I grew up in a relatively small home. But when I was growing up we were a tourist spot. The penninsula provided swimming, boating, water skiing, and walking in the woods and finding deer.

Most of my friends have moved out and around the country. We still keep in touch. I hope you enjoyed your tour.

After giving away as little as possible on the subject, Minister Davies then sat down and proceeded to laugh and joke through the remainder of the debate on the subject. Glad you find the selling out of a precious piece of our environmental and cultural heritage so humorous, Mr. Davies. But we should be used to the sheer arrogance of our politicians. It takes one’s breath away sometimes, though. Here is the laughing Minister…
