PICTOU, N.S. — Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams says he is looking forward to finding out why his name comes up in six documents WikiLeaks plans to release later this week.
Williams says he only found out that he is mentioned in the documents earlier today.
He says he doesn’t know what the references concerning him are about and is curious.
Williams is mentioned in four documents sent by the U.S. consulate in Halifax and in two others sent by the U.S. embassy in Ottawa between October 2003 and February 2005.
The documents have not been made public.
Williams is quitting politics Friday after seven years as premier.
