    It is said that two wrongs do not make a right.

    Courting this company, or others like it, will not solve the expropriation problems.

    Because Kathy Dunderdale has fooled Newfoundlanders and Labradorians with her incompetence, not once, but twice, its time for Danny Williams to fire her as Natural Resources Minister.

    In many companies, if an employee with numerous careless mistakes the way Kathy Blunderdale Dunderdale makes, he/she will be fired for gross incompetence.

    In order to restore public confidence in our provincial representatives and leaders, perhaps now is the time for Danny Williams to give Kathy Blunderdale Dunderdale the boot and replace her with a more competent minister who will not fool Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.

    Believe me, as long as Kathy Dunderdale is Natural Resources minister, she will continue to hurt Newfoundlanders outside the Avalon Peninsula, particularly the Exploits Valley area.

    In an unrelated matter, I'm surprised that Kruger, Corner Brook Pulp and Paper owners, have no interest in the mill. They would be excellent owners for this mill, and maybe bring much needed manufacturing jobs to Exploits Valley region and all of Central Newfoundland.

    Let me sum up what's coming right off the bat, because for a lot of commenters who post here the provincial government can do no right...

    No doubt, we'll get this: ''Kathy Blunderdale'' made too much mention of what was going on with regards to the interest of the German company and therefore ''bungled'' the possible sale of the mill.

    Of course, had she said nothing the government would be uncaring and passive, and eventually when something was revealed some time down the road it would be called another move by ''Dictator Danny'' to ram something down the people's throats.

    Danny's lead puppet, Dunderdale, was on the news laying the blame for the possible reopening of the GFW mill solely on the opposition, for FORCING them to release information on the German interest in the mill. Now can anyone seriously believe that Danny Williams releases any information because the Liberals forced him to. The information was released for one of two reasons, first, to ease the negative pressure of the whole expropriation fiasco, which I doubt. The second reason was probably to do exactly what the interested company accused them of, to seriously breach confidentially so that they would walk away from the possible deal, and that way Danny could keep sending CENTRAL's wood to Corner Brook and not have to share CENTRAL'S hydro production money with a new company that wants to bring a new hope to the region. He don't want the mill restarted, or it would have been a done deal long ago, and if there was ever another possibility of more interest in restarting it, he would have his puppets put an end to it and again lay blame on the bullying tactics of the opposition. I don't know about the rest of NL, but I'm pretty sure that Central won't be so quick to reelect the three invisible MHA's next year...

    Smoke and mirrors from the very beginning to distract from the real issue: the bungled expropriation by a hotheaded Premier and his foolish lieutenant Stunder-Blunderdale that will cost upwards of $1 000 000 000.

    OOOOO, if only Yvonne was in charge all would be right. According to Yvonne, and her many loyal followers, if they were running the place there would ten paper mills going full tilt, and there would be a fish plant in every rural community, every road would be paved, and we would have so many nurses and doctors that we wouldn't know what to do with them all. Yes, if only Yvonne was in charge, she has all the answers, just like the dummies who posted above, they have all the answers...give me a break.

    Another monumental blunder by Due Dillegence Dunderdale and Little Man Dan's cast of idiots. Lets contact Webster's dictionary and request a replacement of the word blunder, with dunder; as in dale!

    There is a wise old saying - Loose Lips Sinks Ships! Obviously Minister Dunderdale has a long way to go in developing any business/negotiating skills, to add insult to injury, all of this for a couple moments of glory in the House of Assembly. A deal is never a deal until the ink is dry!
