Letters to the editor -
Picture this; a close family member of yours is going in for heart surgery.
He's in big trouble. It's a big risk, and there's a high chance he might not make it. The doctor is a very determined man, and he is going to work his hardest to save the patient.
He comes out to the waiting room, but after hours and hours of work, he's done it. He's saved the patient.
It took a lot, but he took someone on their deathbed and kept their life intact.
Now, imagine if you, the person waiting for the news, looked up at the doctor and said but what about the ugly scar you left?
Why did you take the veins from the legs?
Why didn't you make the incision this other way?
It's being completely rude and apathetic to the great job done by that man.
To me, it's like what Randy Simms has done this past week. Heaven forbid he focus on the many good things Danny Williams has done for the province, let alone the huge oil deal signed that day. Randy Simms has to go and find something to complain about.
Is this what talk-radio in this province amounts to?
Is it all just about complaining about the few bad things, when there are so many good things going on?
Yes, the fishery is in trouble, there's no denying it, but does it need to be brought up when Danny Williams is focusing on other areas that can help the province?
We have a great premier who, in my opinion, has done more than anyone else in helping this province. I don't want to sit idly by and have outsiders think that Randy Simms is speaking on behalf of me.
He's not, and he's not speaking on behalf of a lot of others as well.
Randy, you're not premier, and judging by how you'd seemingly focus on near-extinct industries while running the province, I dare say you should never run for the position either.
