- The hundred million dollar blunder

I heard Williams criticize Ball for saying he wouldn't have expropriated. That's not what I heard Ball say - did I miss something? The problem wasn't your decision to expropriate water and timber rights Mr. Williams but your accidental inclusion of a mill that had a net negative value to tune of a hundred million or more. Better that you acknowledge that a huge error was made on your watch, take responsibility and desist from trying to persuade us otherwise.

This was about Star Lake & Water Rights. Fortis, CHI/ENEL & Various Life Insurance companies. Would a journalist from the province please do some digging into what went on here b/w legislative changes arnd star lake & rattle brook / fortis and emera(algonquin)? Are there any real journalists left?

Russell, how can we force corporations to post such bonds when we're too busy giving them grants, unforgiveable loans, subisidies, tax incentives and, in the future, cheap discounted power?

Little Man Dan was the lead on this file; and, as an intrepid lawyer, he couldn't be wrong by expropriating Abitibi assets. And, I remember then Ministers of the Clown, Johnston saying "the polluter pays"; and Dunderdale, "they'll be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law". The effects of the Danny Damage Era will be felt for generations to come. This monumental boondoggle will cost hundreds of millions in cleanups, legal fees and future settlements. Thanks Dan bye, adding to your legacy.
