Anyone heard from Danny "Millions"?

Anyone notice something unusual? Yea, I thought you might have. Stephane Dion has managed to accomplish something incredible, something that no other federal leader has been able to do... he's managed to shut up Danny "Millions" Williams with his "Green Shaft" Carbon Tax scheme.

How? Well, that's actually where the good news ends for Dion. You see, prior to Dion's "Green Shaft" carbon tax plan, Danny boy was shouting "ABC!" from the rooftops... to vote for "Anybody But Conservatives" in the next election.

Now? He knows that as an oil producing province, Dion's "Green Shaft" will pump millions OUT of his province, just like it will in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Nova Scotia, which are all (now) oil producing provinces.

Here's the only thing I can find online regarding Danny's opinion of Dion's carbon tax, from the Telegram:
"I have a position on that at this point, but I'm not prepared to discuss it," Williams said.

When asked why not, he sharply replied, "I don't really feel like it, quite frankly."
You see, Danny's always been a bit of a prideful fellow, and maybe he just can't bring himself to say anything about Dion's carbon tax plan. Because in so doing, he'd have to recommend the voters of his provice do exactly the opposite of what he's been telling them for months... to vote for their local Conservative candidate in an effort to stop Dion's costly "Green Shaft".

Dion's "Green Shaft"... helping rally Canadians in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia to the Conservative banner like never before.

UPDATE: Platty got the "Talk to the hand, we'll talk when we're good and ready" reply from the Gov. of Newfoundland as well.

One theory is that Danny Boy is actually considering supporting Dion's carbon tax, if he can manage to get a side-deal out of Dion.

Now we'll see what Dion's really made of... if he offers a deal to Newfoundland, it means this "Carbon Shaft" is just that, a plan to specifically plunder the West.

And it will mean that his outspoken MP's like Martha Hall Findley will be correct in their assesments of Dion's Carbon Tax plan... that it's really just a crass political ploy to buy votes in Ontario, and not really a plan to deal with Climate Change.

    and I didn't think anything could put a cork in the giant gob of Danny "The mouth that Roared" Williams.

    Well done Steffi, well done.

    Have a nice summer Danny. Better start kissing Harper's ass now because they are just about to give out big Navy and Coast Guard ship building contracts and your province isn't in line to get a plugged nickle's worth of those &Billions.

    The long suffering people of NFLD&L, suffering again because their Premier is a Blowhard.

    I like a quiet Danny Boy but a leopard can't change its spots. I doubt it will last for long.

    I can think of two possibilites ...

    Danny will change ABC to ABCD--Anybody but Conservative or Dion

    OR, Danny is in negotiations with Dion, to somehow exempt NFLD from theGreenshift's carbon taxes. Supposedly, Gordon Campbell and Dion have some kind of deal in place (on the back of a napkin?) for B.C. residents to avoid double carbon taxation.

    I made an inquiry into Danny boys position on the Carbon Claw. You can see the response here.

    Williams is smart enough to shut his mouth following the Green Shaft announcement. Does Newfoundland really want to head back to have not status?

    Smart enough??

    So his bravado with the PM was all an act then.
    Sort of a , "I stand up for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, but only when it suits me..."

    Sorry Gabby, I messed up on your comment, here it is as posted:

    Gabby in QC has left a new comment on your post "Anyone heard from Danny "Millions"?":

    As I posted July 7 over at Angry's ...

    Maybe Mr. Williams has decided to lie low for a while because of this:
    "Cancer test errors not reported to St-Pierre women
    Updated Mon. Jul. 7 2008 8:26 AM ET
    The Canadian Press

    HALIFAX -- A patients advocacy group on the French islands of St-Pierre-Miquelon says a Newfoundland health agency did a poor job informing eight women on the islands about breast cancer testing mistakes."

    "E-mails show Williams's office knew of breast-test problems
    Apr 07, 2008 01:37 Pm

    ST. JOHN'S–An exchange of e-mails entered as evidence at a public inquiry today shows that top advisers in the office of Premier Danny Williams were told about problems with breast cancer testing in Newfoundland months before the public became aware of the matter."

    No problem, CC.

    Thanks for letting it through.

    Maybe Newfoundland and Alberta will both separate if their profits are plundered. The Liberal Party - the party of Canadian Unity.
