The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.
Wednesday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Business section.
• The new minister of fisheries and aquaculture says separate meetings held Tuesday with representatives of Ocean Choice International (OCI) and the Fish, Food and Allied Workers’ union (FFAW) on the future of the Fortune fish plant gave him an opportunity to listen to both sides. “I’d say I was pleased with the meetings today,” said Derrick Dalley, seated inside his department’s offices at the Petten Building in St. John’s.
• John Slaney is talking about his work these days, coaching the Phoenix Coyotes’ defensive prospects on the American Hockey League’s Portland Pirates.
“All these players back there are smart. They know where to be and, for the most part, what to do,” said Slaney Tuesday morning as the Pirates prepared to take on the St. John’s IceCaps that night in the first of a two-game series. “I think the most important thing most of them still have to learn is when to shoot the puck. Sometimes, instead of shooting when they should, they’re looking for second options. But my old saying is, ‘If you don’t shoot the puck, you don’t score.’”
• Joseph Rice may have admitted to luring a teenager over the Internet, but doesn’t see how wrong it was, a judge said Tuesday. “He readily admits what he’s done,” Judge James Walsh said in sentencing Rice at provincial court in St. John’s. “However, he shows no insight into the seriousness of Internet luring.”
• Lawyer Bern Coffey said Nalcor has not given a valid answer in dismissing concerns he raised about the water management agreement for the Churchill Falls reservoir.
Nalcor issued a statement in response to Coffey’s letter to the editor in the Weekend Telegram, which noted the contract with Hydro-Québec states firm capacity shall be available at all times when Hydro-Québec has requested it.
Coffey said before the province sanctions billions in spending on the Muskrat Falls project, either an agreement on water management rights is needed with Hydro-Québec, or the courts have to iron out what Nalcor and Hydro-Québec’s rights are.
