Wow - a lot of vitriol against small rural communities! Without the culture they created the tourism industry would be a lot smaller, culture-based industries would not exist, and the sense of place that draws so many to the province would have drifted away.

Small town nl survives by retirees and people who choose to work outside the town. These small towns are great to live in but for government to try to provide jobs for everyone there makes no sense. There is lots of chatter comming from the opposition parties concerning the fishery it may be a way of life for some it puts very little into the economy when one considers how much they take out. The fishery for all intents is dead it`s time it was buried, in my opinion it is not a very good vote getter as most people the handouts given to the fishermen

Yet again we have more complaining from the Northern Pen. If the government does not hold title to the property, then the government should not be responsible for it's upkeep. Go after Daley Bros. or whoever holds title to the property to get action. I am so sick and tired with some people who believe the Gubmint has to do every little thing for them, next they will want Gubmint to wipe their hiney's for them.

Even better again, Why doesn't the government give Englee's citizens a package to move out of Englee and then who cares about the building falling into the water? All these places that have 50 per cent unemployment are not gong to get any better than they are now. It doesn't matter who the government is and who the premier is be it Brian Peckford, Clyde Wells, Brian Tobin, Kathy Dunderdale, Danny Williams, the state of the smallest towns in rural NL is beyond hope. This is a worldwide issue not just a NL issue. No more clap trap from politicians who say they have a plan. Thirty years of plans have failed. Let;s move em out.
