    An aging and already the oldest population in Canada does not auger well for growth in electrical rates. Somebody forgot to tell the government and NALCOR they were looking at the wrong tea leaves. What it does tell us though is that these seniors will end up paying exorbitant amounts for their future electricity needs. As it stands, we will automatically be indebted to the tune of an extra 1000 per year for every single person in this province, simply to pay the interest costs........that means every senior, every child, and many others whose annual income is very limited. How, in the name of sanity, can our population be expected to pay for that needless monstrosity known as Muskrat Falls(or Danny's legacy?). The image of "Nero fiddled while Rome burned" certainly comes to mind with this administration. They preach fiscal prudence on the one hand while not seriously addressing an overgrown public sector and throwing untold billions at this dam project that will create our own fiscal cliff.

    I'd be the perfect person for the job. I love lots of money and perks. Get a vacation every election and leave my files floating in the wind, and not know a thing about the job. Id be perfect, even better then ross ried...depending on what you think good is of course. Its positions like these that are directly responsible for governments getting nothing done.

    I find it revolting and appalling that yet another blow-hard Tory supporter, Ross Reid, gets a cushy appointment as a festive gift without any open competition. It does little to dismiss the old adage that "it's not who you know, but who you...." And, suspiciously announced in the usual sneaky way, by that secret society known as the Con Party of NL. The Blunderfest Administration's patrongage appointments have to STOP!

      Scott, Would you be as vociferous in your condemnation if it was a "blow-hard Liberal or NDP supporter"?
