    $227 million Dunderdale announced at the hospital last year. Now we have a water tank & some more site work. Marshall has let the people of the West Coast down. Granter has been silent on the issue. Joyce seems to be like a dog with a bone on the hospital but can't seem to get anything done. He's been the only voice but unfortunately, on the wrong side of the house. Time for this government to go. Coleman - not a snowball's chance in hell you'll get my vote.

    So disappointing another construction season will go by and nothing happening at the Corner Brook hospital site. What happens to all the money that was announced in this past year's budget for the new hospital? Does water/sewer and water storage tanks cost that much?

    So much for honour Mr. Marshall. Pittance work on site and more consulting... Jeesh... Be careful you don' t spend to much money there.. Say no to Coleman in by election and definite no to Vaughn Granter a useless individual in general election. I had enough of PC politics. Mr. Marshall as for you please disappear when you retire from politics.

    .....and next year they'll call tenders for light bulbs, and the year after that; door knobs....and the year after that.... At this rate, the hospital might be built by year 2042. It's terrible that up at Muskrat, they are burning thru $2 million every DAY! I bet the on-site first aid station is more state-of-the-art than what the residents of the west coast have access to......pity :-(
