I feel your editorial hit the nail on the head.

...and then there's those bloody cucumbers and $22,000.000.00 dow the drain. And who can forget the arrogant trip to Boston and his tipping the limo driver $50.00, all the while sucking on a Churchilian cigar as large as his ego. If you can find Charlie Power ask him about cabinet meetings with Peckford.

There is a direct line between the prosperity that Newfoundland and Labrador is currently enjoying and the actions of Brain Peckford, John Crosbie and Brain Mulroney. I apologize to all the naysayers out there but it happens to be true. Good for the Editor for pointing this out. When the Justin Trudeau bandwagon rides into to town on the coattails of his father’s legacy, I hope that the Editor is just as diligent in point out that for this Province that legacy is one of denial of any right to such prosperity.

There are some significant pivotal points in our Modern History. Joining Canada under Joey Smallwood is indisputably a pivotal point or game changer for NL. The Atlantic Accord under Brian Peckford was a pivotal point game changer for NL as well. Repatriation of the Constitution was also a pivotal point for Canada. No other Premier has had this level of impact on changing the future of the NL people. Wither you love them or hate them is no longer the issue – they are now History. Our Brian did change the course of NL politics making it better for all future generations. Give credit where it is due.

It should be remembered that it was Brian Peckford's Atantic Accord that had a $2,000,000,000 cheque written into it. Too bad other premiers didn't collect on it. If they had, they would have stayed in power for another term or two. Good on you, Brian for putting it in there, and good on you Danny, for realizing Ottawa's "forgetfulness."
