    No opening of the legislative assembly until the spring????Kathy is already showing that she is a mere fledgling from the Harper nest. Watch for feminine dictatorship of the highest degree!!!

    Hey, "Newsey Batch", Jones is far from alone in voicing concerns about Muskrat Falls. There are hundreds of outspoken critics, including two Tory Stalwarts: Cabot martin and Dr. John Collins. They have expressed their opposition with clearly-stated, solid arguments. I have tried to do the same in my blog item, which you can find elsewhere on The Telegram's site.

    In saying: "the immensely foolhardy Muskrat Falls debt/development" Jones is letting personal biases get in the way of reality and misleading the public. The Environmental panel simply asked for more analysis, the review from NAVAGANT said it was a good move, the Liberals say its bad, the PC's say good and the NDP say they need more information before they'd agree to it. If none of these people, who are no doubt far more informed than Brian Jones, can reach agreement merits of the project what gives Jones the all knowing ability to condemn it?

      NAVAGANT review? That's as phoney as convincing voters the $15,000.00 cheque for the community firetruck actually paid for the firetruck. (P.S. NEWSY, the people raised most of the money themselves. But don't tell 'em that). Actually NAVIGANT was a whole lot worse.

    Once again, Jones is tossing rhetorical turds at the PCs (calling them "foolhardy", "arrogant" and "political dirt"), without offering even one single substantive reason. He is obviously too blinded and apoplectic with partisan hate to make any actual argument.

    There is so much manipulation of the electorate in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador by the ruling party, for years it was the Liberals and Now the Conservatives. We have been manipulated for 62 years now by Ottawa whose idealogy on Government is Centralist. We have had the wool pulled over our eyes on the development of all of our natural resources, yes, every last one of them, which saw one or the other of the Canadian provinces become the primary beneficiary, while we languished with the worse economy in Canada and a Politician-Made impoverished people. As NDP Leader Lorraine Michael said the ruling party MHAs talk in circles. We, the electorate, are spoken to that way so that we remain unaware forever of what is transpiring within government, that concerns our economic well-being. This morning I heard from the News Media that Darrin King, Conservative MHA alledgely told Newfoundland and Labrador's Liberal MP Judy Foote, that since she exercised her democratic right and assisted another contestant in the Provincial Election race, who was running against him that he would not be easy on her in the future or something to that effect,indicates to me that what he really said is that he will not toe the line for his electorate, but instead he will toe the line for what PM Stephen Harper wants, afterall MP JUdy Foote is our Opposition against PM Harper desires. Isn't that the type of MHA and MP that we have voted in for the past 62 years? But for the most part of the 62 years we hadn't really figured out how the politicians worked. If he actually said that he is shafting his electorate and that can only fall under the category of Corruption. We need MHA Darrin King to come to the microphones and clear up what he really said. And then there were two other MHAs I heard being interviewed on how they would conduct their tenure in the Legislature, one was a seasoned MHA and the other just newly elected, and both said they would have to talk to their Premier because they could make a statement on that question, but both said they would be toeing the line for what the Premier desired. And we all know the Premier before the election pledged herself to PM Stephen Harper. He told her he wanted loyalty and she told him "You Got It". We are SHAFTED again. Is there anyway of impeaching those MHAs who have already shafted their electorate by telling us they are not working on our behalf?
