Moammar Gadhafi cancels Canada visit
Libyan Leader Moammar Gadhafi has cancelled a trip to Canada that had been scheduled for next week, according to media reports.
Gadhafi had planned the stop-over in St. John's, N.L., on his way home from his speech to the United Nations General Assembly last Wednesday, a wide-ranging rant that lasted more than 90 minutes.
The Canadian Press says the African strongman was planning to stay in the city early next week, and local officials were prepping to put up one of the leader's famed Bedouin tents.
Hey, Gadhafi, come pitch your tent in February, that would be fun.
Why did Gadhafi want to stop over in Newfoundland? Why is Danny, big mouth so silent now? Not one press release from Danny about the visit. No ranting from him about terrorists. Not a single word from the egomaniac who loves to get face time on TV.
Did Danny invite Gadhafi because of oil? Let me be clear, this is only supposition, I have no facts to support my opinion. I would hate for Danny to start an ABHunter campaign against me.
Still, why the silence from loud mouth Danny? OIL? Or has the news media forgotten about Danny now that he doesn't matter on the national level, after all, Newfoundland has no government MP's, so the media doesn't care about them anymore.
Newfoundland and Labrador government officials say no one from the province will welcome Gadhafi.
"We don't have any comment, and no provincial officials will be meeting with him," an official in Premier Danny William's office told CBC News on Thursday.
Come on, where is Danny, I love attention Williams? Why is he hiding? He was vocal enough during the last election, so vocal that Newfoundland has no representation in the current government because of his ABC campaign. Why has Danny gone silent now?
