Premier Returns to Work

After extended medical leave, the Honourable Danny Williams, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, today resumed official duties.  The Premier thanked Deputy Premier Kathy Dunderdale for her work as Acting Premier in his absence.

�I want to thank Minister Dunderdale for the outstanding job she performed while I was away, in particular as it was in addition to her existing work as Minister of Natural Resources,� said Premier Williams.  �It was a great comfort to know the province was left in such capable hands, and I thank not only her but my entire cabinet and caucus for their hard work and unwavering support over the past number of weeks.  Now, I look forward to getting back full time working for the people of the province.�

The Premier also thanked everyone for their support and well wishes before and after his surgery. 

�I was completely overwhelmed and touched by the incredible outpouring of support and prayers during this time,� added the Premier.  �I wish to sincerely thank each and every individual who took the time to write or call my office, and for the many expressions of well wishes that were passed along.�
