Tuesday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Arts & Entertainment section.

• Former premier Danny Williams is being sued by a contractor for a million dollars over unpaid work done on a new house. But Williams says he terminated the contractor's services because of lengthy delays and cost overruns. He's launching a counterclaim.

• A new Angus Reid public opinion poll has put Premier Kathy Dunderdale in a tie with British Columbia's Liberal Premier, Christy Clark, for the provincial leader with the lowest approval rating in the country. Both leaders received a rating of 25 per cent, with 73 per cent disapproving of Dunderdale and three per cent saying they were unsure.

• More than a year later, and at a cost of more than $2 million, a problem discovered at the Riverhead regional wastewater plant in St. John's has been fixed.

Following city council's meeting Monday, Coun. Tom Hann said the task of putting a new liner in a digester tank was completed last week after problems were discovered in December 2011.

  • Who is going to keep a vigilant eye on cost over-runs on the Muskrat Falls Project?

    This article states that "Former premier Danny Williams is being sued by a contractor for a million dollars over unpaid work done on a new house. And the article states that Williams says he terminated the contractor's services because of lengthy delays and cost overruns." It is wonderful to see an individual being able to look after their own affairs to make sure that they are not over-charged because of "cost-overruns and "lengthy delays", but who is going to guard against any "cost-overruns" " that we are promised will occur on the Muskrat Falls Contract that Mr.Williams initiated, and the hydro-consumers of Newfoundland and Labrador will be on the hook for paying? I hope Mr. Williams will be keeping a close an eye on the Muskrat Falls Contract contract as well, and so must every other Newfoundlander and Labradorian be vigilant, to the best of their knowledge, in order to keep the costs in check.
