St. Anthony: integral part of the province
CBC Corner Brook today reports that Trevor Taylor has announced a $6-million “Regional Civic Centre” for the Northern Peninsula, to be built in St. Anthony.
Meanwhile, the province's so-called “committment” to the Mealy Mountain Auditorium project in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, as usual for anything to do with Labrador, is dependent on federal funding.
“It’s high time that Labradorians, instead of feeling like someone else’s treasure trove, started feeling like an integral part of ourprovince. We cannot expect fair treatment from Ottawa if we don’t practise what we preach.”That was Danny Williams, on becoming leader of his party, on April 7, 2001.
How hollow it sounded then. How hollower it sounds with every passing day.
