Way to go Pam, You showed us again that this government is being run by highly inept Ministers who are not really in the know. Our Premier is the biggest example of this.Can't wait for the next election.

The filibuster seems to have done it's job. Collin's, Davis, Kennedy's debating on the bill was embarrassing at best. They showed their stripes. Pretty sad.

It is obvious that this administration has something they want to hide, whether is is action already taken or action being deliberated and for which they know their popularity will continue to plummet. I can think of nothing so worthy of a cover-up as their pet project...Muskrat Falls...and, for this reason, the legislative changes contained in Bill 29 are so draconian, in my opinion. The restrictions placed on agencies assigned to review the project could not prevent any of the reports, wither for or against, from issuing caveats regarding some of NALCOR's assumptions. This is a preemptive strike to ensure that they proceed in the face of clear evidence to the contrary but, more importantly, it is a chilling reminder that we are that much closer to a dictatorship than we have been in a long time.

The Dunderdale PCs and its loutish, befuddled ministers such as Felix Collins continue to squander what's left of Danny Williams' hard-earned political capital, to the extent that now the NDP now have higher approval ratings than the Dunderdale PCs. The interview between Collins and CBC reporters Cochrane and Antle on Bill 29 sounded like two cops interviewing a befuddled patsy; it was painful to listen to... indeed, as the interview progressed and the incompetence of a government minister became all too clearly apparent, it was downright alarming. But I digress, my primary point regarding this post is that now that this abominable Bill 29 has become law, the question is... will the party that forms the next government commit to repealing the Dunderdale government's version of the Official Secrets Act?

That's a great comeback, Pam. The letter from Felix Collins was vexatious indeed, and preposterous in its assertions. I wonder if the provincial government is so cock-sure about its changes to Bill 29, now that they've been smacked down in the polls? If they want to preserve their hold on power, I would suggest they repeal these changes.
