Columnist Margaret Wente’s article in the notoriously anti-Newfoundland Globe and Mail, “Ashamed to Be Canadian”, which declared “the hunt is indefensible on any grounds -- a giant welfare cheque, written in blood.” Ms. Wente was born in Chicago and moved to Toronto with her family when she was in her teens, and eating Chilean beans in her coffee at Starbucks is likely as close as she’ll get to the tactile grittiness of rural life.

Q. How do you tell the Newfoundlanders when you get to heaven?

A. They're the ones that want to go home.


Something about this place, this people, this culture. No matter how far you stray, you're bound to this rugged Rock with an invisible rope that draws you back. That rope can also strangle you. From Scarborough to Sacramento to Sweden, Newfoundland expatriates are crippled by a poorly-understood phenomena known as post-rock-partum depression.

Are Whales Being Loved to Death?

One man’s ecological treasure is another man’s quarry. One man’s old growth forest as pine marten refuge is another man’s prime stand of timber. Our resources are in demand, there is value in harvesting them, there is a cost in harvesting the. Equally, there is a value and cost in preserving them. When does which take precedent? How do we balance the demands of a resource-dependent economy with the need to preserve one of the world’s most precious
environments?

"Newfoundland Humor" has constantly been a contraversal topic of discussion among Newfoundlanders. Some see these jokes as degrading and a misrepresented portrayal of our education and inteligence. Others take these jokes with a grain of salt as they believe they should, a joke and nothing more. We want to hear your comments regarding this issue. Do you believe the englishman, frenchman, and a newfoundlander belong? Should they remain part of our culture? Or should we banish these insulting tales. Would this produce a more prominant respectable image to our neighboring provinces and countries?
