Hey buddy! take the tiller

It's not hard to see why Himself is so reticent to let His Dear Speeches stand on the written record anywhere.

Fortunately for the Anti-sphere, the Throne Speech can't be made to disappear down the memory hole.

Throne Speech 2009:

Captaining Our Own Ship

As we move forward to forge new and stronger relationships for the century to come, it is essential that the concerns and aspirations of all members of the federation be taken into account. Unfortunately, Newfoundland and Labrador is not convinced that the current Federal administration, having ignored our best interests when developing domestic policy, will do any better in representing our best interests when developing foreign policy.

If the current Federal Government is not prepared to represent the best interests of provinces like ours, then we as a Province will protect our best interests ourselves. To lower tariff barriers to our exports while safeguarding our fish stocks and securing markets for our seal products, we will speak up on our own behalf on the international stage and work to effect progressive agreements that take our best interests fully into account.

Canadian Press, today:

Bloody images of sealing have helped spur the European Union ban - a move Canada is challenging before the World Trade Organization.

"Ottawa is doing what it can," Premier Danny Williams of Newfoundland and Labrador said in an interview. "I know the prime minister has spoken with people at the highest levels."
