Whether or not people support or do not support the PC party, one thing's for sure...Premier Dunderdale is NOT a "Quitter". And since WHEN do we, in today's society, ENCOURAGE "Quitting"?? Yes, the PCs have slipped badly, but a lot can still happen between now & October 2015. Ah, but y'know, it's real easy these days to kick people when they're down...right Mr. Wangersky?

Russell has called for Dunderdale to go but Muskrat Falls to continue!

wicked talk about slanted negative column; I'd say this worst low ball tactic I have ever seen; not in history of this province have we seen the like of this; funny never read this type of stuff when wells; tobin and grimes running this place; and they ran place into the ground and into near bankruptcy; from 5 bil; to over 12 bill in little less than 13 years; but I guess they never crossed poor Russell; in his quest to get a story; he must have forgot the king clyde wells days of "OH SAID THAT; WHO ARE THE PEOPLE WHO SAY''; funny how time erased his memory; wicked rotten stuff; and of course Tobin never kicked AG out of the house assembly; and clamped down on all access to minsters and information; NO; of course not......must have been a dreamy time for journalists the years from 1989 to 2003......

Mr Editor...thanks for saying it out loud...without saying where I am philosophically or politically, I, too, have recognized this fact quite a while ago...I agree that she had big shoes to fill, and some tough moves to make, but really PC's, the only reason the numbers aren't worse now or why the numbers didn't get this low a year ago, has been lack of 'competition' (from the other parties maybe, but definitely in the 'leadership' department) - there is a dearth of leaders so far, so there's a pent-up demand for one, in any party, and now is the time for the first party to show that and produce that will most likely win the 2015 provincial election

I see Wangersky is filling in for the Liberals again, as he has done a few times on On Point! And last time I checked a government is elected for 4 years, not when the media thinks they should be replaced. Oh yeah and it also looks like Russell might have a problem with a woman at the helm! To me Dunderdale has been given a rough ride by the media. So much for media being fair to all parties! Hopefully we will see Wangersky's name on a ballot in 2015. Well at least we know what party he will be running for!

This is well written and it looks like the reporter is listening to the people and certainly this government is not.

Ignore the public bravado from ministers like O'Brien and Marshall - and Dunderdale's own insistence that she isn't going anywhere. The sharks are circling! She will slowly, but inevitably, accept the near unanimous pubic message that she must go. As I have commented previously, her going now won't save her party from defeat at the polls - but could well save it from extinction. There is one point on which I disagree with Wangersky. That is his reference to her successes. Frankly I am at a loss to know what they are - and Wangersky himself offers little elaboration. The distinction of first female premier is her personal achievement but not , of course, an achievement of her administration. For those of use who had looked forward to seeing a woman premier, the results are terribly disappointing. Rather than serve as a beacon for other women, she has become the poster-girl for bad leadership of either sex. Particularly sad when you consider that no premier in our history arrived in office with such economic prosperity and fiscal flexibility on which she could have built. But if you're one of the few who likes how this lady operates, don't despair for he future. Big business owes her big time. She will undoubtedly find a comfortable spot for a soft landing.

Nobody could have said it better. But I hope their arrogance continues so the PC's will be buried altogether.
- September 12, 2013 - 16:55
Maybe the PC party will FOLD after 2015, would you prefer it that way?? Anything to dissolve the PC party once & for all. Then the Liberals & NDP WON'T have anyone to criticize, so they have to...turn on EACH OTHER.....

Well written, but Russell misses two key points. First, were the Premier to resign now, it would trigger an immediate Provincial Election. This is something the PCs can hardly afford right night now. Watch for a dignified exit, as requested, in October of 2014, when such an election would not be triggered. Second, could *anyone* have taken Danny's place without a certain amount of this backlash? No one could live up to that. Was KD doomed from the start?
