I won't comment on the Woodwards , as I really don't know what went on in the Goose for the past 40 years. Suffice to say, most every NFLDER pretty well knows the Woodwards, were a major employer in that area , to this day, for many, many years.Good on them!! One thing I do know is that IOC - RIO TINTO - has been hauling out millions of tons of iron ore , concentrate and pelllets , out of our Province for the past 60 years. Fortunes have been made , over and over again , by Senior Executive , CEO's, Shareholders , etc,etc. ,and that's ok by me. A one company town who offers a great wage for producing a profitable product!! I worked there in 1979 until 1983 and a major promise that was not kept by the Company and the Provincial Government was a - NEW HOSPITAL !!!!! RIO TINTO should build the hospital OUTRIGHT , seeing the profits that have left that area for the past 60 years. It really is unbelievable that Labrador City doesn't have a new hospital. Labrador City citizens should be up in arms!!! And when the ore is gone, so are RIO TINTO!!

I guess what you really meant to say was that there will be more money for the Woodward Group of Companies. It seems that the Woodwards have almost all Government contracts in Labrador and are getting greedy for more. I guess time will tell who gets the most from the contracts that are allotted.

I agree with Mr. Woodward that Labrador needs better road, especially with their existing paved and gravel highways. For example, the Newfoundland and Labrador Government needs to speed up efforts to entirely pave the Trans Labrador Highway, especially from Happy Valley - Goose Bay to Red Bay, and fix the rut filled paved section from the Labradro/Quebec Border to Red Bay. The Quebec Government has to do their part with Highway 138 extension from Natashquan and Kegasha to Blanc Sablon in order to grow Quebec and Labrador's natural resources sector.

Wondering does it knaw at anybody in Labrador that folks in St.John's and on the island are substantially on the hook to pay up for the Muskrat although substantial benefits will be flowing into Labrador and Labrador business pockets.

About time I would say and that's coming from a townie. There have been many many years when if it wasn't for revenues flowing in from Labrador we would have been broke. And one of these days people might understand the difference between paying for an asset (MF) and paying for government services.
