Paranoia (II)

From the proceedings of the Bow-Wow Parliament on Monday:
PREMIER WILLIAMS: Mr. Speaker, I am glad the hon. member opposite and her government are not representing the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. No wonder, no wonder we gave it all away when the hon. crowd opposite had government, Mr. Speaker. So she is going to write off three hundred for environmental liability, then she is going to write out a cheque for $500 million. Well I can tell you right now, that is not going to happen while we are in the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, because we do not believe in giveaways.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

PREMIER WILLIAMS: Mr. Speaker, what she fails to point out is in the appeal which was filed by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, that the judge, who is the hon. Gascogne, or whatever he is, Gascon or whatever he is, the Great Gatsby or whatever his name is, anyway, at the end of the day is in the Quebec Court, is obviously not too –

AN HON. MEMBER: (Inaudible).

PREMIER WILLIAMS: I do not care; I could not care about something like (inaudible).

The hon. judge in Quebec obviously has no time for Newfoundland and Labrador, and what he has done has gone beyond his constitutional competence. Because if you read the appeal, which was filed by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, he did not have the statutory or constitutional competence to do what he did, and he made palpable and overriding errors of fact. You can rely on him if you want to, I would not.
OK. Let’s take at face value the assertion by Great Lawyer that Quebec judges have it in for us.

Why, then, other than deliberately setting out to fail, would you launch a strategy in the Quebec courts to obtain some sort of relief, under the Quebec Civil Code, for the so-called Upper Churchill contract?

And if you sincerely do wish to succeed in that Upper Churchill case, and yet also sincerely think that Quebec judges have it in for you, does ridiculing a French surname, and inciting old ethnic divisions, help, or hinder your cause?

What a Great Lawyer that Danny Williams is.

What a Great, Great Lawyer.
