Williams' forecast for province: mostly sunny

Premier Danny Williams is cautiously upbeat about the province's economic future, even in the face of a looming recession.

Williams said that's because of a combination of strong natural resources revenues and his government's sound management of the economy.

"If we do, in fact, get into a deep and long recession, I think our province will be as good or better off than any of the other provinces," he said.

"The island will be affected, and transportation costs will be affected at some point throughout this, however I think we'll be fine."
The Telegram, Everton McLean reporting, January 17, 2009:
Premier Danny Williams went into the first ministers meetings in Ottawa Friday with a lot ideas about how to help this province and the country work through the economic downturn. He said he was pleased to get a chance to voice all his ideas and concerns.


"I pointed out to the federal government that the resource industries in Newfoundland and Labrador are the ones that are going to be affected. We've seen it in the forestry industry, we've seen it in the fishery, we've seen it in mining and we've also seen some affect on the oil and gas side."

Must have been a really bad December if he's already talking in the past tense... "We've seen it.." etc.
