A slap on the wrist for the same low life revolving door court docket clients is one of biggest problems.Criminals are not rehabilitated in HQM Penn but only hardened.So many of the same criminals get a couple months in jail only to be back breaching probaton over and over knowing full well not much if anything will be done by the justice system.It is a sad state.Come to Nfld prime time to be a criminal :(

Sounds like this is a city among other cities. No better, no worse. The bad and the good. Like the world at large. Why should it be any different? Where there is drugs today there were always lots of drink in the past. This was never a clean living kind of place if I've understood things. Not to say we should not try to improve things for those less well off but let's also rejoice about the improvement for so many people.

Excellet article. I wonder if th mayor and councillors ever walk around this city for a day. Do they ever speak to the people who voted for them? Can't they see the garbage situation is getting worse and cleaning up George Street is not going to fix it the massive garbage problem we have here. Where are the lines on the streets, it's almost May and nothing has been completed on this yet. Everyone I know is afraid to walk at night by themselves, there is no police presence. I fear because of the huge salaries we are paying for workers in this city, there is no money left for the essentials.

Pam, Good article, and far more insightful than Tilley's "rah rah vote for me" pitch. Oh, and it doesn't take much for the jealous baymen to come out of hiding does it. Even they don't want to live in the outports.

Maybe offering townies $250,000 to move to an outport of their choice would solve all these problems.

Just wondering why you don't publish Trevor Taylor's article online? I have read a couple of his pieces and he has hit the nail on the head. Give us a chance to be able to comment on that too.
