What is Danny Williams' real plan? Does he have an hidden agenda
Is there a method to his madness?
Think about the Labrador issues and this man for a minute.
Would you or anyone else say that this guy is a dumb, person, with his education and business success?
Does Danny Williams believe in his heart of hearts that the people of Labrador are dumb or naive enough to fall for his antics? Does he think that all the councils (The Combined Councils)of the bigland are that stupid?
Many will say that this premier is not stupid by any stretch. Ok, if he isn't incompetent he has to know that we, the people of Labrador will say an empathic no to this so called energy plan. We the people will say no to his PC candidates and vote against them. He forced us to make, "the ask", to much for him to accept. He is forcing us to say NO.
Why would he pressure us to say no? Good question. He had to know that we would never accept this energy plan for Newfoundland. He threw in Hydro Power for Hollyrood as a project for Newfoundland, he could have thrown in Hydro Power for Voisey's Bay as one for Labrador, kinda balance things out in a fair way(tit for tat). Wouldn't one think so? So, what is it? Is it something to do with Ottawa?
Then there is the Labrador Highway.
Williams will not submit the proper plans to the feds for a highway across Labrador. The feds want a detailed plan for such a road. I'm guessing they want to know, how wide the road would be, what type of surface, how many lanes, distance of the road, estimated cost etc.. So why won't they give the feds the complete details for our road? Could it be that our province don't really want this highway and they know that if they forwarded the proper information to the feds it would be approved and that the highway would have to go ahead immediately and the funds couldn't be used for anything else? Could it be that our provincial government is afraid that with a proper highway system we will do 99.99% of our business with Quebec? Could it be that with a good transportation system this province could no longer hold back industry and progress in Labrador?
Another situation is the Military Base in Happy Valley Goose Bay. How could Williams stop that.
Will he could become such an enemy of the feds that they refused to expand 5 Wing Goose Bay. They refuse to spend such a large sum of money in Labrador solely because of our Premier's attitude towards the feds. Think about it; this fight with Ottawa is mainly hurting Labrador, not Newfoundland.
Is this madness all about keeping Labrador down? If so, why?
How as this government fooled our Honorable Minister John Hickey? As he convinced him to move to Newfoundland to live with them? As John Hickey forgotten who his boss is, who he is really working for? Maybe Danny promised John a job with him no matter what happens in this election. What forces would turn him against his own people, unless he is so selfish that nothing else in the world matters. Hard to fantom
Then again he could be expecting Labrador to fall for such a scheme as the Energy Play and the island would have it made in the shade. The island could use Labrador Hydro for the new Oil Refinery, a Smelter in Long Pond for Voisey's Bay Ore, to replace the Diesel Power in Hollyrood, an aluminum Smelter and many other industries that he will have coming on stream in Newfoundland the same time as the Lower Churchill. All this to save the Rock and bring home every mother's son. All this instead of industries for Labrador, adjacent to their own power.
