    Jackie Logans: Quebecers do not recognize Newfoundland sovereignty over Labrador; that's the crux of the passionate antagonism ....

    I don't think that is the case at all, I think we can safely say that this is an issue more with folk in Newfoundland than it is in Quebec, or for that matter Labrador as well. The border as is has been settled between Newfoundland and CANADA, not Quebec since at least 1927. It has also been reaffirmed in 1949. Even Danny Williams has said it is not an issue. Various governments in Quebec have said the same thing. That is a non issue, especially in Labrador. If they were so desirous/covetous of Labrador you'd think they would have purchased it on the occasions when it was offered up for sale.
    As far as the the original Churchill Falls deal goes, of course it is a pretty bad deal. In general Labradorians see that they've been shafted by their own government and under present Hydro plans they are about to be shafted again. Remember, Nfld has not actually lost anything here - they've simply not gained as much as they could have if they'd signed a better deal.

    Hello Jackie , I moved back to this province from Comox . I guess we will have to agree to disagree on Williams' ability to do what is best for this province . I guess the old saying is true , you have to be there , or a least here ......

    Enemy #1 in Newfoundland has always been Quebec -- and with good reason. Quebecers do not recognize Newfoundland sovereignty over Labrador; that's the crux of the passionate antagonism between these two bitter neighbours.

    The tenth province was totally shafted by La Belle province vis-a-vis Churchill Falls, and until this unconscionable injustice is rectified, normal relations cannot be expected between Quebec and Newfoundland/Labrador.

    Danny Williams gets my vote for standing up for fair treatment regarding his dealings over hydro developments in Labrador.

    Hey, we elected a guy who's big skill is tirades. He doesn't sing or dance...his thing is tirades, and his ego has swollen to the point where they start at the drop of a pin.

    So forget the discussion. There's no point.
