Great day outdoors yesterday, in the – teens and sunny with little or no wind.

Today brings a bunch of provincial ministers to town. A public meeting/meet and greet is scheduled for the town hall at 7 pm.
If history is a guide this will come to naught vis a vis any positive changes, but I don’t mind being proven wrong if indeed something positive does come out of it.
I have some issues to raise, I have already given a heads up to our MHA on the Hydro billing issue, and then there is the ever frustrating and deteriorating marine shipping issue. There should be many complaints on that one, I wonder if they will listen of resort to the time old “yous don’t know nuffin, our people are the experts” spiel.

Then there is the bigger issue of a new airstrip for Nain. Without any interest and backing from the Feds that will go nowhere.

Be interesting to see what else is raised. For inspiration and mental strength in dealing with these issues and the people involved I have dusted off my degree from Wooll-U. That is it on the masthead. If all else fails I can use the boomerang as it was intended.

The suspicious death reported early last week has now turned into a first degree murder charge. People are puzzled why no information has been forthcoming to the community until now, and even now there still is very little.

Based on the results of the Port Hope Simpon Regional Airport, I'd say your headed for a "Death by Study" result.

And by the way, you talk about how this, blog, is a means to express your views freely? Why then do you censor responses from people who wish to express thier views about your southern attitude?

Your humble Inuk servent.

Ooops, hit the wrong botton. Seems like someone has a rather large hair up their nose.

On reading the anonymous comments one wage commented “the price of fame”.
I am more inclined to call it “the price one pays for expressing views that do not conform to the narcissistic racist status quo”.

Southern Attitude? In Nain?

If the study doesn't kill it, the cost-shifting will.

Can anyone explain why Danny Williams, who is ever so autonomous from Ottawa, wants federal funding to replace provincially-owned and provincially-operated transportation facilities?

Is Labrador 100% part of the province, or only 50%, or 33%, depending on which cost-shifting formula the Danny Williams Government favours on any given afternoon?

Didn't you know by now? The Danny Williams Government only considers Labrador apart of the province as a whole...when the Island gets something in return ($$$)!

So, with that said, it speaks for itself when the Province had to operate/own something! Which is spending more money than making, so the figure of speech comes in "Dad, could I have $100?)...(Which in politics is $100,000,000)
