    I don't think people will be jumping for joy.
    I can see Gary running the golf course, but the the others mentioned, I'm not so sure.

    Except for Oke, no names.....so we won't know who receives the government largesse.

    'Proudly Newfoundland!'...but not so much that we want our identities revealed.
