So how's that Abitibi expropriation play going anyway? (II)

Not all that well, actually:
MS JONES: Mr. Speaker, in addition to that now that the government has expropriated the former mill and the people of the Province are responsible for its upkeep and monitoring costs I ask them if they can provide to us an update on what the future plan will be for that mill and the associated assets in Grand Falls-Windsor?
MS DUNDERDALE: Mr. Speaker, when it was discovered that we had inadvertently expropriated the mill, our first thought was to return the mill to AbitibiBowater. Because they were already in bankruptcy protection we were not able to do that. The law prevented us from doing that.

it gets worse.

Not only did they expropriate stuff they wanted to leave with Abitibi, but they also neglected to expropriate stuff they wanted to take.

Like all that land the Stephenville mill was on? Abitibi's, still.
