Beautiful pics, thanks.
I visited your fair province last summer and wished I'd never left.

Thanks very much for your comment Shane! There is indeed a great amount of beauty all over the province of Newfoundland & Labrador. I hope to capture much more of it in years to come.

Best regards.

I visited last summer but never got out of St.John's but saw much while flying over it on a sunny day.
I was going cross country and wanted to start in St.John's and make my way back to BC. Only planned on staying in SJs for 5 days but ended up there for 18 days............I didn't want to leave. Such a beautiful, cultured city and the people were so warm and welcoming.......a refreshing change from Vancouverites.
In many ways I wish I had thrown causion to the wind and never left.

Hey Shane, sounds like you got hooked on the place. Lots to offer here, and in the whole province. BC and Vancouver are astounding. I spent time there years ago, and thought it was a fantastic place for its many attractions, not the least of which is the incredible natural scenery. Hope you make it back to the rock some day. Best regards!

I'm certainly hoping to.
Loved the place and the people. Would move out of BC if I could but o'well.
Hey........i've always been curious so I guess I might as well ask you. What was ths status of Labrador before 1949? It wasn't part of NFLD was it? Was it part of Quebec, a territory like the Yukon, or completely administered by Ottawa?
I'm a bit of a political junkie and I have always been curious exactly what it's status was.
Thanks, Shane

Hi Shane, good question, and others will know much more specifics than I can answer at this moment. I just copied a bit of quick info from Wikipedia about Labrador here below (but there is a blog all about Labrador issues called labradore.blogspot.com, an excellent political and Labrador issues blog. I know Quebec does not legally have any real claim to Labrador, however, some maps apparently still show a pre 1927 boundary favoring Quebec..

Here's the Wikipedia bit:

"The border between Labrador and Canada was set March 2, 1927, after a tortuous five-year trial. In 1809 Labrador had been transferred from Lower Canada to Newfoundland, but the landward boundary of Labrador had never been precisely stated.[4] Newfoundland argued it extended to the height of land, but Canada, stressing the historical use of the term "Coasts of Labrador", argued the boundary was 1 statute mile (1.6 km) inland from the high-tide mark. As Canada and Newfoundland were separate Dominions, but both members of the British Empire, the matter was referred to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (in London), which set the Labrador boundary mostly along the coastal watershed. One of Newfoundland's conditions for joining Confederation in 1949 was that this boundary be entrenched in the Canadian constitution. While this border has not been formally accepted by the Quebec government, the Henri Dorion Commission (Commission d'étude sur l'intégrité du territoire du Québec) concluded in the early 1970s that Quebec no longer has a legal claim to Labrador."
