning is costing us. Where is the transparancy that this government promised?

    lab12,
    I am also from Labrador, and your opinion does not provide the consensus from Labradorians.

    Labrador does deserve it fair share of benefits from the Lower Churchill, but this project will only be possible thru the concerted afforts of the entire province. Labrador will provide the raw materials (i.e. the river), but the whole province is needed to provide the financing, skills and manpower needed to complete this project. Don't forget that.

    Finally, your threats to secede and join Quebec are foolish. Do you really think Quebec would be so wonderful to Labrador?

      We certainly would be "treated" better by Quebec, anything is better than being a part of Newfoundland, seperation from them would be the best thing for Labradorians, how many people do you see working on Hibernia for example who are Labradorians??? Do we "Labrador" benefit from Hibernia? Not likely! Another Joey Smallwood deal as far as I am concerned !!!!!
