Newfoundland is surrounded by it, Labrador is bordered by it.
It changes our weather, moderates our winters, cools our summers.
It’s integral to life here, and when we move away, we miss it keenly.

Muskrat Falls — what can I say? It’s simply putting this province in an abyss of debt, but why? It makes no sense to me or anyone I know. Is the project being milked for all it’s worth, like a Jersey cow, at taxpayers’ expense?
Friends of mine had a fish processing plant burn to the ground a year ago around the bay, in Bay de Verde. Just a year after the fact, it’s up and running again — a state-of-the-art facility employing hundreds of hardworking Newfoundlanders. It’s one of a kind, perhaps the most sophisticated fish processing plant in the world.
It makes no sense to me or anyone I know.
Enough of the Muskrat Falls fiasco. Get ’er done, b’y!
Quinlan Group: good on ya.
