Pease in a pod (XVI)

Strict constructionists will note the absence here of a question mark, but Mr. Baird rose to respond all the same. ”Mr. Speaker,” he moaned, “the leader of the Liberal Party never misses an occasion to run down Canada.”

“Ohh!” the Liberals moaned back.

“You’re not Canada!” contended one opposition voice.

PREMIER WILLIAMS: I can tell the Leader of the Opposition that I am not the one who quotes in the House of Commons. He refers to comments that are made by the Leader of Opposition when he supports positions that are anti-Newfoundland and Labrador. As a matter of fact, I heard him quote you in the House of Commons just over a month ago. So, it would be nice if you were on our side. That would certainly help, for starters.

PREMIER WILLIAMS: Mr. Speaker, the level of betrayal of the hon. member opposite to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador never ceases to astound me.

She is asking today that we release the legal opinions that could possibly be used, if an action is commenced by CF(L)Co, and give them to Hydro-Quebec so that they can prepare their case against Newfoundland and Labrador and the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. Absolutely not!

MS JOHNSON: Mr. Speaker, I have explained this several times over and over, and somebody said to me on the weekend, they wonder who the Leader of the Opposition works for: Is it the Quebec government or is it Abitibi? They could not figure it out.


MS JOHNSON: Her question certainly speaks to why that person asked me that.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Leader of the Opposition.

MS JONES: It is typical of the government opposite, questioning your patriotism in this Province, Mr. Speaker. How dare you speak against us? How dare you challenge us? Well, Mr. Speaker, if the Minister of Environment was doing her job no one in this Province would have to ask her a question.
