Ralph never cared about his province he sold it out, sending raw bitumen to the states. He also changed every labour law in the book so chinese workers and bayman newfies could go to alberta ans work for free! All the high grade ore is gone Kathy! Well done Mr.Grimes!

The three billion being spent in Long Harour is a drop in the ocean that VALE could care less about. All of the ore from Voisey's Bay will be refined outside of the province and there will never be enough nickel refined in Newfoundland to chrome a car bumper, further there will never be an ounce of ore come back to Long Harbour. The hydromet process has never worked anywhere else in the world, why would it work here. We have been hood winked again, SUPRISE! SUPRISE!

You may not be too far off of the mark. At Vale's current levels of production they are producing approx. 1 Billion dollars worth of ore per year. No doubt that will increase as the size of the mining operation expands. The 3 Billion for Long Harbour will pale in comparison to what they actually take out of the ground.
- Wanted for upcoming election two years hence, Politicians with Ralph Klein's integrity and fierce love for his province. He was a politician who would never allow his province's raw resources to be given away for others to prosper.

Wanted for 2015 election Politicians with Ralph Klein's integrity and fierce love for his province. Even though Ralph Klein was a blunt he was a popular man who fiercely defended the interests of his home province of Alberta. He was a politician who would never allow his province's raw resources to be given away for others to prosper. When are we going to be graced with politicians who hold such attributes as Klein?

FOGHORN LEGHORN, surely your not suggesting that "A" former Liberal Government would sell us out?? and surely your not suggesting that a present government is doing the same? and Heaven forbid that some multi national company would take advantage of us?? I mean this has never happened in our past. our "Leaders" have always been forthright and honest with us poor voters, they would never cause us any hardship or hide things from us. FOGHORN LEGHORN how could you even suggest such a thing?? I remember a former Premier saying that not a spoonful of ore would leave the province. the ship running from Voisey's bay Labrador to Quebec is always empty, it's not removing any ore, it's just bringing in supplies. may as well write a song about it people. at least we can get some comfort listening to the music, after all we're paying for the fiddler.

I have heard that workers at the Voiseys Bay mine actually have an unofficial pool betting if any ore from the mine will ever be processed in Long Harbour. The ore is rumoured to unacceptable for the hydromet processing being built in Long Harbour. The only reason Long Harbour was built was to satisfy the MOU signed with the Provincial Government at the time. Only time will tell, the proof is in the pudding as the saying goes!
