    ADV fully diluted market cap: $300M, so much for multi-billion in order for governments to not go into debt they need the mining industry. would you rather be america on the brink of default or pay a little more tax. suck it up as for minerals being processed here, there aren't any decent-sized smelters in canada, let alone newfoundland. if you want to put your hand up to build one, multiply the cost of muskrat by 5 fold, then make another muskrat to power it

    So additional debt will be incurred by low and middle income ratepayers/taxpayers and our scarce windfall oil revenues are to be passed over to Nalcor so that Nalcor can build a transmission line for Danny's mining company (Alderon)........ This is especially galling when you consider that it will cost somewhere in the range of 20-40 cents/KWh to generate and transmit the power to Alderon, and Alderon will pay only about 2-3 cents/KWh for that power ---- essentially near-zero cost power for multi-billion dollar mining companies paid for on the backs of low and middle income earners ---- Why incur that cost when Quebec could sell them all the power they need for competitive prices -----AT NO COST TO NL RATEPAYERS? ..... This government is making ordinary workers/homeowners pay dearly so that the mining industry can have higher profit margins. It is as simple as that.

      Labrador has been a meca for business paid for by the Labrador people... They come in, give a few low to lower job's to the local's too keep quiet. Then they reep all the benifits and leave a mess, for the Labrador people to suffer. All is not right with this... Take back Labrador!!!

    Whatever happened to that bombastic premier of ours who used to say our resources like minerals should be processed here in NL? I wonder what he'd think of this Alderan plan?
