Federal Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn has thrown more fuel into an ongoing feud with Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams, with a claim that he has eyes and ears inside Williams's own government."We can always be one step ahead of him." Why, whatever do you mean by that remark, Mr. Hearn? It almost makes it sound like you federal Conservatives are plotting against the people of Newfoundland in the midst of some clandestine battle you're waging to undermine Williams.
"There are times I'm sure I know as much as what's going on in cabinet and caucus or on the eighth floor as the premier does," said Hearn, referring to Williams's office in Confederation Building in St. John's.
"I always do. That's why we can always be one step ahead of him," Hearn said in a year-end interview with CBC News. "I have friends throughout cabinet and caucus." (emphasis added)
Now, Loyola...you bunk head. Didn't you catch your fearless leader trying to make amends just over a month ago? Apparently operation bended knee is very over. Can't see how such comments will go over well with Danny as 2008 is starting.
Ah yes, the leadership and competence of the Harper government in their federal-provincial relations on full display once again...:)
