Danny Williams addresses the St. John’s Board of Trade on Muskrat Falls and people come out of their rat holes and crap all over him for exercising his right to express his opinion.
These are mostly the hypocrites who were running around dragging on his garments hoping to receive a miracle for a personal need, i.e. like a juicy appointment when he was premier. It’s the same bunch who were yelling support for Muskrat Falls when Danny was premier.
This excludes people like Yvonne Jones and Lorraine Michael, who don’t have sense enough to come in out of the cold. They just yell for the sake of yelling. Interesting to note that I don’t hear Yvonne saying how bad the Muskrat Falls development is anymore now that her future leader, Dean MacDonald, has come out in support of it.
I can understand the frustration being expressed by Lorraine and Yvonne, as they don’t have a business background and are not capable of understanding the long-term benefits from a megaproject such as Muskrat Falls. It’s unfortunate when a person can’t see beyond the length of their nose.
Hundreds of jobs and new industry will be the results of this project. Maybe I will have to pay a few extra dollars for power, but Muskrat Falls will mean my grandchildren will not have to travel around the world to find a job. They will now be able to stay home in Newfoundland with family — the dying wish of every true Newfoundlander.
I salute Danny Williams and the government of Newfoundland for having the foresight to go with this project.
