more corporate favours. the star lake issue raises a private water 'rights' issue and now polluters get a pass. free trade is a free pass for corporations, a right to own our water, and now a right to pollute our environment. thanks danny. you did a good job for your corporate brethern. we need to get a grip on what is becoming a very cozy relationship b/w the corporations that we allow to operate on our land and the government that we elect to serve us. fast.

kevin: i can't wait to hear from liberal mp scott simms on this. he probably will blame harper for the court ruling. but wait a minute wasn't it liberal prime ministers who appointed these judges/friends to the supreme court bench in the first place ?

all 3 parties in the house were responsible for this expropriation, costing the newfoundland/labrador taxpayers millions for the environmental cleanup. my question: when are these mha's going to resign for this mess they have created and opoligize to the people of central newfoundland ?

No, no, no....you've got it all wrong! Little Man Dan was the lead on this file; and, as an intrepid lawyer, he couldn't be wrong by expropriating Abitibi assets. And, I remember then Ministers of the Clown, Johnston saying "the polluter pays"; and Dunderdale, "they'll be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law". The effects of the Danny Damage Era will be felt for generations to come. This monumental boondoggle will cost hundreds of millions in cleanups, legal fees and future settlements. Thanks Dan bye, adding to your legacy.

Too bad the government jumped the fence when it came to the AbitibiBowater mill and now the taxpayers are left with the huge bill to clean up someone elses mess? Steven Harper must be smiling yet again as we are dealt another blow by the crowd up along! I wonder had this plant been in central Canada would the high court have ruled differently? After all we are only NLers and we have never mattered before?
