    Who cares where he's from, he did a good turn in helping a police officer,that's the important thing,not where he's from.

    Dear FACT CHECKER...you missed the point...you are far too concerned with being petty. Who really cares where the person was from, just that they helped is the positive point. In the future, please consider using a different forum to make your point about amalgamation!

    The RNC reported it was a man from Mount Pearl. If you know that this is incorrect, please contact the RNC and let them know and I'm sure if that detail is wrong they would issue a corrected news release. Until that happens, The Telegram has no reason to question the validity of that detail in the RNC news release. The RNC reported the incident occurred near Ruth Avenue, Mount Pearl.

    How do you know it is was Mount Pearl resident who helped out? It seems as if the RNC was not talking to this person to ask for ID. The incident did not even happen in Mount Pearl. The Pitts serve as the boundary between Mount Pearl and St. John's with the actual road being in St. John's and the ditch being in Mount Pearl. If the RNC or The Telegram is making the assumption that the motorist was a Mount Pearl resident, it shows they they do not know their facts. If they are making assumptions based on location, they should have said "St. John's resident" instead or even just "a motorist. While the incident happened near Mount Pearl, remember with the exception of a few kilometers of Paradise on Kemount West, Mount Pearl is completely surrounded by St. John's which is all the more reason for amalgamation.
