Conservative householder a multi-level bust

Someone on the mainland decided to design a campaign householder for the federal Conservatives.

Pretty picture.

Nice little headline there.


You can tell the person is not from the province where it got dropped this past week.  There are two rather obvious  - and related - problems.  See if you can guess what the problem is.


The name of the province is Newfoundland and Labrador and that’s Problem One.

Bigger problem is that in Labrador – where this thing is going as well as on the island – there is considerable opposition to the project because it is all about power for Newfoundland…

and shag-all for Labrador.

Stunned enough that the provincial Connies conned their federal Connie cousins into backing something that only 3% of people think should be a major priority for the province.

Stunneder still is the fact that the Pavement Putin of the Permafrost and his crowd are attacking Liberal Todd Russell’s opposition to the project as if that was somehow going to work against him come polling day.

Stunnedest of all, the Harper Bunker drops this little gem across the province, especially in Labrador where it will go over like the proverbial fart in church.  Todd Russell will be laughing all the way to the polls.

There are no wounds as painful as self-inflicted ones.

Everyone here is wrong on the name of the province...it's The Province of Newfoundland and Sometimes Labrador.

Hello Ed. Nice catch. You might add that the photo doesn't show Muskrat Falls. It's not the Gull Island Rapids either. I'm guessing the river isn't even the Churchill. It might actually be in Labrador, but I wouldn't bet on that. yours, Michael Johansen, North West River, Labrador

@Michael: Good catch. I have no way of knowing what river it is but I'll take your word for it.

It really is a multi-level fail.

It's the Pinware - looking upstream from the highway bridge. A very familiar scene for tourists. Perhaps someone was, how you say this, just visiting?
