W Maclean is correct as it was Nalcor that spent $25 million of taxpayers money to find a bunch of empty holes out there. Dunderdale it was "a worthwhile experiment". Twenty-five million could have bought more MRI and catscan machines than the Stephenville hospital could ever use. It's all about priorities and oil exploration gives a false sense of hope.

"You do not know what you are talking about. If there was a chance of real oil or gas deposits the big companies would be out there, not the local fly-by-nighters." — Including, astoundingly, Nalcor, which has decided that highly speculative drilling for makework is within its mandate.

Nothing commercially viable found in the past 23 years. Keep the hope alive in this election year, Shawn. You do not know what you are talking about. If there was a chance of real oil or gas deposits the big companies would be out there, not the local fly-by-nighters.
