THE BARD ON MUSKRAT, MARIJUANA AND CORRUPTION

SUITS?
Do
“Suits in Boots”* with greedy hand
Plunder
freely projects grand,
And
Shills attest the sleight-of-hand
As
arrogance and hubris brand.  
Muskrat?
Marijuana land? Et al, all demand
The
question: who commands?
Who’s
biggest suit from Newfoundland?
Democracy’s
a thin veneer –
Lip
service only, leads the cheer.
Dishonesty
comes with curling sneer
As
strings are pulled for elite sphere.
Does
Province vie in corruption van
With
Stans, Somalias, and Sudan
As
numbers veil the anchorman?

Quote: Andy Wells, The Muskrat Falls Inquiry

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. That no comments are made on this verse, so appropriate as to what is being exposed, and what we see, at the Inquiry speaks to the lack of appreciation of this art form in our province and by UG readers.
    Hats off to the Bard, and keep on truckin.
