You really ghet an insight into the minds of Newfoundanders with this story...a lot of people laugh it off, and don't see a real problem --- as long as she's away from the dock, just sink her and forget about her. And this is the "educated" crowd from town, not the 'backwards' outport crowd. Which is why we have, and will always have, shamefully polluted bays, coasts and shorelines...we don't even see any problem with it. The ocean is just one big, black hole of a dump. A Newfoundland education.....what a waste.

Chances are, Trepassey will be getting a new present, Coast Guard will tow it to Trepassey and thats where it will stay

Obviously, when you get a taste of old St. John's, you just don't want to leave.

Oh ... JUST PEACHY. Years of harbouring this rust bucket, a disaster for the crew and their families when they were abandonded on a St. John's wharf, and now we're scrambling to prevent an environmental disaster off our coast. SOMEONE has to be accountable. REALLY accountable!!!

Now who could've seen that coming? A stupid question, but before the Port Authority gives the green light to towing this junk out the harbour, does it require a bond to be posted to ensure that it makes it to international waters and does not become a further liability for Canadian taxpayers?

Just go sink it and get it over with...

You can't seriously tell me that no one knew what was up from the start. Really? Middle of winter, with a "plan" to tow it ---- at great cost ---- for scrap metal money? REALLY?! We get what we deserve, as always. To stupid to be funny.
