Moley moley mole

In Our Dear Scrum on Wednesday morning, the NDP Premier of Dannyland said:
We make a huge contribution to Canada, I’ve said it time and time again, through our natural resources, and through everything we do.

The Government of Canada has to deal on a national basis. Y’know, there’s a lot of interesting discussion of where provinces like Quebec or Alberta or other provinces, y’know, should be dealing in international negotiations. It’s always been the position of the Premiers of the country that they should have some representation there and should be heard. However, y’know, the Government of Canada is the one that has to properly deal in NAFTA. So if in fact there’s a dispute, well that can go both ways. So if there’s a breach or a violation by the Americans, well, then, of course, then if the compensation gets paid, then does that compensation then filter down to the provinces that are affected? Easiest thing to do is have them deal on just a national government basis.
Shortly thereafter, the notional NDP leader went to the mic, where she succinctly re-iterated what her Premier had just said:
I think that we give a lot to this country. The resources that we have here in this province benefit the country on a whole in many, many ways. And it’s part of being a federation, there’s no doubt about that. And when you’re dealing with an issue that has an international connection to it, as this one does, then that is what a federation does.
It's almost as if Our Dear Internal Talking Points are getting leaked to the NDP opposition offices. Quick! Call the OCIO!
