From the CBC:
Newfoundland and Labrador's breast cancer inquiry could destroy the province's health care system if it runs too long, the justice minister has warned.In a functioning Parliamentary democracy, with respect for the rule of the law and the independence of the judiciary, such remarks would cost Jerome Kennedy, who is supposedly not only a lawyer, but supposedly a good one as well, his job.
In an unusual move, Jerome Kennedy phoned an open line program on VOCM radio on Friday afternoon to complain about the Cameron inquiry's costs, just a day after Premier Danny Williams used the phrase "witch hunt" to describe what he saw as "inquisitorial methods" at the inquiry.
But it's very clear that Jerome is only following orders, so in Danny Williams' Dannystan, don't expect things to follow the normal course of events.
Parliamentary democracy? Rule of law? Independent judiciary?
Smothered in their sleep by the modern-day Duplessiste regime that is, in its own way, emulating the absolute worst of Quebec nationalist thought.
Nope. In Dannystan, after five years, all too believable.
