HAPPY NEW YEAR IN VERSE, OF COURSE

HAPPY
NEW YEAR

An
open stove –
Wood-junks
burn
Red-orange-yellow
In
flickering flames –
A
rosy glow.
Scent
of smoke,
And
ghostly faces
In
coals and soot.

Hugging
heat,
Fond
memories
Of
fires past
And
tinkers’ tartan.
Warm
wishes:
A
happy New Year.

Churchill Falls Explainer (Coles Notes version)

END OF THE UPPER CHURCHILL POWER CONTRACT: IMPROVING OUR BARGAINING POWER

This is the most important set of negotiations we have engaged in since the Atlantic Accord and Hibernia. Despite being a small jurisdiction we proved to be smart and nimble enough to negotiate good deals on both. They have stood the test of time and have resulted in billions of dollars in royalties and created an industry which represents over a quarter of our economy. Will we prove to be smart and nimble enough to do the same with the Upper Churchill?

AN ETHICAL WALL FOR AND A TÊTE-À-TÊTE WITH PREMIER FUREY

I've been wondering if the whole "ethical wall" business has prevented the Premier of our province from acting where he might and should act?
