Original thought alarm

Ryan Cleary reports for Atlantic Business Magazine:
“Labrador West is going to be the Fort McMurray of the East,” says Labrador Affairs Minister John Hickey.

The economy of Lake Melville/Happy Valley-Goose Bay, a hub in terms of government, health, and transportation services, is equally as robust, he says. “One thing I don’t have to worry about as an MHA is people coming to me looking for a work. Anybody who wants a job can work.

Hickey takes the boast a step further: “The future of this province lies in the development of the resources of Labrador,” he says.

That kind of thinking began when the Williams government took power in the fall of 2003. “For far too long, the people, resources and potential of Labrador have been ignored and excluded from decision making processes of the province,” read the Progressive Conservative book of pre-election promises. “We can no longer tolerate this atmosphere of exclusion, and we must recognize that Labrador will play a pivotal role in the future success of this province.”
Amazing! Astounding! Unbelievable! (Literally!)

No one in Newfoundland, in the two and a half centuries that Labrador has been politically attached to it, has ever thought, even for a second, that the future is somehow attached to the development of the resources of Labrador?


That only started seven short years ago?

What else did Danny do in the fall of 2003? Say "Let there be light?"
