One of Us! One of Us!

danny It’s been said that if you go to St. John’s and don’t come back with a spring in your step, you might want to check your pulse. Yesterday, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, arrived in Newfoundland and Labrador to begin their tour of Canada. They were welcomed by Premier Danny Williams who gave a speech, extolling the virtues of Canada’s youngest province, highlighting its culture, its beauty, and its ties to the British Isles.

“Wherever you go here, you will find fish and chips that rival any in London,” he joked, as well as plenty of Newfoundlanders who “can’t live without their daily dose of Coronation Street.”

Oh, sure. Danny Williams referred to Newfoundlanders in the plural but I think we can all infer from his words that he was really talking about himself. He’s a Corrie addict. He’s one of us.
