Train 'em early (XXI): Paul Davis

Paul Davis, newly minted trained seal for Topsail, with abundant help from trained seals for other districts, manages to not lose his voice in his stellar performance as maiden speaker on May 4th:

MR. DAVIS: Mr. Speaker, campaign candidates are afforded the opportunity not only to meet but also to listen to what is on the minds of residents. It is a very important aspect of election campaigns. There was one message that was heard so frequently that it was a level all to itself. That message is what I refer to as the respect factor, the support factor, and the absolute unprecedented backing that the people of Newfoundland and Labrador had for our leader, the Premier.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

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.

This confidence has also been evident in in-depth research polls, such as those conducted by Corporate Research Associates, and we heard these during the campaign. Their latest poll suggested that 93 per cent of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are satisfied with the job this government is doing today.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. DAVIS: The polling firm said satisfaction with the government is the highest recorded in Atlantic Canada in more than twenty years. Mr. Speaker, these results are remarkable. Our Premier and this government have made and continue to make a significant impact on the Province and its future.

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.
