NB vs NL

ODP makes an astonishing statement in his Telegram year-ender:
The proposed Lower Churchill hydroelectric development did hit a number of snags this year, but Williams said he always knew it would be a challenging project to pull off.

He said there are still environmental issues, aboriginal rights and financing hurdles.

"(The province is) doing so well on the financial side that we're going to be actually in a financial position for the first time ever in our history to be able to fund the Lower Churchill ... ourselves," said the premier.
No markets, no transmission route, no agreement with the Innu, no environmental approval... but We are now able to fund Our imaginary hydro project Sinn Fein?

There you have the key difference between Danny Williams and Shawn Graham in how they approach state-owned energy corporations.

Shawn Graham wants to use NB Hydro to halve his province's debt.

Danny Williams is planning to use NALCO(R) to double his.

And that, my friends, is why we refer to the sawed-off, hammered-down little despot as Autonomy Williams.
Because he can say, and does say, that we will go it alone, with money from Ottawa. Some might see that as hypocritical, or talking out of both sides of the mouth. But not for Autonomy Williams, no sir, not here, in Dannystan.
Strong, proud, determined, to go it alone.
On Ottawa's dime.
Go, Danny, Go.
Please, just, go.
