A resident of Corner Brook says he couldn’t believe Mayor Charles Pender’s response to Oceanex pulling its marine service out of Corner Brook.

“To me, he more or less said ‘so what?’ during his radio interview last week.

“Mayor Pender made it sound like it was of little consequence to the city.

“Doesn’t he realize Corner Brook can’t afford to lose any jobs, any business or any activity at that port or in the city? He and his council are in office to try and turn things around. But comments regarding that situation didn’t sound like that’s their focus.”


A Corner Brook resident figures it might be a good year to celebrate the history of Corner Brook’s West Street.

“It’s all set up for it,” he says.

“We have much of it covered with gravel to fill the potholes.

“It should be just like it was in 1920s when it was used by horse and buggy,” he said.


A reader made this call recently:

“I am sick to my stomach from this government and what it’s trying to do with Bill 29.

“Now they’re standing up and going to be transparent after Muskrat Falls was pushed through?

“Mr. Marshall should have stood up and voted against this the first time. Where was he then? Does he think he’s going to change the world in three months?” the caller wondered.


Another month is on its last legs and now is a good time to see what the Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting for April.

The month begins from the first to the third sunny, then flurries and cool. The fourth to the seventh should bring rain turning sunny and remaining cool.

The period from the eighth to the 12th looks to hold showers and turning warm. The 13th to the 16th will bring rain turning to snow, then sunny and cool. The days from the 17th to the 22nd promise rain, then sprinkles and mild.

The month will end from the 23rd to the 30th with showers and cool.

Not much of an improvement over March, it seems.
