Right on cue...
...the guy who used to say that Newfoundland should leave Canada because of equalization says Newfoundland should leave Canada because it doesn't get equalization any more. Exhibit 3,244 in the Newfoundland Separatwits: Heads, They Win, Tails, Federalism Loses.
Go ahead. Raise your PWG in Newfoundland (not Labrador) Ryan.
And while you're at it, answer these:
What is the federal government's "take" of the offshore? And how does it "take" it?
How much more could the oil be "ours" as an independent country, than it already is?
How would independence impact the so-called "upper Churchill" contract? In particular, how would it change geography? And why do you assume that Labrador would join your Pinkwhiteandgreenian Revolution?
What's stopping you — other than the rules of supply and demand, and the dictates of geography, neither of which would be suspended by separation — from instituting your so-called "Lower Churchill" plan now? (And see above re your Labrador assumption.)
And quoting yourself to back up your argument? Really — you and the rest of the separatist crew (both of you) are going to have to do better than intellectual (in the loose sense of the term) onanism (in the almost-literal sense.)
