Some time before, I needed to buy a good car for my firm but I didn't earn enough money and could not buy anything. Thank God my friend proposed to get the home loans at trustworthy bank. Thus, I acted so and was satisfied with my short term loan.

Moose class-action November 12, 2014

There's an ongoing debate about the damage and injury done in this province when vehicles strike moose on the roads and highways. Why is this happening? How can the damage be reduced? Who is to blame?

The Telegram continues to follow the story.

Remembrance Day 2014 November 11, 2014

There are so many stories Telegram and other TC Media reporters, editors and photographers have published over the years of how war has affected the province and its people. From those who fell on battlefields, those who returned injured and scarred physically and mentally, those who were held in prisoner of war camps, to those who risked their lives to keep the supply lines going, to those who nursed injured soldiers back to health, and to those who worried and waited for word. From the First World WAr to the war in Afghanistan, on the sea, over land and in the air, so many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have served and sacrificed for freedom and democracy. We continue to publish stories our staff uncover in honour of Remembrance Day, and offer this collection to help us all keep in mind the importance of Remembrance Day.
