On Tuesday, in one of her typical displays of bluster and bravado, Premier Kathy Dunderdale said of her government’s dealings with Hydro-Quebec: “we had to develop a strategy that left them out of the equation,” …. “That’s what we’ve done and we’ve done it successfully and they can’t stand it.”
How very revealing!
That’s exactly what she and her government did (via Bill 29) to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, when they railroaded us into the Muskrat Falls disaster.
And we can’t stand it either: that is one of the many reasons why Dunderdale and her bevy of boneless wonders deserve to be booted out in the next election.
Finally, while I am no fan of Hydro-Quebec’s treatment of this province, I really have to wonder about the premier’s level of self-awareness when she accuses Hydro-Quebec of arrogance.
As one of the most arrogant premiers to inflict herself upon us since the reign of that odious little dictator, Joey Smallwood, our premier seems blissfully unaware of her own totally contemptuous and contemptible disregard for the people of this province.
