I wonder how many governement ministers there have been since Earl McCurdy has been head of FFAW? Now that might be something constructive for the reporters to find out. I hope Darin King sticks to his guns. I have no involvement in the fishery, however i do live in Rural NL and follow the news. I am just sick and tired of everyone bowing to McCurdy and the FFAW. Time for us as a province to stick up and say enough is enough.

Funny thing though...through all the turmoil, through all the layoffs, through all the devestation in the fishery there has been one constant...Earl Mcurdy, and the FFAW. Everything else has changed..there have been Liberal governments, PC governments, both here, and in Ottawa, many differents ministers, both here and in ottawa..yet the only thing that hasn't changed is Earl and the Union...Hmmm could it be possible that a change might be needed there? Could that be at all a remote possibility?? No, of course not. It's fine to have one union own fishing fleets, it's fine for one union to represent both plant workers and fishers, it's fine for Earl to consatntly play games with every administration we have, and always come out on top. So it simply can't be Earl or the FFAW, now could it Bob?

This government are a bunch of school boy/ girl amateurs, elected and riding on the coat tails of Danny Williams. Bunch of opportunists Danny put in who hopped on his celeb status bandwagon, at the time. They won't last long. Already time for a new gov and they haven't even ruled or worked yet.. F/T Twitter jobs it seems . Must be nice. At least they can afford their utility bills. But not for long hopefully.

I didnt see Danny's name anywhere on a ballot during this election! The people had a chance to choose who they wanted in their districts. They did just that. And i am sure the alternative opposition looks like a bright bunch! Take Jim Bennett, Randy Edmunds, Dale Kirby, Gerry Rogers, or Chris Mitchelmore...oh yeah they will run the province alright. Get real!! Maybe some of the reporters in the province should have had their names on the ballot in October. Because apparently some of them have all the answers!
