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.
• More than 800 people in the St. John’s area were recently asked who they’d pick as their deputy mayor in the September election, but the man behind the poll isn’t saying who they chose. However, Ron Ellsworth, who unsuccessfully ran for mayor in the 2009 election, said Thursday he’s encouraged by the results.
“I’m leaning towards running for deputy mayor,” he said.
• A St. John’s polling firm caused ripples in the political world Tuesday when it released some polling data that shows the governing PC Party and the NDP in a statistical dead heat.
As part of the Board of Trade business development summit Thursday, MQO research said the PCs are rebounding after a bad six months. According to the poll, the Progressive Conservatives can count on support from 36 per cent of decided voters — one point ahead of the NDP, which has 35 per cent of decided voters’ support.
• No longer adrift in the North Atlantic, it’s still unclear exactly where the derelict cruise ship Lyubov Orlova will end up.
The ship is under tow by an offshore supply vessel and is now more than 130 km north of the SeaRose, Husky Energy’s offshore production vessel. But Transport Canada isn’t saying where the aged cruise ship will end up.
