The documentary Danny is as much about Newfoundland and Labrador as it is about Danny Williams. Despite the usual incursions through mass media and recently the Internet, Newfoundland and Labrador remains quite unique in Canada.

More than 35 nations have already prohibited their trade in the primary products of Canada's commercial seal slaughter and there is no future in commercial sealing. It is time the Canadian and provincial governments put their support behind a fair sealing industry buyout.

Politicians are free to ignore the science, safety and history of hydraulic fracturing. But if the incoming New Brunswick government sticks with its election promise, it will outlaw (temporarily, at least) one of the more innovative ways to extract oil and gas in the 21st century.
