    Btw was David Archer elected? Was Mrs. Adams elected? These are rhetorical questions. They are quite unhelpful and foolish for sure. Though a bit late gotta just show how biased and retarded your headlines were when the previous Governor took certain steps to FIX the NDP neglects and when the new Governor arrived how the NDP refused him being sworn in the house. Do hope this manner of speak does not rear its ugly head ever again. Oh and if NDP don't want the Queens handouts don't take it be they grants or gifts, because that sign in RT is rolled and dolled in hypocracy.

    he can tell them to answer their phone or at least provide the correct channels of communication to the
    governors office. that would be grand. someone needs to discreetly tell governor jaspert just what has
    gone on, just the truth. but the channels of communication are not there.
