Newfoundland: Ball's deal with banks just "Liberal Party business as usual"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

If polls can be believed, the Liberals are poised to wipe out the Conservatives in the next Newfoundland election.

Dwight Ball, the provincial Liberal leader, is bragging that his party's six-figure debt has finally been wiped out.

Except the way the debt was "paid off" isn't much to brag about:

Three banks just agreed to write it off.

I wonder what, if anything, they'll get in return if Ball gets elected.

For the Liberal Party, this secret backroom deal is just business as usual. What does that tell you about them?

Rex Murphy had a telling word about politics in Newfoundland back in the days of Joey Smallwood. He noted that from time to time people would assure him there was at least one honest politician in the place. His reply was, “That may be so but I have yet to meet that person.”

And they are making a big deal about someone making payment for Duffy to write off his debt ? Isn’t that the same sort of thing here? It stinks and I think it should at least be investigated for wrong doing. We need some answers here.

I’m sure glad you’re out there Ezra, chipping away at all the lies and BS that is the lefty structure, and naming the names of the players perpetrating the scam.
A Canadian literary hero of mine, William Gairdner, has been referred to as both ‘gimlet-eyed’ and ‘Argus-eyed’ – I had to look them both up – and I think those descriptive names could be applied to you also. Like Mr. Gairdner, you’ve given an invaluable service to this country in exposing the rot.
I sleep better at night knowing you’re on the job.
Chip, chip, chip. Chip, chip chip…

Deborah Graupner said: “I’m wondering if this “write off” shouldn’t be considered a political contribution?? This can’t be legal.” Hmm. Wasn’t it the Chretien Liberals who banned Corporate Donations in favour of the per vote subsidy? Mind you, this is provincial, so Liberals feel they can damn well do as they please…………….

Yeah! Why name the banks…obviously they lean towards the Liberals. If he becomes premier, he can return the favor & no one will be able to say that this is a conflict of interest. If I knew what banks wrote off the debts & I was dealing with one of those banks, I would pull out any investments I have with them.

Sorry – I meant this can’t be legal.

I’m wondering if this “write off” shouldn’t be considered a political contribution?? This can’t legal.

Major conflict of interest here, in fact I call it criminal. I do hope that Newfoundland / Labrador watch this. After all its their future at stake here.

“Hey Mr. Bank.. What about my debt?” Good luck with that one unless you are a true red dyed Liberal, perhaps……
