Voice of the Cabinet Minister

Boy, it would be really embarrasing if you were a provincial cabinet minister, and you called into an open line show like No Names Please's, during CRA sweeps month, and you basically just stammered through reading straight out of the press release you issued on Wednesday.

We would all be really embarrassed, wouldn't we, for any cabinet minister that was given marching orders to go out during CRA sweeps month and flood the open line shows with HappyNews (too bad you couldn't get on today, Jackman, try again), and this was the best that she or he could come up with. It doesn't project confidence or competence at all.

It would be emarrasing, too, for a radio host who didn't catch a cabinet minister out on such nonsense and amateurish behaviour.

Yip. It would be embarrasing.

That's not embarrassing.

Embarrassing would be NNP ridiculing the Liberals for not pointing out the smelter was Roger Grimes' doing the day after the release went out from the opposition and the day after it was carried by every major media outlet.

Maybe he was expecting a brown envelope.

Embarrassing would NNP and Tony the Tory engaged in a brown nose contest to see which one of them could shine ODP's knob the brightest with all sorts of idiotic claims about how ODP had really delivered the whole Voisey's Bay thingy.

Edward, Edward, Edward. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, in reviewing the latest geotechnical data, including gravimetry and magnetometry, geologists at Our Dear University have revised the geological history of the Voisey's Bay deposit, and have proven conclusively that Danny Williams put the ore in the ground in the first place.
