    Im originally from NFLD and i wanted to say that the ammendment to Bill 29 is reactionary and oppressive to the people of NFLD.Countries that have monarchial type of govs.where the monarch have complete control over the people have these type of restrictions on the people.This is the type of laws that lead to police states.All progressive people and unions in NFLd should fight against this reactionary piece of legislation.

    RIP Burton Winters.. it's such a shame that we did not help you when you needed us most. a 14 year old boy lost and alone in the frozen north. no doubt you must have wondered when we were going to arrive and rescue you. I feel so ashamed as a Canadian and a Newfoundlander that we did not try to help and now all we do is cover up our negligence. Pleas forgive us Burton.

    The next SAR Crisis may cause you Don to change your tune! Pathetic is an understatement! Don, don't you think we should be trying to SAVE people that are LOST rather than trying to get your PC candidate electedn? Wiseman (and a few others) is representing people who could not be there in person & is OUR VOICE! Our elected government members certainly are not representing anyone that wants to see improvements in SAR!

    One paragraph states Makkovik is too far to send Cormorant helicopter for rescue missions from Gander. This to me is is an excuse that is completely unacceptable. Another statement that really put question into my mind is that they said if the Cormorant was in Makkovik they could not do rescuing in Maritimes in case of emergency or plane crash. There were no emergency being reported in that area at the time and the boys life and a chance to live was denied. Every human including the dirty politicians are given a chance for life and will be rescued if and when it becomes necessary. So inquiry is a MUST. .
