    I just returned from a day of driving 9 hours return trip to perform a 30 minute repair. That's my job, so that's what I do. What's the premier's job again? I guess if she really wanted to be there, she would have, even if someone else did the driving. Just sayin'.

    Dunderdale should get one of those jet packs like the one Yves Rossy used to fly across the English Channel.

    Another example of how our province's relationship is severely strained with Ottawa; Dunderdale couldn't even call Peter McKay or the Coast Guard to hitch a chopper ride in a time of need.

  • Petty Cash Free Lunches for Premier's Office Staff

    Wouldn't it be great that every time you biught your lunch you could be reimbursed immediately from the petty cash box in the office? Just imagine your staff doung it too. Only documentation is the receipt from the building cafeteria, Tim Hortons or McDonalds. Free lunch at work is pretty good. Telegram, file a freedom of information request for petty cash expenditures and you will have a story.

    Maybe the Dunderdale Regime could purchase one of the decommissioned US presidential helicopters. A complete new stripe package with the NL flag colour to boot. They should also install a helipad in close proximity to the premier's residence. It is highly insulting that she should have to lower herself to drive on the lowly peasant roads of Newfoundland and Labrador! You know it is time for a political change when many in the governing party have truly lost touch with reality.

    What? Cancel the trip? The Premier was planning a trip to Marystown from St. John's by helicopter? How much would that cost the taxpayer? Why not do what the ordinary folk do? Get up at 3 am, hop in the car and stop at Timmy's for a coffee and a muffin and then drive to Goobies where you can take a short break before you drive along that scenic Burin Peninsula highway to Marystown. That is what I do when my helicopter is in the shop for repairs or if the weather is too bad to fly in.

    Why waste so much on a helicopter ride when a car ride is much cheaper!

    I wonder if she could have driven like the rest of us.Especially since we are told we are broke and needed to lay off over 1200 civil servants recently. ABC next election !!!!

    Imagine how she would have felt if she was on her way for a Dr's apointment, going away to work in Cowberta like so many are forced to do, or trying to make a cancer treatment apointment, like the situation she put so many residents of Rencontre East and South East Bight in twice last year for several months. Yes Cathy, bad weather grounds helicopters. Now do you understand?

    Drive ... like the rest of us mortals. Then you will see how bad the roads are.

    I wonder if she'd be willing to fly at night, even if the weather was perfect?
