I am a former PC party supporter but I can't support the party any more with Dunderdale at the helm. She is a bad leader whose has made many bad decisions that have not helped ordinary people but hurt them terribly. I will not vote PC again for a very long time. I look forward the day this PC government is nothing more than a bad memory.

Well as far as i am concerned she's as good as anybody else i see around. Just wish people would give her a chance.

PC all the way! Dunderdale know what this province needs and it isnt the ungratefull people who all take.

Kev...Out of touch with people in the province...you have got to be kidding!! One cannot go to the washroom now without it being on twitter or facebook. People are more intuned with things now than they have ever been. Things are pretty good here in the province...be careful what you wish for.

She got to remember that it was the polls that gave her job. Now her or her sorry excuse for a government have already said that they WON'T apologize for making the big tough decisions to slash, cut and burn. But it also means they she hasn't take responsibility for making poor decisions that put us into the position for drastic cuts and layoff's. The premier is putting all her confidence into Ross Reid getting them all re-elected, but unlike Ross, I don't think that the people are all as gullible as we were four years ago.

Never in NL history has there been a gov't so out of touch with public opinion. They deserve to lose every seat.

DUH! What would you expect. It was a PC convention. Tow the party line folks, tow the party line.

Like RATTER01 said, it is a PC convention. Dissent and debate is not encourage or expected at these functions. I was a PC party member for many years... very involved in campaigns since 1993, but didn't participate in the last election campaign, because I didn't have any faith in Dunderdale's leadership abilities, or with the rationale behind the Muskrat Falls project. Reality is, there are many PCs who completely disagree with the curent leadership and strategy... and they went nowhere near Gander this weekend. I see a lot of empty seats in the pics... I remember when that session was standing room only... and that wasn't all that long ago.

For all you naysayers...do you see a better alternative? I travel around the province and things have never been better.

Around the Avalon things aren't as bad as it could be but in most towns the govt. could be doing a better job for sure. There is way too much neglect for my liking. I know that lots of money goes to the government but what I see is a lot of it being sent in the wrong direction. You shouldn't neglect other aspects of our economy just because there is oil money. Imagine if tourism, the fishery, forestry, small business, etc... were working at their full potential. Neglect of these industries will leave us worse off in the long run.

This townie will be voting PC again. The alternatives are terrible.

Right on Right Wild.......I have always voted PC, but like a lot of people, I have been re-thinking things......but when I look at the state of NL and Lab, and then look at the alternatives, it is PC all the way again for this townie too.....can you imagine if by some disaster that Loraine Michael got elected..? Those union hugging creeps would give it all to the unions, put all small business out of business with a neck-breaking minimum wages....and the liberals are just hoping to ride a tide...but really, people's memories are just so short...does anyone not remember the liberal years..??...Clyde lied...Tobin and the nurses..??....anyway, it is just amazing....but one thing you cannot deny or cover up, the province has never been in better shape, and I know you creeps will say it was just the oil, and yes it is the oil, but also the management of that....liberals would have sold the shop, the ndp would have their heads in the sand, but the PCs gave the province an ownership stake in the oil, and what a great investment....so people, look around before you decide on who is best for government.

What kind of smoke are you guys on anyway? Geeeez.
- September 23, 2013 - 07:55
Looks like there were lots of empty seats too

This entire crew is out to lunch. Entirely out of touch with reality. I am embarassed for Dunderdale after reading this article. Who retires next? Kennedy?

All the information she's getting out is nothing more than PC propaganda, anything requested thru our so called Freedom of Information Act is either turned down or released with half of it redacted. Poor buggers are whistlin' in the dark.

Sheehan says "We have to kind of utilize our district associations a little bit more in terms of getting our message out to them so they can disseminate it around the communities" May I suggest that if the party would use the district associations to get the peoples message to the party then the polls might reflect differently. As it stands right now the PC party appears to be out of touch with the voters not because we don't understand what they are doing, but because they don't understand what we know needs to be done.

Great! Glad they all agree with each other. Now lets take everyone of them and stick them on lets say Kellys Island. They can live out there days there agreeing with eachother.
