I agree Bob Wakeham deserves to be commended for telling it like it is. Thanks Bob please keep the truth coming. Maybe, just maybe we will be able to have the truth aired on why our province, Newfoundland and Labrador, which was endowed by nature with a wealth of natural resources has languished in creating a vibrant economy for itself, despite the great supply of natural resources and great strategic location. Could it have had something to do with the politicians we elected down through the years and the manner in which they played the political game to enhance their own personal riches? Unless we change the way our politicians operate, we will never get ahead in this beautiful and well endowed province. We have to take a stand right here and right now and take some control over the say in the development of our natural resources.

It is a disservice to the citizens of this province to politicize such an important decision. The proposed project will affect generations. Our government owes us a full and carefully considered examination of all alternatives. Forcing a decision between only two alternatives is unlikely to lead to the best choice. For our sakes, let's hope all elected representatives can take a step back, investigate, consider the implications, and make an informed decision.
