I seriously don’t think Dwight Ball is fit to carry on as premier.

His first term was a total fiasco, any way you look at it. He denied responsibility in most of the controversies that arose, from the “bullying and harassment” in his cabinet to forgetting the wetlands capping at Muskrat Falls.

This new term he has had the Perry Trimper situation, the Gerry Byrne situation, the Tom Osborne situation and now the Chris Mitchelmore situation, which is a carryover from his first term as premier. He would not accept responsibility for any of it.

In his first term he ousted Eddie Joyce and Dale Kirby from caucus (for lesser infractions) because he had a majority, now that he is in a minority situation you can stay in his caucus and cabinet, no matter what.
Isn’t it time for a confidence vote of this government? I don’t know about the MHAs, but I certainly don’t have any confidence in this government or Dwight Ball.
