Wish­ing premier good luck in 2016

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Af­ter view­ing one of the many re­peated show­ings of the year-end and New Year in­ter­views of our cur­rent premier, I was in­trigued by his skill in deal­ing with the ill­fated e-gam­ing scheme put for­ward and funded by his pre­de­ces­sor’s govern­ment. Quite wisely, he cau­tioned tax­pay­ers to await the re­port of the proper au­thor­i­ties be­fore mak­ing any valid judg­ment be­fore as­sign­ing blame; if any ever be called for.

More­over, al­though I can­not claim to be the gen­tle­man’s avid fan I am nei­ther or ever could be his petty and venge­ful foe.

Re­gard­less, I wish our premier and his govern­ment well as he, his, and the loyal Op­po­si­tion seek to guide the prov­ince to­ward an ever brighter fu­ture.

More­over, in the id­iom of my fel­low Ir­ish-born men and women I also wish him “the best of good luck” as he con­tin­ues to grow in ex­pe­ri­ence and sound prac­tice. Colmán O’Hare, Char­lot­te­town
