The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.
Thursday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Community section.
• Labrador Innu leaders have decided to disobey the provincial ban on hunting the George River caribou herd. Both Innu Nation Grand Chief Prote Poker and Mushuau Innu band council Chief Simeon Tshakapesh say they will allow 300 male caribou to be hunted between the two communities.
“We will make tags for ourselves,” says Poker. “We’re aware that we may be prosecuted, (but) what we’re doing is conservation and we’re also looking at our culture as well.”
• Mary Payne remains convinced her teenage son, Jeffrey, was murdered, despite an autopsy report that says he died of a drug overdose.
“My son was murdered. No investigation was done by the cops,” said the west end St. John’s mother.
• Even in the face of a $725-million deficit, all three political parties in the province seem to agree that all-day kindergarten is probably worth the added expense. How much it will cost is another thing.
The NDP estimates it’ll cost between $20 million-$24 million for operating costs, but that doesn’t include the cost of building new classrooms to handle the increase in kindergarten classes. Both the Liberals and the NDP have said if they were in government, they’d bring in all-day kindergarten.
Education Minister Clyde Jackman said it’s more complicated than that.
