"We can't allow things that are inaccurate to stand." — The Word of Our Dan, February 19, 2008.

From the proceedings of the Bow-Wow Parliament of May 21, 2002:

MR. WILLIAMS: As an aside, and even more important, on the way through they destroyed the credibility and the reputation of emergency physicians in this Province, people who do an admirable job are very, very competent people who take care of the health and safety of our children in this Province. They let go a damning condemnation on them, and the people in their department were involved. It should never have happened. They are open to lawsuits and they will be sued before it is all over. You mark my words.

Let’s deal with water export. Here is another great mistake of the Grimes government. All through last spring we heard about water export. We heard that bulk water was going to be the saviour. Bulk water was going to be exported from this Province, huge revenues were going to come in, and we were going to balance our budget on the back of bulk water. That is what we heard.

MR. E. BYRNE: Free tuition was what he said, wasn’t it?

MR. WILLIAMS: I believe he did say it. You are quite correct. It would pay for free tuition for our students in this Province.

MR. SULLIVAN: That got watered down after.

MR. WILLIAMS: It did get watered down. It certainly did get watered down. Do you know how it got watered down? Because the leader of this Province, the Premier of this Province, never bothered, never tried to find out, never checked, as to whether it was economically viable. He made the statement; he caused an uproar across the country. The Prime Minister got angry with him again, completely disgusted with him, and what happened? He pulled in his horns because he never checked to see if it was economically viable. What a statement to come from a Premier of a Province.

MR. E. BYRNE: Then he sent out his minister (inaudible).

MR. WILLIAMS: Then he did not go out and explain it himself. He sent his minster out to explain it. He would not stand up and be counted and take responsibility for what he did, which is typical of this government. Pass it off to health boards, pass it off to school boards, pass it off to Royal Commissions. Do not take any responsibility, do not show any leadership. That is the trademark of this government.

Fights with doctors.

The inadvertent humour of talking about watering down a water contract.

Hysterical to see how little has changed.
