When people (and notably any Newfoundlander), want to defend something that logic dictates is simply indefensible, something that has no economic basis or sense whatsoever, they tend to avoid mentioning any numbers, figures or statisitcs like the plague. Instead, they couch everything in touchy-feely vagueries, relying on the inherently immeasureable, emotional and illogical (lifestyle....expensive-but-necessary 'bait' for health care workers...). And if successful in getting everyone to ignore any semblance of financial reality, anything is possible...and you end up with all the wonderfully viable, well-thought-out things that we have always bought or created in Newfoundland...ta-daaa! As far as a guy leaving Whislter for Marble Mountain, and you're implication that this indicates career competence and sound decision-making? To that I say: Really?!

A victim's family speaks November 12, 2013

“We just couldn’t seem to reason with him, and we could not get any help, no matter where we turned — from counsellors, to friends, to police, to lawyers — there was nothing anybody could do.”

Exclusively in The Telegram, the parents of Juliane Hibbs — killed Oct. 15 with her fiancé Vince Dillon by former boyfriend Brian Dawe — speak publicly for the first time about the tragic events that led up to the murder, and how the system failed their daughter and lets victims slip through the cracks.
