Liberal party in need of nobility
It makes sense that the Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador, given the reasons it cited at its recent convention, would not want to retain our province’s current coat of arms.
It does not make sense, given the reasons it cited, for it to want our province to have any coat of arms at all, except that some air of nobility still clings to the idea of a coat of arms, and the Liberals, like all our modern politicians, are sorely in need of anything that could allow them any sort of association with anything at all noble.
The pitcher- plant “business brand” with which Danny Williams often replaced the coat of arms in government advertising ought to be quite good enough for a political party which after all perpetuated Mr. Williams’ most prized project combining business and government: Muskrat Falls.
