A couple of guys and I were discussing this question the other day while drinking some pop overlooking the Miramichi river.
Firstly, I’d like to say that it would have been interesting to be a fly on the wall at that fateful last meeting between Danny and Stephen Harper. I don’t know what was said but we can speculate that it was heated. I just saw Danny on CBC hammering Harper – saying giving him a majority would be the biggest mistake Canadians could ever make. I have heard of Tories switching parties. I have heard -certainly – of Tory Premiers criticizing Torie Prime Ministers but I have never heard the kind of vitriol coming out of Danny Williams ever said about anyone – other than a criminal.
But, Danny is the most popular Premier in Canada – by far (among provincial populations). His approval rating is 77% compared to the NL Liberal leader at 8%. I have never seen that big a gap.
Does New Brunswick need a Danny Williams?
I’d like to know what you think.
