Premier Joseph Smallwood of Newfoundland lashed out at his critics Friday, calling them “liars, filthy liars.”
Addressing the annual meeting of the Corner Brook Women’s Liberal Association, the premier said liars were responsible for reports that the Newfoundland government had asked the federal government to delay the start of a proposed national park at Bonne Bay for three years.
