The gall of the current Progressive Conservative government!
A so-called “have” Canadian province being forced to slash and burn reminiscent of Greece or the Third World?
A government with such an obvious lack of planning and foresight that it could drastically cut justice, education (College of the North Atlantic programs, for example), cultural programs (The Rooms), health care, wildlife and tourism, to name just a few, is capable of anything.
Is there anyone in the province who would not be laughed at for suggesting this government has been a good manager of our estimable resources?
And after all the critical analysis presented regarding why we should not embark on Muskrat Falls at this point in time (or ever), is there possibly a better argument against it than it has been put forth by this crowd?
Under their watch we have seen
the shutdown of major industries at
Harbour Breton, Grand Falls and Stephenville, indicative of their near-abandonment of rural Newfoundland and Labrador generally. Their survival strategy seems to be bully, hide, misinform, fraudulently influence, obfuscate generally and hold on for dear life.
Of course, we have no one to blame but ourselves. In a democracy we always get the government we deserve.
Is this the best we can do?
