This one goes to you (Geoff Parker) manager of the Hebron Project Hello to all ,I'm a former Newf in Alberta 31 years working in the oil/gasconsulting/design/engineering and yes I've worked 6-years on NF drilling/production rig/platforms here in Alberta. Past 31 years I've been trying to get employment back in NF,with no success. I guess you have to be American or a foreign worker to work for min.wage. So much for getting Newf's back home.If you check the stats the only Newf's that go back to NF is for retirement. Regards Former Newfoundlander
