MOYA GREENE’S (DREADFUL) ECONOMIC RECOVERY (YOUTUBE) RELEASE

The only important thing that the public should do right now is become informed of what Moya Greene and the Premier’s Economic Recovery Team (PERT) are proposing. That is why I am providing a Link to Greene’s remarks. It is always better to hear it for yourself rather than through someone else’s lens. 

I have only begun examining the PERT Report. So far, I  am disturbed by much of what I am reading. I am hoping to be able to wade through this blizzard of buzzwords layered with a misunderstanding of the social and economic impacts of the fiscal measures (cutbacks) proposed. On Monday I will offer my view of what, so far, I have concluded is someone’s fanciful (green) version of Danny Williams’ energy warehouse. Until Monday. – Des Sullivan

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.
