From the VOCM BackTalk rally debriefing, which was, mercifully, hosted by Linda Swain and not Comrade Rowe, yet more snippets which makes you wonder... who's this "we" anyway?
Peter Whittle: The pictures that we wanted, we got, a lot of Newfoundlanders standing together supporting one message
Linda Swain: Was there an anti-Canada feeling there?
Whittle: There certainly was a lot of pink-white-and-greens flying out there at different times. For the most part the speeches were about asking to have confidence in Canada, we're Newfoundland-Canadians, we're Canadians, we happen to be Newfoundlanders as well.
