Mayor Hogan and his Council should be happy that the work is being done and the province and the rest of us taxpayers are footing the bill to have the bridge done. He should not bite the hand that feeds him.

Somebody comes to your house, renovate your kitchen and bathroom for you for free and you start demanding money from that person to fix your house. What kind of twisted logic is that?

These permit fees are required everywhere else in Newfoundland and everywhere else in Canada. Why all of a sudden is it an issue? The answer is because in their minds its little old Placentia; a small bay municipality with small bay minds. HJ O'Connell is a big company and surely has faced this before, as has transportation and works. Frankly if a permit is not paid, its taking advantage of another small town. Its just not right. If you are not going to pay your fees, as you would everywhere else, then go to another gullible small town that will give you a free ride.

Hogan is an idiot. The Province foots the 40.5 million dollar project and now Hogan wants them to pay $400,000 for permission to do so. This man (Hogan) is at least four sandwiches short of a banquet. I say to the Province, "Ignore this fool and soldier on."

I say pull out let the town do the work on a 60-40, the prov. giving the town 60 percent,. Let them do the work and then it will be to their satisfaction, enough is enough if the govt gives in then they will have to pay every town when govt work takes place. This is the main hwy as is any other bridge in any other community or road etc. PULL OUT let them build their own bridge. There is another way to get around the Hr if there is no bridge then there will be no obstruction to boats.

Why is government putting up with this idiocy. This seems to be more about cheap publicity for the Placentia council and its Mayor Hogan than getting valuable infrastructure for the town. Of course, the Telegram is always willing to accommodate this clown.
