    dhe old bait-and-switch. They weren't getting their way on Muskrat, so they pick a different fight with "the evil oil companies". And it will work, not a doubt. Newfoundlanders are so pathetic, predictable, and politically pliable.

    While I applaud Jerome Kennedy for trying to force major petroleum companies to build their infrastructure in Newfoundland and Labrador, as a lawyer himself, he's about to make a careless mistake. The careless mistake is that he's planning to charge penalties on construction contractor and oil companies building Hebron GBS infrastructure outside the province, and according to Canadian law, that is illegal. If anyone has never ever taken a Commercial Law course at a college or university level, you're probably familiar about Public Policy, which states that some contracts are not enforceable. One contract type or clause not enforceable under the law are penalties. In other words, if the Dunderdale Government plans to take Suncor or other Hebron partners to court for not paying their penalties, guess what, they will lose as contractual penalties are a Public Policy violation. That's why as a lawyer, Jerome Kennedy should know better.

    If you want more fabrication to happen in NFLD, you have to offer competitive salaries/packages to the rest of the country. It's simple really. Do you really think any Newfoundlander would choose to work away given the same amount of money?

    If he's ready to fight he should start now. Americans hold all the senior positions in Bull Arm right now. Qualified NL'ers are looked over. They have brought their Ocean Ranger attitude with them. Money talks, safety walks. When is Exxon going to have to submit NL Benefits Reports to the CNLOPB nand have them posted online?

    Halifax must not want it. Maybe St. Perrie is up for it, but most of those guys are fishing of course. Do what we are going to do with MRF! Give away the power we don't need and can't used and sell it for a pathic profit and call it GRAVY and a then call it a day. Win WIN! Maybe its reasons like this that people don't tunk NL is a good place to do business! Why deal when they can just get it for nothing!
