As we plan to spend more than 7 billion on a power project with little or no demand for power, labrador coastal communities operate with coastal boats , not much different from a hundred years ago. While we plan to let nova Scotia have free electricity for 35 years, would sell power at a loss to the USA or to rich mining companies, electricity for coastal labrador is by Diesel generator, and so there is no electric heat as as we have on the island. Where we look to benefit from all the labrador narural resources for our future prosperity, these communities always get the shaft. In the 1940s the USA pushed roads up to Alaska. 70 years later roads and hydro for coastal labrador is not even an issue. Labrador has a kind and docile population. Quebec would treat them better than we do. We have a lot of priorities all screwed up. Some suggest we have a colonial attitude towards labrador. That seems to be the case. Past time it changed. Just imagine the panic in St. Johns if all shipping stopped for 6 months and all provisions for all the stores for all the stores might not get here before the cutoff date. More than a date might get cut off.

Labrador always get the shaft...It has been proven over, and over again. The people of Labrador needs to get their heads out of the sands, and take back what THEY already own, and STOP begging for SCRAPS... 1 United Labrador with the Innu,North Inuit and South Inuit get together and take Labrador back from the Colonist...(Newfoundland Goverenment) BECOME 1...LABRADOR
