What ever app the premier is using to run the province, it ain't working. And now we have another virus on her smart phone that has spread from natural resources to finance. Maybe steve kent will do another great job of burying this embarrassment of the organization he so respects and is excited to be apart of. He did it for the scouts! Only that was for more than just abuse of power, policy, procedure and freedom of infomation. Some of his old colleagues thought he handled it beatifully and the appartentally so did the duderdale government who rewarded him with his new position. I think no else wanted the job only some one who was power hungry and thought that it could help professionally.

Again, not one word on the real-time scandal of the Orlova....crickets. The tely is too busy covering the "drunk driver arrest" of the day, is it? Newspapers might be a dying breed, but this one should be shot.

The continuing saga of the Lyubov Orlova is on our front page and our website today.

Pam, that it is "on your front page" is hardly proof of anyone doing any digging on the story...perhaps it's been so long since you broke a real story, you just forget what to do. Instead of just acting as Shoeybi's mouthpiece, has anyone gotten a quote or a statement from anyone at the port authority, or the DOT, or government ? Try that maybe.....

Another plum posting for a politico. Even some of the old Liberal political staffers who snitched to Danny are still in there, holding jobs with titles like "special projects". Makes me laugh at how pathetic political people are. And Dumb.

They are even putting unqualified people into union positions. I know one guy in the Industry department who has no qualifications but has a union job at the top of the pay scale without any competition. No education, no qualifications, just knows someone close to Dunderdale and Williams.

Having made legislation to lock the island residents into purchasing the very high cost Muskrat power, we now have to figure out how to sell the juice cheaply on the mainland and US and avoid the open competitive market requirement dictated by FERC rules under NAFTA. Allowing cheap power imports for the island residents would be a disaster for the goverment. The province of Quebec is poised to make a killing on purchasing Muskrat power and selling it at a profit into the US. If we could only find a way to get in on it, the big giveaway could be turned into something positive. We must wait and see as Kennedy has said.

So, how would you import power? Would you say presto...and suddenly we would have the 2-3 billion it would take to construct the lines across the gulf? Then we would be subject to whatever power rates others would dictate to us? Instead of investing in our own project, providing power to our own province? Impoting power from Quebec? Yeah that would be great...buying back our own power that we sell to QH at less than a cent a KWH...pay 3 billion for the infrastructure, and be on the hook to them for eternity? Really? You are a fool...

"So, how would you import power? " Hey Johnny Einstein: you ever fill up your car with 'energy'? Guess how that came to pass....

How much of that personal debt is not in the form of consumer products, as you suggest, but in student loans?

I wonder which high profile Tory will be jettisoned into that plum posting? who's left to receive their reward. As for the Secrecy Act, did you really expect anything less from that Secret Society known as the Con Party of NL?
