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.

Monday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Sports  section.


• Talks between the St. John’s International Airport Authority and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) have once again broken off, with each side claiming the other has shown an inflexibility in negotiations.

The federal mediator trying to find common ground between the two sides announced Friday he would not bring them back to the bargaining table for the time being. According to the union, this comes after a five-day recess preceeded by five days of negotiations. Both sides agreed to a media blackout during negotiations.


• Fog wreaked havoc on flights coming to and from St. John’s during the weekend, cancelling numerous arrivals and departures.

Marie Manning, director of marketing and community relations with the local airport authority, said smaller aircraft were managing to land at the airport, but that was not the case for larger ones.

And according the authority, the low visibility is forecasted to last until at least this morning.


• The waitlist for high-demand chronic pain services in St. John’s is anywhere from four to eight months, according to Eastern Health.

Sonya Martin-Drake of Mount Pearl told The Telegram last week she has to travel to Clarenville regularly for chronic pain treatments because it’s unavailable to her in St. John’s.

Chronic pain services are offered by some, but not all, of the anesthetists working for Eastern Health. Services are offered at the Health Sciences Centre, St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital, Dr. L.A. Miller Centre, Dr. G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital and Carbonear General Hospital. According to Eastern Health, at the Health Sciences Centre, the wait is six to eight months; St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital, four months; and Dr. L.A. Miller Centre, seven months.
