Mr. Speaker, do your job (XVIII)

From the Bow-Wow Parliament on Tuesday, the following from the latest trained seal to be elected to the Trained Seal Club.

It's sad enough that the trained seals feel obliged to out-do one another in flattery of Comrade Napoleon... but how sad must your existence be when you feel obliged to flatter Tom Marshall?
MR. DAVIS: Mr. Speaker, as a candidate, what more could any person, an aspiring politician, what more could I ever ask for, what more could I ever hope to experience, than an opportunity to work alongside with, and learn from, a leader with such vision, such drive, such determination, such ability, such passion and such dedication?

Mr. Speaker, the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador is truly blessed to have a Premier of the calibre of Premier Williams.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. DAVIS: As well, Mr. Speaker, the strong results of this by-election speak volumes to the great job this government is doing in leading and governing Newfoundland and Labrador, and to the confidence that residents have in the leadership of Premier Williams.


Since 2003, Newfoundland and Labrador has undergone a drastic transformation. The Williams government took over this Province’s Administration with an ambitious but achievable vision: one of self-reliance, one to provide a vibrant future for the Province and the generations to come. However, given the economic conditions of this Province seven years ago, it was obvious to most that there was not going to be a quick and simple fix to turn things around.


It was just over a year ago when Minister Tom Marshall proudly announced that Newfoundland and Labrador achieved have status. This marked an historic milestone in this Province’s history, confirming us as a powerful contributor to the federation.


An unprecedented investment of more than $158 million in Labrador, through the Northern Strategic Plan, building on the Williams government’s commitment and record investments to foster a bright and prosperous future for Labrador.
