Moya Greene's recent report on NL's economic future calls for tax increases, service cuts, and privatization. Our political panel shared their thoughts. Lorraine Michael is the former leader of the provincial New Democratic Party, Roger Grimes is a former premier for the Liberals, and Sandy Collins is a former MHA for Terra Nova and cabinet minister for the PC government. Author Emily Hepditch's new novel tells how a group of back-country hikers set out for the adventure of a lifetime, but ended up separated and "Alone on the Trail" in Gros Morne. And a rescue dog named Maximum is at, well, maximum capacity and looking for someone to help him lose HALF his body weight. We spoke with Exploits Valley SPCA volunteer Sarah MacLeod.
