  • if the local media spent one tenth of the time reporting critically on economic actions of this McNeil govt as it does on knocking Pres. Trump possibly we would have our own form of “impeachment”

  • Once again Bill you have hit the nail directly on its head. With respect to the Inverness Airport, what you did not mention was that there is plenty of research indicating how far apart airports have to be to be viable financially. In the maritimes there has long been discussion that Fredericton, Moncton and Saint John are not really large enough and they have a much greater population base than Cape Breton. Inverness is already served by airports at Sydney and Port Hawkesbury and a well-designed land shuttle service (or perhaps a helicopter service) from them is financially more likely to succeed than government-funded, vote-buying investments that Nova Scotia taxpayers fund for years. Surely the CAT contract serves as the red flag you’ve waved.

  • They say “you get what you pay for” and it could also be said “you get what you vote for”. As long as Nova Scotians vote for politicians who turn what should be economic decisions into political ones, we will continue to experience such “sad stories”.
