    These cuts will change the climate, cause our murder rate to increase, promote the gay lifestyle, and result in several new types of cancers. It's nothing short of amazing how precious little the people in these positions did when they had these "jobs", but now that they aren't there, the place will go to hell.

      David, Get in tune! Over the past three weeks the place has already gone to hell. Peace, man.

    When you find that your water is unsafe to drink, your fish, moose and berries to contaminated to eat, your trails lead to garbage dumps, your air to dusty to breath and your prized scenery is now a hole in the ground, come look for those you need to make things right. But be prepared to work hard to coax them back because they will not be near. They will have taken their education, enthusiasm and families to other lands where they are valued.

    It's funny,,,when they get laid off, they were the "lynchpin" that keeps our civilization in operation. But when they were on the job, the place was going to hell anyway. They vcan'tt even figure out where the caribou are going!? The "environment" in Newfoundland is an absolute joke. So save my tax money, so I can go fishing in New Brunswick.

      David, they know exactly where the caribou are going. They are at a harmonious population level for the available habitat here in Newfoundland. And caribou do have natural population cycles, and this is the reason behind the low numbers in Labrador. The George River herd was less than 30K in the 1950's. On the island, there were an estimated caribou in 1956 when the Wildlife Division was formed. Today there are around 35,000. Development and fragmentation of habitat has reduced the ability of caribou to access much of their former habitat and this number is probably a safe threshold. Just 3 years ago, the Wildlife Division refused to grant a mining company permission to use track vehicles to explore caribou habitat in the Gaff Topsails. Cabinet however saw fit to enlist a more sympathetic branch of the Department of Environment and Conservation to over-rule Wildlife, and the operator got his approval. This example, and many others similar, are why the Wildlife Division has been cut to the bone by this bullying, vindictive government.

    The PC's should beef up the protection of the environment, it's in their own interest. Come next election they'll be an "endangered species".
