Ray Guy, seer
Ray Guy, writing sometime in the 1980s:
That same defensive reaction to any real or imagined criticism or slight or threat wafting down the Gulf of St. Lawrence has snowballed. The dimmest of our politicians — let alone Brian Peckford — can now latch on to it and be as secure of waxing fat as a maggot lodged in the carcass of a beached whale. Even a native son has got to think twice before he questions the desperate sort of patriotism that has given us the lightest air, the hardest rocks and the wettest water in the world.
- Ray Guy's Best, Breakwater, 1987, p. 98
