A POET’S PLEA: WE NEED TO KNOW WHO SOLD THE FARM

RISE AND FALLS

Standing
firm on guard for thee,
we
coalesce to make our plea,
and
while the horse has left the barn,
we
need to know who sold the farm;
An
enterprise whose smell pervades,
the
waters and its everglades;
whose
genesis just boggles minds,
while
mares will watch their bare behinds;

Where
was sense when pique prevailed,
impending
storms but off she sailed;
did
due diligence lose its way,
which
brought us to this fatefull day?
Enquire,
ye learned minds, of why,
the
Muskrat ever got its bye;
of
what its tail might yet reveal,
if
all else fails, it’s sex appeal.

NALCOR (Masquerading as ‘Hydro’)LIVES IN AN UPSIDE DOWN WORLD

If a Big Mac costs McDonalds $10 to produce and it is sold for $1.50, McDonalds will go out of business. They would not declare a profit!

REMEMBERING BILL MARSHALL

Bill left public life shortly after the signing of the Atlantic Accord and became a member of the Court of Appeal until his retirement in 2003. During his time on the court he was involved in a number of successful appeals which overturned wrongful convictions, for which he was recognized by Innocence Canada. Bill had a special place in his heart for the underdog.

Churchill Falls Explainer (Coles Notes version)

If CFLCo is required to maximize its profit, then CFLCo should sell its electricity to the highest bidder(s) on the most advantageous terms available.

  1. Tom Osborne… just another in lamentably long line of incompetent NL politicians, the lot of which can best be described as a bunch of hopelessly naive con artists living in a technicolor dreamworld.

    He now appears to believe that by avoiding mention of the excessive provincial debt resulting from a hideously bloated government's horrendous spending problem… will serve to sucker the voters and soften them up for the coming election.

    At least from Cathy Bennett the public got straight talk, as grim as as it was… rather than the asinine blatherings of a partisan fool.

    This Osborne individual is lost… unfit to hold the finance portfolio.
