Dictionary of Quotations

"The Prime Minister's Ontario cap effectively limits the maximum benefit of the offshore resource to $452 per person in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. After that, every dollar will be clawed back by Ottawa, no matter how many billions the offshore resource turns out to be worth." — Stephen Harper, November 4, 2004

"The premier says that the agreement he thought he had reached did not include a cap or a reference to a fiscal capacity. It did not include any linkage to the fiscal capacity of other provinces. It did not include a timeframe. In fact it specifically excluded it." — Loyola Hearn. Same day.

"The responses from Mr. Martin are clearly not as definitive as some of those from Mr. Harper and Mr. Layton. This is disappointing from the provincial government’s perspective..." — Danny Williams, January 17, 2006

"I'm a Conservative. I'm a Progressive Conservative. I think my politics (are) quite obvious. I certainly wouldn't stand up here and state that I'm supporting the Liberal Party of Canada to form the next government. But I don't think it helps for the premier to actually get down in the trenches in the nitty gritty of an election campaign. My member is (Conservative) Norm Doyle, and of course I support him fully." — Rob Antle, quoting Danny Williams, in the St. John's Telegram, November 29, 2005
