It appears that the Government of Belize must have thought that since Fortis is a Newfoundland based company that being expropriated would not be a surprise. After all, the Government of Newfoundland expropriated Abitibi because the company did not do what the Government of Newfoundland wanted. In Cupids, the Government of Newfoundland expropriated private property to create the Cupids Cove Plantation Provincial Historic Site. Funny enough, no place called the Cupids Cove Plantation is ever mentioned anywhere in the historic record of Newfoundland. The Government created by politically motivated expropriation, an historic site to commemorate a place that never existed in Newfoundland history! The message that politically motivated expropriation sends to international business is very negative. No capitalist corporations based in democratic nations will invest in any Country or Province where the possibility of being politically expropriated exists. It is possible that a number of shareholders in Fortis are Newfoundland politicians and bureaucrats. What goes around comes around!

Hey Fortis! Why don't you try passing on some of your record profits to its workers! You know, the people that make it happen!

Fotis is a great NL company, we should all be very proud that they are so successful, and have decided to remain based in NL.

Time to end the NL Power monopoly with respect to the distribution.
