    The tri-colour is a fake fkag to begin with. Its' a republican flag for a place that was never a republic. It was dreamed up by the gent who created the Irish tri-colour, but never had a place in Newfoundland - except with the narrow minded types. It has come to represent all the things that are wrong with Newfoundland. The out dated mentalities, the economic/political/cultural drama queens, and those that are trying to figure out why 250,000 plus Newfoundlanders now call the rest of the country home.Are they all traitors? To the types that fly the tri-colour the answer is yes.

    I wonder how much John Smith gets for his PC PR duties. I'll give him this much, with the limited material he's given, he does a very creative job trying to turn a sows ear into a silk purse. It would appear, however, that Mr. Smith has a basement office deep in the bowels of the Confederation Building as he certainly has difficulty seeing the light.

    Seems to me the best way to make Corner Brook Mill profitable is to run it for 8 months and shut it the winter time( paper markets being soft, and assuming other of their mills in Quebec can produce in the winter). During winter in nfld, sell the excess unused electricity to Nfld Hydro to help heat our homes, and reduce operation at Holyrood. The only downside is this counters the need for Muskrat Falls, and mine owners appear anxious to have this paid for by the taxpayer and householder. Perhaps John Smith could comment on this suggestion.

      Well, if only it were that easy. The small amount of power that CBPP uses would not put a dent in what we will need over the next 30 years....that is why Muskrat is needed, not just for the 100 megawatts that Vale needs, or the two GBSs that will be built here, or the three new 12 story buildings going up in downtown as we speak, or the hundreds upon hundreds of new homes being built every year, and the mining in labrador. We will need the power from muskrat to get us to the next phase of development in the province...anyone who can't see that is fooling themselves...

    Looks like typical Jonesian logic. It's the age old belief that NLers are not fit, or competent, to take care of themselves. No, we need mother Ottawa to look after us. Sounds defeatist to me - OMG, you're a Harperite in disguise.

    No...I don't think Ms. Dunderdale is a bad Premier, I think she is doing a good job in a very difficult situation. It must be nice to sit back, write a few bad paragraphs, and be critical of someone who is doing their best for the province. She is faced with more serious, and challenging situations in a day then you see in a year Mr. Jones. So, instead of wondering about which flags to run up your post, why don't you run for office?You seem to have all the answers...what a dupe...

      John Smith, you can't be writing this tripe with a straight face. Dunderdale facing hard times? This government is blessed with far more cash than any of the governments prior to the PC's coming into power. The toughest decisions that she faces is how to divvy up the pork. Meanwhile, the real tough decisions go unmade and our government continues on their merry way frittering away our non-renewable resource dollars.
