The fact that Harper has guaranteed a cabinet seat to some one who is under investigation for election fraud says it all.

jay i believe there is a third name on the ballot.. jay if mr. phelan wrote the truth about peter penashua then whats the problem?? if mr . penashua did anything to benefit Newfoundland or Labrador i'm still waiting to hear about it. was mr penashua sitting in his warm comfortable seat when Burton Winters was alone on the Labrador ice for 2 nights and days and froze to death??

To Harold, Duh! I know there's a third name on the ballot. Maybe he's the one Labradorians should vote for, he seems to be the most honest. I didn't suggest anyone should vote for Penashue. My point is that we have to stop voting for untrustworthy individuals, or we'll continue to get unsatisfactory representation, regardless of the party. Go ahead and support Jones if you want, but read the post before you shoot off.

You trust the wisdom of the people of Labrador!. If only wisdom of the voters mattered, would we now be saddled with the Dunderdale government? 60 percent of nflders still support Muskrat Falls. Are these the wise ones? Wisdom comes from knowledge, and then acting on it. What is more abundant here, knowledge and wisdom or ignorance, apathy and indifference?

We all know about Penashue, but are you forgetting that Jones double billed the provincial government for over $12,000.00 from her constituency allowance, and had to pay it back. You could have written a decent article about all politicians in all parties needing to be more accountable and less entitled. Instead you took the cheap, easy route and dove into partisan politics. Unfortunately, voters get what they deserve. When we wallow in the gutter of partisan politics, we usually lose. Jones will win this district, it is a safe Liberal seat, and only Todd Russell could have lost it for the Liberals in the first place. However,don't be surprised if you don't get a highly ethical person to replace Penahue.
