The Telegram


The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.

Friday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Arts & Entertainment section.


• The provincial government has made two appointments to the province’s offshore regulator, including Ed Williams — former premier Danny Williams’ brother. Natural Resources Minister Tom Marshall said both appointees are “highly qualified” for the jobs, but he also acknowledged Williams has close ties to the governing PC Party.

“I think he’s qualified, I think he’s a great appointment,” Marshall said. “Many people in the province of ability have political connections. That doesn’t mean they’re not capable and qualified to serve their province. Mr. Williams, in my view, is highly qualified.”


• The best part about waking up in the morning for Ron is that he doesn’t have to call his dealer anymore.

He starts his mornings now with reflection instead of drugs, but he’s aware that could change any day.

Ron is an addict, even though he’s been clean for a decade.


• It’s not Vancouver or Toronto, but St. John’s has ranked among the unaffordable when it comes to house prices, according to an international report.

Demographia, a public policy consulting firm, ranked more than 300 international cities, placing Vancouver as the second least affordable major city, behind Hong Kong.

    The chart above sources much of its price/income data from Demographia, however the Demographia survey is flawed. It is produced by a pro-development lobby group whose aim is to remove restrictions on residential development, so it is in their interest to overstate the cost of housing. Their data for Australia in particular has been shown to be incorrect - google 'Demographia Debunked' for more details. Demographia's income data for Australia doesn't match any official sources, and their dwelling price data is also incorrect as they omits the more affordable units/townhouses/semis/terraces from their calculations and only focus on standalone houses. Check the blog below for more details... Cheers, Liam Patterson
