Wasted thought in comments.
Here is a comment i left over on http://freenewfoundlandlabrador.blogspot.com/2006/11/he-said-she-said.html
You can't blame the politicians because they are just working within the system that the people support by voting for it.
It's called toe the party line.
Who draws the party line?
Think in this context when you read Tommy Douglas's Mouse Land. Not as a campaign slogan for the NDP.
Ontario draws the party line which the rest of the MP's from the colonies of Ontario are expected to toe.
The majority of MP's just by the fact of mob rules. The majority of MP's are from Ontario 106 out of 308 with Quebec wagging the tail of the Dog ON in that they have 75 seats out of 308 and are discontent in this federation.
When you hear politicians say they are doing what in the best interst of the country what they are really saying what is in the best interst of ON/QC just by sheer numbers.
That is why Ottawa isn't supposed to have control of the provinces resources because whats good for canada isn't necessarily what's good for the province which depends on the resource. Case in Point the Grand banks (ruptcy). It isn't good for the majority of canadians to take control of the 40% of the continental shelf which lies outside the 200 mile limit. Nor is it in the best interst of the majority of canadians ON/QC to support a call for a moratorium on bottomn dragging on the high seas of which 40% of our NL's continental shelf is considered to be aprt of the high seas.
Even though canada by it's own admission says canada doesn't bottom drag on the high seas very much. What they ommit to tell you is that 60% of the worlds Bottom Dragging takes place on the 40% of NL's continental shelf which lies outside the 200 mile limit.
If canada were to support a moratorium on bottom dragging on the high seas by extention that would include the Nose Tail and Flemish Cap which canada uses to garner favor on the world stage as well as improved trade relations with the EU and the 20 countries bottom Dragging night and day on NL's continental shelf.
Remember the Turbot wars? When canada Tobin arrested the Estai Spain threatened to cancel any and all Bombardier contracts if canada didn't drop the issue.
Canada dropped it in the best interest of canada and by extension the majority of canadians ON/QC to the detriment of NL's fishery.
That is why Ottawa isn't supposed to have control of the provinces resources because the best interest of canadians is very seldom what is in the best interest of the province which depends on the resource.
I believe it is even in canada's constitution that the resources belong to the province. But because the Supreme court of canada ON/QC is stacked in ON/QC favor it is nothing more than a kangaroo court with 3 judges from ON 3 from QC and the remaining 3 from the colonies of ON/QC.
That is why the fishery is owned and controled by Ottawa in contravention of foundation of canda as a federation as well it is highly probably that is why the SCC ON/QC ruled in favor of not renegotiating the Upper Churchill contract.
So what is the solution seeing as our political system is systemically flawed in favor of ON/QC?
By voting you are just confirming your acceptance of being a colony of ON/QC and as such the sysem will never change and canda IMHO is doomed to fail.
The provinces need equality for canada to work or else it is doomed to failure.

One bilingual SCC judge from each of the provinces and territories.
