Maggy, I wish i could agree with you, Concernig our provincial Liberal party. But i can't, As a long time supporter of the party, I lost all of my faith. Like many Newfoundlander and Labradorians,Cause on July 5/2013, everything change for me, when our freedom of choice was taken from us. Who should be our new leader, All because of a article on june 24/2013, by Charles Murphy of corner brook. Far as I'm concern this man should be in the race, No liberal will ever get another vote from me.Because one time our party was for the people, Now it base on control, and no respect for our people.

I guess the Telegram has developed a bit of an expertise in how to skew polls.

I, for one, can't wait untill the NDP are forced to bring forth their policies. They are on every form of media, everyday, constantly complaining, and whining, and pointing out all the woes we have here in the province. While some think this is the job of those in opposition, I would like for once to hear what they would do to remedy this never ending list of problems. It is so easy to go up in the polls when you have to make no decisions, no policies, just point out the bad, and then move on to the next rubber chicken dinner. The NDP would sink this province so far, so fast we would be left destitute within a year. People in the media treat Lorraine Michael with kidde gloves, I don't know why, but everyone is so accomodating when they speak with her. While the Premier is called to task, and lambasted at every chance... I only hope the voters of the province wake up to what an NDP government would mean to us...before its too late...

Kathy no one is forced to bring forth their policies. Geerome has told us that the Conservative Blue Book has nothing to do with how they will run the province after election. Kathy the ones complaining and whining are the voters. That's why you are so far down in the polls you can't see up. And Kathy don't worry about anyone putting the Province in massive debt. You have given the Province so much debt we won't be able to borrow again until 2100. But don't worry the voters have realized what yur party has done to us and will give you your reward.

I'm not a fan of any of the provincial parties, but I find it hilarious to see John Smith holding forth about the fiscal recklessness of the NDP, especially when he jumps at every opportunity to defend Muskrat Falls, the biggest and most insane money-pit ever to have been inflicted upon this province.

Sad but true. It is the reason that the Liberals and not the NDP will form the government after this province's next election. Ironically both the NDP and Conservatives will be knocked out of contention for the same reason. The Tories under Dunderdale have already demonstrated their absolute ineptness and irresponsibility in protecting the financial and economic integrity of the province. And Michaels has clearly shown her inclination to do exactly the same thing. The only difference is that Dunderdale is squandering billions on her friends in big business, whilst Michaels would do the same for labour and the public service unions. Too bad in the case of Michaels because she has positive attributes in areas where Dunderdale is a complete failure. But getting this province in over its head financially is what got it in trouble before Confederation - indeed it was the principal factor in forcing Confederation on us - and it was the biggest problem with the Smallwood government after Confederation. Somewhere there is a premier who is prepared to grow the economy on a sustainable basis but otherwise to live within our fiscal means. I'm guessing it will be Dwight Ball (who I think deserves the first chance) or alternatively Paul Antle.
