Big News Day

So, I'm listening to CBC radio and they have clips of Danny Williams' press conference announcing that we/us/the province will be developing the Lower Churchill. Not someone else for us. We're going to do it ourselves. Dear Jesus, thank you for Danny Williams. Now I don't know anything about hydro development, but I think it is amazing that someone finally says we can do this, we don't need anyone else. Add therefore, folks, we get the money from it. Yes, we have to put it in too but that has to happen with any investment. We're ready for this, Danny. Bring it forward, we're ready.

Then I surf over to the VOCM news website and there I read that Jim Bennett is quitting as leader of the Liberal party. Now, I''ve poked a bit of fun here about him before but I do feel bad for him. Either he really felt that he could make a difference for our province or maybe he felt he could be like his wife and become a powerful political figure, but either way he didn't do it. I feel bad because at least he tried and that was more than any of the other cowards in the provincial Liberal party did. A well-established Liberal could have run and probably would have beaten Mr. Bennett but none of them did and so they left him dangling out there for the media (and his fellow Liberals) to take smacks at him from time to time. So, good luck, Mr. Bennett and I will try to remember your political career as one in which at least you gave it a shot and that is more than can be said of some others around you.

Danny wants Harper to finance it with a loan guarantee.

That is not "doing it ourselves", folks.
