    This government just spent 1 million dollars for a drill rig sitting on a barge in st Antony for a week doing nothing. How many more will have to die before they fence the whole island. This government wants to lien it's pockets with money and cares nothing about its people. Here a young man dies for a dumb animal who should be hunted and killed by all who enjoy the meal but if r your caught poaching your fined. Makes no sense tell the mother of that young man why this island isn't fenced and why we can afford billion dollar projects this government makes me sick there as bad or worst then the Harper gov. We need to stand up for our rights and take back from this excuse of a gov what is rightfully ours

      So sorry for this family's loss. PLEASE people, email your MHA wherever you are in NL and demand the MHA address this menace on our roadways. Ask government to at least clear back the trees and brush. MHAs are in government to help people first, not animals.
