Penashue dodges CBC reporter’s question … again

in Daily Indygestion by

On March 5 CBC reporter Peter Cowan asked former Labrador MP Peter Penashue how donation errors were made in his 2011 campaign. Penashue dodged the question, as he has in the past, and instead turned the conversation around, accusing Cowan and the CBC of treating him “unfairly”. Penashue also told Cowan he had learned one of Cowan’s colleagues was running the Liberal campaign, referring to former CBC radio host Cindy Wall, who retired two years ago and is now running the campaign for Liberal candidate Yvonne Jones. Penashue’s former Labrador adviser, Donna Paddon, also used to work for CBC. Read CBC’s full story here.

CFB Goose Bay loses chance for supersonic training activities

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism by

The CBC is reporting that the military has withdrawn an application to conduct supersonic flight training in Labrador. Just 3 years ago the Department of National Defence asked the province to conduct and environmental assessment for the base to fly more than a thousand supersonic training flights over the area – a plan that was signalled as important to the long-term viability of the base. This is worrisome for Goose Bay, who were assured by the Conservative government and Labrador MP Peter Penashue as recently as October that “There has been a lot of interest and people are looking at how to expand 5 Wing Goose Bay,” he said. “There’s going to be more stuff happening and so I think I’ll have to say: stay tuned,” he said.

Feds active in provincial elections like never before

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism by

Politicians across the country say that the federal Conservative government has crossed a dangerous line by meddling in provincial elections. In recent weeks members and even Ministers of the federal government have directly taken on provincial politicians – violating the unwritten rule to respect federal/provincial political barriers. Last week federal Finance minister Jim Flaherty was quoted saying that Ontario “can’t afford four more years of the same Dalton McGuinty government.” Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz on the NDP’s majority win this week in Manitoba: “I prefer to work with the farmers of Manitoba than an NDP government that has gone past its best-before date.” And in PEI, the Chronicle Herald is reporting accusations of a setup against Robert Ghiz’s Liberal party during that election.

Confusion over service Canada downsizing

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

The Provincial government is calling them job cuts, while the Federal government is calling it attrition and retraining – but whichever way you slice it, Service Canada job losses are taking place in Newfoundland and Labrador. Peter Penashue is disputing reports and claims that workers at Service Canada offices across the province are going to lose their jobs. He says the government will take care of workers who will be affected by changes that occur through attrition and other means, such as retraining. Jeannie Baldwin of the Public Service Alliance of Canada said the union had been told that the modernization of employment insurance processing at Service Canada centres will result in a total of 70 job cuts in Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor, Corner Brook and Goose Bay. Some pink slips, she has been told, have already gone out. She said Gander will be the hardest hit, with 29 positions being…

Getting elected is the easy part

in Featured/Through the Fog by

It was my experience that most Members of Parliament are working extremely hard – but the disconnect between what the voter expects from their MP and what that MP is actually required to do when in office is so great that there is no wonder there is perpetual disappointment.
