The SPCA in goose bay DOES NOT put down animals because they run out of room, sorry if that's "not your understanding". Not all spca's are "no kill" (meaning that no animal that is physically and emotionally healthy enough to be rehomed is put down, not that they refuse to euthanize suffering animals), but this one is. When the shelter runs out of room (as it always is) the animals go out to foster homes.

Lower Churchill Project construction September 23, 2014

The Telegram accepted an offer from Nalcor Energy for a three-day tour of a collection of Lower Churchill Project work sites in Labrador beginning Monday , Sept. 15, 2014. A single reporter was sent. The costs for the tour were covered by the Crown corporation, with the exception of a single night’s hotel stay and a breakfast. The total cost is not yet available. The paper viewed the tour as an opportunity to connect directly with individual project managers rarely heard from to date, as well as more people working on the project.

Using interviews and discussions from the tour, The Telegram offers a five-part series providing an overview and update on the province's controversial $6.99-billion power project, with a look at related topics including: project logistics, camp life and worker safety.
