Despatches from Dannystan (I)

Roy MacGregor makes another of Canada's sub-National Newspaper's cursory and shallow flying visits to Dannystan, and reports:
Newfoundland and Labrador sources say Williams will need federal help in his new battle against the expansion plans of Hydro-Québec. The energy giant has recently struck an agreement that could result in a $10-billion deal to gain significant control over New Brunswick Power, and there has been talk of a similar arrangement with Prince Edward Island.

It's hard to tell who is deluding themselves more here: the "sources" who imagine that there is any way that the federal government could, let alone would, intervene in the NB-Quebec deal, or Mr. MacGregor, for giving such nonsense any credence at all.

Funnier than that is the phrase "could result in a $10-billion deal to gain significant control over New Brunswick Power". [Emphasis added]

I guess ownership is significant control but why use a euphemisim, there Roy when the English language has a perfectly good word for exactly what will happen.

Ya gotta love these safari journalists, though. At least Roy is consistently out of touch with reality.
