So, if I understand Mr. Hogan correctly, his plan for economic development is a dump? Wasn't he in government when the "brainstorm" of the day was the construction of an incinerator to burn imported US garbage? And isn't Placentia already the home of the Eastern Newfoundland Tire Dump? Why is it that some people's idea of economic development involves new or further destruction of the environment? Perhaps it is time for Mayor Hogan to "Think Outside the Box" - or in this case, dump - when creating his business development plans.....

Wow, great article! And great style of writing. You've really put this into perspective for me; you've opened my eyes to something I've apparently been blind to. What the heck is wrong with this government???

what is over ruling COMMON SENSE???? why is it the ones that are put there to make these decisions???? have got to be told about the damages that are being done and were done???? why is it they have to keep being told???? is it they do not like to be told???? or is they are not being told???? what ever the reasons of it has got to stop or how is going to get better if you let every thing get polluted with every thing that has been polluted????

David, you're right . The only reason we can pretend this is a pristine place is because of the small population and large land mass. Bill, there's a major credibility gap here. Aren't you the one holding up completion of the bridge in Placentia because of petty, small time, municipal politics. Maybe if you'd done something when you were a Cabinet Minister, you wouldn't have been booted out. The only "acting" voters saw from you was a comedy routine.

If you think your examples are effed up, don't pay any attention to the tea leaves in Corner Brook.....that place is one missed mill payday away from being a ghost town, yet the local Suzuki-ists are busy manipulating and brainwashing people and putting up roadblocks to any initiative other than those that emit 100% "anti-bullying hemp vapour" into the atmosphere. Message to the brain-undead: this place was raped and denuded and polluted ----- with EVERYONE'S tacit permission ---- decades ago. Yes, it is sad. Yes, it is shameful. But it is reality, and pretending this place is a pristine, untouched island is just pathetically stupid. Of course, generations of government cheques can do that.
