And Jeers as well to the Telgram and all the other media in Newfoundland...for complicity in letting all departments of government totally off thehook on this Orlova scandal, and droppogn them atter completely....it's not even worth a MENTION in this "Cheers & Jeers"? Really?! A precursor to how you'll cover an oil spill, I'm sure......

Jeers: The governemnt regulators who demand compliance by one and all under threat of legal action, but who conveniently circumvent their own laws and rules and complicitly drag an ecological threat away from oil infrastructure only to set it free again and become "someone else's" problem. It's all about public service folks...certainly not hypocritical, gutless, unethical incompetence, immoral opportunism, and putting the value of saving a dollar ahead of justice or accountability.

"the trivial governments we now seem to elect." What? Were you born yesterday? Do you seriously believe this is something new? We always elected "trivial" governments.

Well done, Telegram. In one solitary paragraph, you peeled away the layers of rhetoric and succinctly addressed the essence of government's role and responsibility in the George River caribou ban. The only additional element I'd ask of government, in the big-picture scheme of things, is why now? The biology and illegal activity, supposedly provoking the recently-announced ban, is nothing new; GR herd numbers have been in steady decline for years, the poaching has been going on for years. So why did government pick now to, supposedly (only time will tell if they're willing to go all the way and enforce the ban), put it's foot down and invite, as you put it, a world of hurt? By the way, nice one on government press releases. As the kids like to say, SNAP!

Don't forget Cyril's sidekick Hollett. A basement dweller spending hours putting out his drivel.

Cheers to the trivial governments we now seem to elect. They are all about trivial at the expense of the really important. When governments pass draconian legislation to hide their activities I, for one, believe they are up to no good. It is just one more example of a government in disarray and with no sense of direction. They are trying to fool us with bafflegab and meaningless announcements while ensuring that nothing of substance is able to get out.
