$671,000,000 Transfer Payments


That is a lot of money and that is the figure for this province, for this fiscal year of 2007.

A lot of money on top of all the billions of dollars from Ottawa since this province joined Confederation in 1949.

The people of Labrador should ask themselves this question today:
What the Hell do we get from these huge Transfer Payments? Where is our share, our share for infracture, water and sewer, safe roads to drive on? Highways between communities, especially the larger communities? Highways to trade and move safely on to visit family and friends? Clean Hydro power from our own power source? Industries for our people to make a living in etc?
