Both opposition parties made this committment last year before the ink was even dry on Bill 29. Are memories and attention spans really that short?
- Premier Dunderdale please rescind Bill 29 and create an Anti-Corruption Commission to assure transparency and accountability.

This morning's National News reported two probable Canadian scandals that have to be investigated. Read the two articles below to get the details. With all the corruption we hear about on a daily basis, why should we put faith in our Newfoundland and Labrador government in hiding matters behind Bill 29? As a result of not wanting to accept blind faith, we, not only, need our Government to recind Bill 29, we also need an Anti-Corruption Commission created to keep an eye on all the dealings surrounding the development of our natural resource base at this very moment. If we have to live under a cloak of secrecy and no accountability on what government is doing you can be assured we will be SHAFTED and taken to the cleaners through the lack of creation of an economy here, just as we have been over the past 64 years. We need honesty and accountability. If our Premier does not provide transparency and accountability you can be assured that neither she nor her PC party will get elected during the next Election. Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are rabid about being treated with honesty. You can hear it on the Talks Shows every day and in the commentary to this Newspaper. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/investigation-launched-after-accusations-that-cn-rail-over-billed-go-transit-by-millions/article14536374/ http://thechronicleherald.ca/canada/1156878-cra-wrongly-refunded-381k-to-former-mob-chief-reporthonorable, rescind Bill 29 and create an Anti-Corruption Commission and you will be the better off for it in the long run. Honesty is the best policy! http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/investigation-launched-after-accusations-that-cn-rail-over-billed-go-transit-by-millions/article14536374/ http://thechronicleherald.ca/canada/1156878-cra-wrongly-refunded-381k-to-former-mob-chief-report

It's no trouble to get politicians to commit to anything. The problem is getting them to keep their commitments. You should expect all the Liberal leader wannabees to make some kind of promise to do something about Bill 29 but don't be surprised when they don't keep that commitment.

Sounds like a possible case of Abilene paradox otherwise known as a desire not to "rock the boat". The theory is often used to help explain extremely poor group decisions and notions of superiority , according to Wikipedia.org. Hopefully there's a solution but there's no guarantee of other camps management styles either especially New Democrats. Libs, of course, have a past history of taking their turn at the trough every 10 yrs or so. In any case, Bill 29 appears to cause it's creators a lot of problems.
