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.
• A man who said he was the victim of a violent robbery admitted Thursday that he was going to lie on the stand in exchange for drugs or money.
Duane Andrews — who was stabbed and robbed in an incident that reportedly happened last fall — testified that he was going to conspire to help the two men accused of the crime go free.
• Blogger and failed politician Brad Cabana got his day in court Thursday in his quest to shut down the Muskrat Falls project — and he’ll get another day in court today, too.
Cabana is arguing that certain aspects of the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric development violate his constitutional rights; he spent Thursday afternoon cross-examining Newfoundland government assistant deputy minister Aubrey Gover, trying to get answers to support his case.
• The federal fisheries minister was in St. John’s Thursday to announce plans for a new search and rescue lifeboat station for the Canadian Coast Guard in Burin.
Due to replace an older station already located in Burin, the site will also include a new dock. It is valued at $6.6 million, and construction is scheduled to begin in the spring. The government expects the new facility will be ready to open in 2015.
“It’s very important for the region and very important as a lifeboat station, and important not only to the coast guard, but to our auxillary members as well,” said Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield.
