Yes, his first squeak should be

Mr. Davis concludes his maiden speech on Tuesday:
MR. DAVIS: Mr. Speaker, the people of the District of Topsail have placed their faith in me, and I am committed to working hard, working as part of this government, the best government –

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. DAVIS: - and working with this Premier, the best Premier –

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. DAVIS: - to make Newfoundland and Labrador better than it ever has been before.

Mr. Speaker, thank you very much.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. SPEAKER: Order, please!

MR. POLLARD: Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Before I begin, I would like to congratulate the Member for Topsail for an outstanding job in his maiden speech.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. POLLARD: It was well delivered, well prepared, and well written. It is indicative of the kind of team we have on this side of the House, Mr. Speaker. We have finesse players, we have goal scorers, we have checkers, we have grinders, we have spark plugs, and the depth - we have an awful lot of depth, Mr. Speaker. In fact, our seventh line is just as good as our first line.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. POLLARD: Mr. Speaker, we have a captain who can do it all: skate, shoot, score, anything.

Gotta love the hockey metaphors and the relentless self-praise.

But ya gotta wonder: was Pollard trying to convince us or them of their greatness?
