After watching the 5th estate program last evening one thing seems clear. False information was given to the public by the rear admiral in his press statement. The situation was exasperated further by statements of support to the rear admiral made by the minister of DND and further again [though not in the 5th estate program] by the minister for intergovernmental affairs and member for Labrador.

So clearly, at a minimum the rear admiral has to step down while a full inquiry is called into the handling of the Burton Winters incident and further expand the inquiry to look into SAR capabilities/inadequacies within the Atlantic region.

The province can not be let off the hook either for their role in the inadequacies of SAR in Labrador.

Peter Penashue may hold onto his role as MP for Labrador until the next election, but that will be it for him. PP may hold onto his ministership, but that would only be because he is the only conservative from NL.
It still stuns me that so many people were fooled into voting for him. They were not paying attention, they were voting for the PP of years ago, not the PP of today.

Had a care package arrive yesterday with some goodies, two pictured here. Also some dehydrated peas and chocolates.
