N.L. Oil Industry Backs Williams Over Hibernia South

"He doesn't seem to be able to make a deal with anybody," said Reid, noting that Newfoundland and Labrador's population continues to decline. "While that is occurring, we're having an exodus from this province, the likes of which we've never seen before." http://www.cbc.ca/canada/newfoundland-labrador/story/2007/01/18/hibernia-noia.html Commentary: Liberal Opposition Leader Reid is not making any sense in his statements. Granted, an opposition is supposed to oppose. But please gentlemen, let us have some sort of rational opposition, if you please! Newfoundland is hemorrhaging workers because of Fort Mac in Alberta. Danny Williams wants to ensure that the oil off Newfoundland's shores is used to keep Newfoundlanders at home. The oil companies apparently are not willing to sign on to any kind of guarantee that would do this. Ergo, no deal. How could Gerry Reid oppose this? He should be solidly on side, shoulder-to-shoulder and toe-to-toe, in the interest of Newfoundland's citizenry. Were that our Conservative PM Harper had the fortitude of Conservative Premier Williams! [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on January 22, 2007]
