Grow a Heart you who are politicians. The time is long over-due to make our politicians Accountable for the problems they have foisted upon us.

I, like many of the electorate of Newfoundland and Labrador, exulted our politicians until recent years since I and others have seen through the the murky light of the governance they were providing us. We have now seen that those who held the prime positions in our government have made themselves the one-percenters of the world's population base through the unsavoury development of our natural resource base for themselves and their corporate acquaintances. We are now experiencing the bottom of the barrel from this type of governance. The poorest amongst HAVE TO resort to the Social Welfare System since they find it more beneficial to stay on the Welfare System so as not to become poorer by taking a lower paying job in the Fast Food Industry that will create a situation where they will have to completly rely on food banks and alms for their family's sustenance. It is time to hold those former and present politicians accountable for the corrupt way they have handled our natural resources and great location. They led us into a situation where the people of Newfoundland and Labrador have become the poorerst people in the nation. You, who are elected to government, will have to fix this problem immediately, it is a sorryful state that needs your immediate attention because children's survival depend upon their parents getting a fairer salary for their work. The 1 percenters, politicians and corporates, here and around the world have set up a system that is designed to…

Fishing for the Future December 23, 2014

As the Newfoundland and Labrador fishery moves through a series of changes — in leadership at the Fish, Food and Allied Workers Union, in international trade deals, in changing stocks — The Telegram has pulled together a series of stories to place the present in context and provide thoughts on the future. The goal is to spark discussion on what we, as a province, want the fishery to look like, what we want it to be, what is possible.

You can READ HERE what some of the people working in the industry had to say, and reporter Ashley Fitzpatrick's blog offers a glimpse into the work that went into compiling this in-depth series.

Moose class-action November 12, 2014

There's an ongoing debate about the damage and injury done in this province when vehicles strike moose on the roads and highways. Why is this happening? How can the damage be reduced? Who is to blame?

The Telegram continues to follow the story.

Remembrance Day 2014 November 11, 2014

There are so many stories Telegram and other TC Media reporters, editors and photographers have published over the years of how war has affected the province and its people. From those who fell on battlefields, those who returned injured and scarred physically and mentally, those who were held in prisoner of war camps, to those who risked their lives to keep the supply lines going, to those who nursed injured soldiers back to health, and to those who worried and waited for word. From the First World WAr to the war in Afghanistan, on the sea, over land and in the air, so many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have served and sacrificed for freedom and democracy. We continue to publish stories our staff uncover in honour of Remembrance Day, and offer this collection to help us all keep in mind the importance of Remembrance Day.
