The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.
Tuesday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Family section.
• The president of the Newfoundland and Labrador Private Operators Association says the provincial government has led the workers he represents “down the garden path” on negotiations for a new contract.
Wade Smith, a paramedic who runs Smith’s Ambulance Service out of Whitbourne, says that according to the terms of the last contract the Newfoundland and Labrador Private Ambulance Operators Association (NLPOA) signed with the province, meaningful negotiations are supposed to begin 180 days prior to the termination of the most recent contract.
In this case, negotiations should have started in late 2011. Operators have been working without a contract since April 2012.
• Welder Joanne Walsh-Flynn was in her first year with the Cahill Group of Companies when the Tories took over the provincial leadership.
She is now a 10-year veteran of Metal World and was central to a steel-cutting ceremony — like a ribbon-cutting ceremony — held Monday at the company’s facility on Torbay Road in St. John’s.
Metal World is a Cahill company, and the steel cutting was to recognize the start of construction on the living quarters for the topsides of Hebron — the province’s next big oil development.
• A critic of the Lower Churchill project has issued a new report online, claiming a key piece of land at the site of the Muskrat Falls hydro project is unstable and may slide into the Churchill River — destroying the multibillion-dollar development.
Cabot Martin calls the North Spur, as the piece of land is known, “the weak link in Nalcor’s Muskrat Falls project.”
