Danny Williams was the charismatic and unflinching Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador from 2003 to 2010. By the time he left office, he had become the most popular—and controversial—Canadian politician of his era.

Laced with humour and revealing back-room anecdotes, Danny is the story of how Williams turned a “have not” into a “have” province. Known as a fighter, Williams famously took on prime ministers and Big Oil to ensure that benefits from the province’s abundant natural resources flowed back to its people. His mantra “no more giveaways” was key to his unprecedented popularity, but pride in his province made Williams a hero to its people.

    I think history will be much less kind to Danny than this documentary or current public opinion. He was lucky enough, yet again, to have record high oil prices, there was a minority government in Ottawa for the duration of his tenure, and he grew the public service more than it ever had. Low oil price and a majority federal government, especially if it was Harper, would have changed the water on the beans. The growing of the public service instead of paying down debt, has likely condemned Danny to a very poor record when viewed through an historical lens!

    NLers obviously need to fight to get control of their resources and Danny was good at it. To bad he left when he did. I love NL as much as the next person, however, I would like to see thst Rant & Roar nonsense go. We have to be well balanced to fight any fight and that rant needs to go imo.
