Train 'em early (V): Kathy Goudie

On April 19, 2004, Kathy Goudie, also sticking with the Great Businessman theme, inadvertantly says some other things that are highly amusing with the benefit of hindsight, on a go-backwards basis. Not also the early attestation of a breach of the no-names rule:

The tourism industry is dependant on small business and innovation and our government has committed a $1 million budget to be led by one of the most successful business people in this Province, Premier Danny Williams.

Mr. Speaker, this is a pivotal time in Newfoundland and Labrador. Our political stripe has only changed twice since Confederation and each case has meant a shift in direction for our Province. In the past, our government, the PC Party, has responded to the 500,000 people in Newfoundland and Labrador by bringing in policies that call for greater accountability in the way we govern. We set up the Public Service Commission, the Public Tender Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Financial Administration Act, the Auditor General’s Office, and a host of other measures designed to open up government and make it more responsive to the people.

Mr. Speaker, once again, in only a few short months, our government, under the leadership of Danny Williams, has responded to the people. On March 30, Minister Loyola Sullivan, presented a fair Budget which, I believe, will put our Province on the right track again.
