Maybe they will bribe our politicians! What will Kathy do now? Better give Danny a call or Mr.Tobin if he can quit hanging around the corporate elitist in TO? What does Miss O'Neil have to say with Exxon she is really calling the shots not Dunderderdale!

They never learn from their expensive past mistakes either. The tailings pond (Sandy Pond) in Long Harbour is also going to be contained by earthen dams and will be much larger. So when Vale are finished polluting the watershed there and pull up stakes we will have this to look forward to. The mining industry pulls countless billions of dollars from our resources so why can't we force them to dispose of their toxic leftovers in a more environmentally sound manner? They should do a few tourism ads showcasing all of the industrial disasters scattered around the province, I am sure they would have some lovely colors too.

You are 100 per cent correct. There is only one thing that matters - jobs, jobs, jobs! Who cares what is left for future generations to clean up.

ok media, lets make this clear for the record. taxpayers are responsible for the cleanup, not a bunch of useless overpayed politicians who couldn't run a lemonade stand let alone the province.

Surprise, surprise.....let's hear it one more time for unparalleled, uninterrupted government incompetence! If anyone ever did the math on how much it has cost Newfounda;lnd for every single job that ever existed hear.....between the corporate tax breaks, direct government handouts, lifeline financing for the years before ultimate closure, and the final clean-up costs....it would have been cheaper to simply mail out big cheques to the population every month and hope that a few bright people would simply get so bored that they'd try to start a business. But election after election was bought and paid for with that other "strategy", so it was all worth it.
