    Should have them in until the cows came home. Man do they (MHA's) feel important. I'm sure they will love the attention the fillibuster will give them over Christmas. After all, aren't they all about getting attention? Bluffs.

    like the federal fillibuster a few years ago, I'm wating to hear some provincial MP's start patting themselves on their own back & going on about how hard they have it 'cause they hardly had any breaks, terrible food, lack of proper sleep, lack of washing facilities yada yada yada....what our first responders, our men & women in uniform go through constantly.....gimme a break.....

    This year we wondered what we could give NALCOR and Ed for Christmas . With some timely help from Dunderdale and Co. we just turned over the provincial treasury to them. Now we can all GIVE happily ever after.
