How not to "go it alone" (III)

A truly bizarre, polling-period "exclusive" in today's astonishingly deferential piece by Dave Bartlett. In fact, so bizarre, it's hard to know where to begin.

How about near the end?
Williams said Ottawa will come on side eventually before the project is built, whether it is the current government or a subsequent one.

But Williams said if that doesn't happen, he's still willing to have the province go it alone.
"Still willing"?

When has Danny Williams ever been "willing to have the province go it alone" on the so-called Lower Churchill project, under any definition of "go it alone" that has not involved one or both of:
(a) a federal loan guarantee to build the power plant at Gull Island Rapids; and
(b) a federal subsidy to build a transmission line from Labrador to Newfoundland.
