- Mr. Wangersky-- It was more appropriate to say it was GIVEN AWAY by those in power instead of GOT AWAY.

Mr. Wangersky, it was more like purposely "GIVEN AWAY" away to the province of preference, which appears to be the case around here since Nova Scotia has gotten everything that the province of Newfoundland and Labrador has lost, compliments of the Federal Government. Natural Resources suffer from inertia and they cannot move on their own accord, somebody has to cause that action. A certain group of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, no doubt, also added more Millions of dollars to their own personal economy from causing that action with FPI. An Inquiry should be struck on that move for sure. We have to STOP the exploitation of our Natural Resources by those in power! After 550 years of being in this beautiful place, Newfoundland and Labrador, that was so well endowed by Nature, it is time that our province and its people prospered without taking on the debt we are taking on with Muskrat Falls. Shame on those who committed the crimes against our people, a people who should have been well off economically given our great geographic location and endowment of Natural Resources. I hope those who did us in grow a conscience and stop the exploitation.

Hi. Russell; You hit the nail right on the head as usuall, great journalism. I would like to see published the names of the leading politicians who dismantled this company F.P.I. on behalf of newfoundlanders as a whole, but especially fisherman and plant workers, they must be hanging their head in shame.

If you're saying High Liner slid through "our" fingers, "our" being the people of NL as represented by the provincial government, and you're implying that government could have presided over the same level of mercantile success the private sector had with building High Liner, then frankly you're living in a dream world. Involving itself in the running and expansion of seafood processing and marketing ventures is not the mandate of government. The mandate of government is to provide a stable environment to facilitate and enable such ventures to conduct business.
