- Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have to wrestle their natural resources from the pilferers
- February 14, 2012 - 06:45
Thanks Mr. Fillmore for your collection of Ieas and Opinions by Journalist ontained in the address in your comment, I particularly think number 13 of your list pertains to the province pf Newfoundland and Labrador which pertains to "RAMPANT CRONYISM AND CORRUPTION which states". " Those in business circles and close to the power elite often used their position to enrich themselves. This corruption worked both ways; the power elite would receive financial gifts and property from the economic elite, who in turn would gain the benefit of government favoritism. Members of the power elite were in a position to obtain vast wealth from other sources as well: for example, by stealing national resourcese of Newfoundland and Labrador which states " NEWFOUNDLANDERS AND LABRADORIANS we have to wake up to the rampant cronyism and corruption that is swirling around us and has been for decades. It has kept us severely down, despite our vast wealth of natural resources, and the depth of it is about to put us into third world conditions. We have to get a grip on our natural resources or they will all be TOTALLY secured in the hands of ex-politicians and their crony friends and business acquaintances.

Off topic a little -- but maybe readers would like to know about what Stephen Harper REALLY thinks about Canadians: http://nickfillmore.blogspot.com/2012/02/is-stephen-harper-displaying-fascist.html
- From my vantage point I believe NL's Natural Resources are being pilfered

From my vantage point I beleive all the Natural Resources of Newfoundland and Labrador are being appointed to be in the hands of ex-politicians, bureaurcrats and their acquaintances. I see the Fish Resource to be in the hands of a few of the Fish Processing operations, the Mineral Deposits and Hydroelectricity Resource in the hands of another group of ex-politicians and their crony friends, and our Oil Resource is appointed to God only knows who and God only knows who is getting benefit from it. As a result of what is going on nobody is going to tattle on each other because they are all looking out to each other's best interests. I do know that we are being told that we have to wrestle back some of our wealth because our province is not benefitting from its great endowment of natural resources. We should nationalize our natural resources to prevent this from happening. All I'm wondering now is when is the electorate of Newfoundland and Labrador going to throw their hands up in the air and say enough is enough, the corruption has to stop and it must stop NOW!

Congratulations, LA, on the keenness of your insight into gender bias: subjecting a male premier to the same sort of satire would of course be low-brow feminist?

I am no fan of the record of the current or former PC government. But this article is low brow patriarchal and sexist insult to women and seals. Time to retire the sewage factory, there are new waste water/effluent agreements soon coming into effect.

Well apart from it being a comedy show and knowing now where Dunderdale sits on all of this, not much offered forv a secret sitting. Funny yes but we need a gov to run this place. Lot of negativity from Dunderdale blaming everone else and not much info. No decisions or facts. Sounds like her own crowd are puppets or maybe parrots. I say all the more reason to look into her spending espec before the election. You know what they say about secrets - they're toxic. Be sure to turn over the rock. Can only imagine what will be crawling out from under this one! In terms of Muskrat, seems major cover up also. Seems a lot of ex-Politicians and their business buddies getting rich. I say pay for Muskrat yourselves, the mining community in Labrador, the way you used to and not on the public purse. You bunch of scoundrels awaiting to make a fortune with taxpayers paying the funding seed money. Get your own seed money the way mines used to have to - you Investors yes you. Our own locals. Shame on you!! The cat's out of the bag now. Dunderdale can stuff it!! Too bad she doesn't like the media or your average citizen writing in. The secrecy is going to come back to bite you in the are and Danny too. It always does!!
- What are the secrets the House closure are covering up

Mr. Wakeham what a great description you have depicted here in satire of what is going on in the House of Deciption!. I assume this was the type of governance that has gone on down through the years that have allowed so many of our Natural Resources to be approved for development that benefitted some ex-politicians , Bureaucrats and others more than they did the peoople of Newfoundland and Labrador. I am wondering at the moment is the closure to ensure that the risky Muskrat Falls Project can be rammed through with not having to listen to the desires of what the electorate of the province would prefer on this project. Some probing questions needs to be asked and answered on what is going on now and what has gone on in the past!
