    I do agree that Bull Arm Owns the Towers and therefore, from a legal perspective, they have to be returned. But since there are two stair towers, why can't Government give Marystown a break and let them keep one of the stair towers and send the other one back to Bull Arm at least for the time being? Thereby, creating a fair playing field for both Marystown and Bull Arm. I have questioned the minister before with regard to Governments role in Bull Arm and how it creates an unfair advantage for us here in Marystown. Kiewitt has to assume all overhead costs of it's facilities where as anybody and ther dog, so to speak, can go in to Bull Arm and all the overhead costs are covered by the Government. So as minister Kathy Dunderdale indicated if they want to see both Marystown and Bull Arm succeed then here is her chance to put actions to her words let Marystown keep one for now and send the other one to Bull Arm.

    Another example of the Marystown Town Council not taking the time to inform themselves.

    I have enjoyed working in various centres throughout your beautiful province over the past 15 years but the biggest black mark on Newfoundland and Labrador is this 'welfare everything for nothing' mentality that exists in the out ports where you seem to blame all your woes on your capital city.

    Why is it that you feel the world owes you so much?

    My discussion with our MHA was as follows- If someone lends you something you have a responsibility to return it. If however, it can be shown that another route would be more benifical to all groups involved then government should explore that route
    Makes sense to me and it's all we asked.
    Put away the guns we are not bad people just suggesting what is best for us all.
