I'm not happy about the all day kindergarten, has anyone read what it cost the Province of Ontario and the studies are showing it does not improve knowledge for children but acts as an all day care centre for parents. With the huge overruns Muskrat Falls is going to cost taxpayers and now this, where is the money coming from - the immigrants she is going to encourage to live here?

Cathy Bennett has no Liberal caucus support. Provincial Liberals gave up on Siobhan Coady years ago. These 2 facts added together are additional hurdles I doubt Bennett can overcome. It will take a lot more than the has-been Coady and the St. John's Board of Trade to win the leadership.

Her blind support for Muskrat Falls (as blind as everyone else's, given that no data or contracts or agreements or forecasts have ever been made available to anyone outside government) is a great insight into her immense "business" acumen.

She has a fire in her belly? Funny choice of words considering she is the McDonalds Queen, and is resposible for giving the everyone else a fire in their belly...and other areas..... Zing! Seriously though...shameless power grab...

Well, I guess it's political progress of some kind....we've at least gone from electing school teachers as premiers to at people with some degree of exposure to the real world. But these first few "Titans of Commerce" are pretty thin soup. Danny was one of a dozen or so people in the province who stumbled upon cable TV company ownership, and simply rode that "golden goose on auto-pilot" to great riches by being bought out by another, bigger, more ambitious company...."Way to be!" realty is the perfect compliment for that one. Now, Ms. Bennett is being touted as yet another "Newfoundland business giant". Her entrepreneurial gamble? Buying McDonalds restaurants. Automated, turnkey businesses that cost as much as they do to purchase simply because of their guarantee of success. The most commerce-challenged people on Earth can become McDonalds millionaires...just keep the place clean, and follow the manual from head office. Seriously, this is hardly the entire substance of a worthwhile resume of someone running for high office. Well, it isn't anywhere else in Canada at least. In Newfoundland, it's awe-inspiring.

Yes, that's often true. Anything to add related to the topic, or does your post simply serve as proof of its 'point'?

An endorsement by Siobhan Coady will cost Cathy Bennett votes, not gain them. Coady was voted out of office after 2 years by many thousands of votes.

Dwight Ball and Lorraine Michael have both promised to repeal Bill 29 if either of them becomes premier. What about Cathy Bennett?
