There was a sod sand turning ceremony in Goose Bay earlier this week. No biggy in the grand scale of things, exccept for a couple of things.

First up the only news coverage I have come across of the ceremony was a pre-sand turning interview with CBC Labrador morning.

Second is the fact that the Nunatsiavut Group of Companies (NGC) is a major investor in this grand vision for Happy Valley-Goose Bay. You may remember that NGC is the business arm of the Nunatsiavut Government.

I only know the above news from a couple of tweets that came in, one containing the picture, I can ID three players in the NGC management team.

I would not know of the NGC investment in this project by checking out the relevant web sites, no mention what so ever.

I guess if some one took the time to ask why such secrecy the answer would most likely be, it is propriety information.

That is all well and good but many living in the land that is covered under the Nunatsiavut Government may have questions as to why such secrecy and why such investment (whatever it is) outside the land claims area.

Are all the NG employees in Nain or do some remain in GB? I understood all were to be in Nain by the time the new building was complete....

Still many employees still in GB, some scattered in other communities that should be in Nain at HQ.

Health, tourism, renewal and non renewable resources top positions still not in Nain that come to mind.

Some are due to lack of housing but many are due to people not willing to move.
