    First check her out and make sure no one is on board then break out a torpedo. The navies can draw straws if they like.... Canada, UK, USA, Russians, Germans, Swedes, anyone with a submarine.

    It's a Russian ship!Let the Russians come and get her.I don't understand all this nail biting over this old Russian scow.Honestly folks,don't you guys have anything more important to "biatch" about?As for old Lorraine Michels and the lefturds of the NDP ,or the Liberal party doing a better job than Conservatives if they were in charge,I say,just look to the mainland.The NDP and Libturds that were put in Charge in Ontario and several other western provinces in the past made bloody disasters of their economies.Then they put conservative governments in place,and,guess what,SUCCESS! And thems the facts!!!

    I agree with Lynda. I was on a cruise with the Orlova and she was a nice ship.

    You could have trucked her to Gambo and sank her next to the Cabin at Gambo Pond! Fadder would have had the bys from GFW and Gander in doing Diving tours on her! One Chubby Sheriff seized her and the other Skinny Sheriff could have made a dollar off her....hey ERNIE!

    Let it be a lesson for Canadians never to elect right wing parties into the government, particularly the Conservative Party of Canada. Always vote for the centrist parties like the Liberals or left wing parties like the NDP.

      Left wing, that's nuts. Our economy would hit the bottom faster than that rust bucket.

    Glad it's gone! An eye sore to the harbour front is an understatement!

    "Irresponsible" .......that's been the home-sweet-home of all our hard-earned tax dollars for several decades now. So what's with the completely fake outrage, Olivia? You're hardly a naiive rookie on Parliament Hill --- remember to recycle your tin cans and ride your bike to work.....and Thursdays is pork tenderloin in the parliamentary dining room!

      What are you whining about now? At least try to make a cohesive point. I guess Olivia just doesn't undrerstand the Newfouland mindset of "trow it back in the woods where it came from b'y."

      Sorry, James...I guess that post was obviously a bit too complex, especially for those afflicted by the cult of Jack Layton. I'll try to 'dumb it down' for you in future. You're welcome.

    Well, to the members of the opposition I say to tow it to Lake Ontario or even Vancouver Harbour and tie it up there and then see what your reaction would be. St. John's had to put up with this eyesore for too long and I am one who was glad to see it leave and really don't care what happens to it now.

    This vessel was given a vile injustice. She was restorable, given to the right owners, she would be sailing proudly today, and not floating around like a piece of garbage in the wind.

      Everyone knows the Lybova was sent out for a sinking.Costs for new fence will be aided by the docking fees where she sat tied up.Port Auth & City just didn't expect the Lybova to still be above water past Cape Race.
