I go to school with Cherish and have known her for a few years. We dont really hang out because we arent exactly in the same group. She is great. She is always so enthusiastic and hard working. When she came back after her long ordeal, we could all see that her face seemed a lot puffier than before, however I am extremely proud to say that none of us judged or made fun of her. We all realized that she had gone through a lot and that she had no control over the water retention. From where I stand, it looks like everyone was really supportive and tried to helpful to her. We are in classes together and from what I can tell she is doing much better.

Lower Churchill Project construction September 23, 2014

The Telegram accepted an offer from Nalcor Energy for a three-day tour of a collection of Lower Churchill Project work sites in Labrador beginning Monday , Sept. 15, 2014. A single reporter was sent. The costs for the tour were covered by the Crown corporation, with the exception of a single night’s hotel stay and a breakfast. The total cost is not yet available. The paper viewed the tour as an opportunity to connect directly with individual project managers rarely heard from to date, as well as more people working on the project.

Using interviews and discussions from the tour, The Telegram offers a five-part series providing an overview and update on the province's controversial $6.99-billion power project, with a look at related topics including: project logistics, camp life and worker safety.
