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.

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.


• The Newfoundland Court of Appeal has set aside a Supreme Court of Newfoundland decision involving a Labrador man who claims he was sexually assaulted by a Catholic priest while he was a resident of a boys’ home operated by the provincial government.

The province has been found liable to the tune of $45,000 for general and aggravated damages, plus court costs. The decision was handed down on April 9, with two of the three justices involved siding with appellant Louis Rich, 49.


• The City of Mount Pearl has decided not to tie up the operation of Axtion Climb — just yet.

The climbing, sliding, jumping, bumping activity centre became the subject of a cease-and-desist order Tuesday when council said it was made aware that the business was operating without an occupancy permit.

However, Mayor Randy Simms said Thursday the owner, Ross Squires, has been co-operative and is willing to abide by the conditions the city set down in order to remain open.


• When Newfoundland Power filed its latest application regarding power costs to the Public Utilities Board (PUB), it requested a rate hike of 7.2 per cent for the average residential customer.

As it turns out, the average customer can expect to see a two per cent decrease in their rates on monthly bills coming after July 1.

The drop in rates is a combination of two things — only one in the hands of the Fortis company.
