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.
