Good thing that John Crosbie isn't calling the shots

The Ceeb reported on July 28, 2007:
[John] Crosbie, a former federal and provincial cabinet minister, did not mince words on Friday when speaking about the government's motivations [with regards to SWGC].

"There appears to be political motivation in this whole situation, and the desire of the premier and one of his principal ministers to shine in their own districts," Crosbie said.
In follow-on coverage of the kerfuffle, Rob Antle of the Quebec Daily Newspaper reported:
John Crosbie has every right to his opinions, but his days in politics are over and he no longer gets to call the shots, Premier Danny Williams said Tuesday.


"Mr. Crosbie is a citizen of Newfoundland and Labrador," Williams said. "He has an opinion, and he's entitled to it. From our perspective, we're the government, and we've made the decision as to what we're going to do here.

"Mr. Crosbie had his day in government, and he made his decisions in that time - that was a long time ago. Now we are the government and we are going to do what we think is in the best interests of rural Newfoundland and Labrador, and that's exactly what we're doing here."
