Troubling news, but not unexpected. There is an economic firestrom occuring in every one of Canada's trading partners. We are now starting to get a little warm ourselves. Good thing we have Harper running the show or this headline would have happened last year, followed by: 1% contraction, 2.5% contraction, industrial worksite shutdowns, collapsing dollar, massive unemployment

I did get it right. "N.L." is Canadian Press style and is what should be used in our newspapers. "NL," without periods, is mainly used as a postal code abbreviation. I have no idea who would abbreviate "Newfoundland" as "N.F.L.D." I've never seen that, and I agree with you: it certainly shouldn't be in any newspaper.
