Where's Eugene when you need him?

Once there was this wonderful man named Eugene Forsey, who, as a native Newfoundlander and a scholar, would fire off a devastatingly simple and effective rebuttal whenever he saw something in a newspaper about Newfoundland and Labrador that was blatantly false.

Stuff like this:
On top of all this, tens of millions of dollars in royalties pour in each year to the federal treasury thanks to Newfoundland and Labrador’s nickel, iron ore and oil and gas resources. The federal government gets about 90 per cent of the royalties from Voisey’s Bay.
Wrong, Joan.

Wrong, Ryan.

As usual.

But, hey, don't let the facts get in the way of your separatist fantasies.

Joan as in Joan Forsey?

The Senator must be spinning in his grave or looking down from heaven and wondering where he went wrong.
