Trust and Confidence petition

Mr Steve Saunders has taken it upon himself to start and collect signatures on a petition to be presented in the House of Commons to have Mr Harper to keep his promise to the people of Newfoundland Labrador with respect to removing 100% 0f Non-Renewable resource revenues from being clawed back through the equalization formula against health and social transfers.

A promise he made on 6 six different occasions in two separate elections in writing to the premiers of NL and Sask.

We the undersigned residents of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador would like to draw attention of the House of Commons that during the last federal election the current Prime minister promised to exclude Non- Renewable Resources from the Equalization formula. To date this has not been done therefore we the petitioners call upon the House of Commons to restore the Trust and Confidence of Newfoundland and Labrador by removing Non-Renewable resources from the equalization Formula.

Mr Steve Saunder can be contacted at or by phone at 709-687-6400 if you feel passionately about your home province and it's remaining a part of canada, because if Steve breaks this promise we will have no other choice but to leave and go it alone IMHO because otherwise we will be forever subservient to ON/QU and now Alberta which got to where it is today because Non-Renewables weren't clawed back when Equalization was incepted. Marc Lalond said no other province would ever be allowed to do what Alberta did and become a have province hence the claw back clause which was added to the equalization formula.

The petitions are available at all of the town offices throughout NL be sure to stop by and sign. They need to be signed and collected for presentation in the HOC by June 5.
