Proud to be a New­fie

The Compass - - OPINION -

Dear ed­i­tor,

I am a New­fie and proud of it. I am proud to say I am a res­i­dent of New­found­land and Labrador.

I have trav­elled all over the United States and Canada and have en­coun­tered noth­ing but re­spect from other Cana­di­ans and Amer­i­cans alike. Folks who have vis­ited our prov­ince loved be­ing here; those who have not vis­ited want to visit.

Other Cana­di­ans have a deep re­spect for fel­low Cana­di­ans from our prov­ince. Many have worked with our peo­ple, and they say what good work­ers we are and how in­no­va­tive we are. For the past few years many are full of com­pli­ments for our Premier Wil­liams and our fine gov­ern­ment. They are gen­uinely happy for us.

A few folks in the USA are not all that fa­mil­iar with our prov­ince. Af­ter all we have a small pop­u­la­tion and the USA news does not have a lot of Cana­dian con­tent. Most how­ever, are well in­formed.

We are, for the most part, do­ing a good job pro­mot­ing our prov­ince. We hope that the folks who are re­tired away come home in droves to this per­fect place. Loretta Fitzger­ald
