Hey Rex Goodie Pants, it is clean power but it sure isn't cheap. We are spending billions just to close down Holyrood. You realize who will pay for that, right? Us, the ratepayers.

Pierre Neary said ''We apparently have the money for a hydro dam but not for the Dr.’s'' Nothing could be further from the truth. We don't have the money, we're going to borrow it. As for paying it back, well, the rate payers will take care of that - they're a captive audience and doubling their rates is the price of sticking it to Quebec. If that's still not enough to make the payments what odds, we'll go without doctors for a while - we'll just pass a law making it illegal to get sick. See, problem solved. Anything is possible Pierre, you just have to be proud, strong, and determined! Now, enough negativity and put a smile on your face - we got 'the deal'!!!

At the risk of being branded a traitor (I wish the Premier would give me a call, would love to be able to have the chance to debate with him), the Premier's remarks were quite ridiculous and laughable. Mr. Jones is quite correct when he says it will be the patients who pay the ultimate price. We apparently have the money for a hydro dam but not for the Dr.’s. If your life is in the balance and you can’t get in to see a specialist, the hydro dam isn’t going to help you much.

You are all a bunch of Newfoundland Lobsters. Something wonderful was announced. It has nothing to do with the doctors or any other labour dispute. Intrinisically it is a good thing. Cheap clean power and the first step towards much more power, stable electricy rates and additional income/jobs for this province. Not enough? Well you can continue to claw the other lobsters down into the pot if you want. I can't really stop you. That said... I pity you.

Nicely said, Brian. I, too, laughed out loud when Williams blamed doctors for using inflammatory language. I am astonished that reporters didn't laugh in his face.
