As a Newfoundlander that moved away to Ontario shortly after highschool, I really do believe that things can be turned around back home. Everyone always sees the grass greener elsewhere. As a small business owner I'd love to open up an expansion store back home. I could get most of my ingredients for a similar price, but shipping in the things not readily available would be costly. As a proud newfoundlander I'd like to think I would go for it. As a business owner, I would need to do my due dillegance. I don't know the answers, and I've been away long enough to forget the problems. And I'm not without bias, I'm related to John. He's a good man. Whoever leads our province in the coming years needs to remember one thing: There is a contingent of Newfoundlanders out there waiting for a good reason to come home.

What do you mean "fix the economy"? It was only last year that we were told that we are all living in a time of unprecedented prosperity! What manufacturer can possibly afford to stay here when electricity prices are about to go through the roof???

Randy, Please explain to me and the reading " Audience " , How are they going to diversify our economy? All you have to do is look at their back round, Lets take the mill in Grand Falls, That plant should be up and running and producing just over 100 million dollars of products per year, we ship in, then you got the pallet on the Northern Pen, just sitting there, this plant should also be up and running, not only producing pallet, but along with three more items. Like Jackson's Arm and Marystown fish plants, just sitting, those two locations, also should be in operation. Now lets take Harbour Grace, there no need for this building, after Terra Nova Shoes move out, to be left there, and becoming a eye sore. Now its time to show leadership, from Pc's - Liberal - NDP. after all you got the Liberal going around and telling the people, Their going to " Diversify " economy, so far nothing. Randy we " Continues " to make the same mistake, we don't elects people of knowledge, But by the clothing they may be wearing at the time. That why our economy can't grow.
