With all due respect to some negative comments and concerns about the Muskrat Fall Project as if it is going to happen tomorrow, I think we should look a little farthur ahead witha vision to about 30 to 50 years and start the project immediately to bring future benifits and prosperity to all of our decendants. Regardless of the government we elect now and in the near future, this project has to go ahead because not only Newfoundland but all provinces of Canada will be richer and more independant economically. We should look ahead with vision, remembering that the lack of vision that resulted in "giving away" Churchill Falls Churchhill Falls.

I doubt very much if anyone in Newfoundland believes a word Mr. Harper says. How could they?

Like him or hate him, Stephen harper made a firm committment on the Lower Churchill first and now Ignatieff is saying "Maybe, me too!" That is not leadership, that is playing Follow the Leader. harper screwed NL on offshore Oil royalties, Ignatieff siad is was bad, unfair and targtetted but will not commit to undoing what Harper did. That is not leadership, that is only Talk is Cheap.

Federal Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff (left) and Avalon riding Liberal incumbent Scott Andrews (right) share a laugh with customers at a Tim Hortons coffee shop in C.B.S. Tuesday morning. ATTENTION FABIO!!! Read the above caption!!!! It says clearly that Mr Ignatieff is with INCUMBENT Scott Andrews. Please take down your ridiculous RE Elect Fabian Manning signs!! You are NOT the incumbent!! You are just COCKY!!!

I was wondering what happened to Mr. Ignatieffs plans for the senior citizens? It appears that he is so preoccuppied with tripping Mr. Harper up in his political games. However, it appears that there is already a "Trudeau Fever" across this country as good Liberals feel we are in for another disappointment this time around. The Liberal platform is puffing at the seams with NDP and Bloc goals and PC promises!

Sounds like Ignatieff is saying he'll support the project with a loan guarantee, but only if NL does a deal with Quebec. To me, it doesn't seem like he supports the undersea link between NL and NS...

It was hilarious to look at Yvonne's face with Iggy saying over and over...Muskrat falls will happen. She just spent the last two weeks in the house telling us how bad the deal is. What an idiot.

Did any of the impartial, non-partisan journalists ask Ignatief about his CO2 cap and trade plan found on page 46 of the liberal red book 2011 and what this emissions tax would mean to Canadians' pocketbooks? I gave the heads up on Monday in the Teley editorial. Will it cost us more for energy, goods and services and what are the overall benefits? Economists have pegged the carbon tax at 30 billion a year. Who will pay and who benefits from this tax grab? Anybody? The national media will not discuss this carbon cap and trade plan. We hear all about the 40 billion over 30 years for fighter jets, but nothing about a trillion dollar carbon tax grab over the same timeframe. Its obvious the Telegram and other media outlets never met a Conservative they didn't HATE, but this goes beyond cheering for a horse in a race to keep it close to sell more ad revenue by keeping the eyeballs on the page or screen. Talk about a fluffed article. Cowards. And before anyone starts assuming that I'm some CPC operative or supporter go get stuffed. Last time I voted Tory was back in 88, Joe Price Burin St. Georges.

Michael Ignatieff is all for co-operation. He has voted in favour of Stephen Harper's legislation in the House of Commons more than 100 times.

'...But Ignatieff said he’s confident “the numbers will add up.” " Sounds like alright. Somewhere around 14.3 cents per kwh for Nfld. Somewhere around 10 cents per khw, or less, for NS. And that's only if this project is on schedule and within current budget. Good luck with that. OH, and of course Labradorians won't have to worry about that (will they?), considering that there are no plans for them to get any. Oh, and thanks, again.
