I heard a story like this about 53 years ago where one politician who won an election didn't like the other politicians project. Except it was about a very special aircraft called the Avro Arrow. Are we seeing history repeat its self? One can only hope not.

Ms. Bennett's declaration to take on the Premier in her district was a gutsy move. Might not be enough to move her ahead of Mr. Ball but a gutsy move all the same.

Nova Scotia shafted Newfoundland and Labrador right from the beginning in 1949. According to one very well versed person I heard on VOCM a few years ago who divulged to the audience that Nova Scotia had an office set up right next door to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador during the negotiations of the Terms of Union in 1948. He said Nova Scotia was not about to let Newfoundland and Labrador have control over the vast fish resource that was contained in the large expanse of Ocean that the province of NL was bringing into Canada. To this very day Nova Scotia has the lion's say over the say in the fishery with most of the administrative jobs centered in that province that are outside of Ottawa. There were other matters that Nova Scotia interfered in as well such as Agriculture.

Mr. Jones, here'e a little bit of insider information for you...we live on an island! While NS has access to the national grid, and purchase power from several sources, we cannot...we must provide for ourselves. The other utilities are not going to build a link to sell their power into this province. NL, like many other provinces regulate who can put power onto our grid. The reason is to keep fly by nighters from putting unreliable, uncontrollable power on the grid. Keep up the tirades...nothing like reading a mainlanders thoughts in a quebec owned newspaper....
