"confirms the value of the decision made years ago by the government to insist on being equity partners in the development of our oil industry" Thank you Brian Peckford! Good job! Tenacity, has been trademarked by our former Premier who caused Mobil/Murphy to sucessfully sue (NAFTA Article 1106) our country for an as yet undisclosed award. Bullheaded, mulish, pertinacious pursuit of an agenda; Tenacity gaves us our own R&D crown corporation. Focus, what the old-timers call blinkered, a narrow, fixed attention to some aspects and ignoring others; Focus that is fuzzy on sustainability. Understanding your strengths is ok, but nothing compared to respecting your weaknesses (i.e. a superstar poker player, with a low stack, i. e. our super-tenacious, dirt-poor government) and downright dogged determination; Dog (Slang) A person regarded as unattractive or uninteresting./Something of inferior or low quality./An investment that produces a low return or a loss. tr.v., dogged, dog·ging, dogs. 1.To track or trail persistently: "Danny's legacy is still dogging his old lackeys in government and the private sector." 2.To hold or fasten with a mechanical device: "The doors of democracy were dropped into place and dogged down with Bill 29 to give the ship of government full watertight secrecy as required." Some fitting doggy idioms: dog it - To fail to expend the effort needed to do or accomplish something. Go to the dogs - To go to ruin; degenerate. Put on the dog - To make an ostentatious display of elegance, wealth, or culture.
