Premier Kathy Dunderdale on Leadership Intentions

She's not saying no, but she's not exactly saying yes, either. There's been speculation over the past few days that Premier Kathy Dunderdale may run for leadership of the provincial progressive conservatives after all.  Kathy Dunderdale was sworn in earlier this month after Danny Williams resigned as premier.  At the time, she said she was just going to fill the premier's job until a new party leader was picked prior to the next election. This morning, Premier Dunderdale was at Government House for the swearing in of new MHA David Brazil.  Afterward, she spoke to reporters.


Cottage Hospitals Book 

Cottage hospitals in Newfoundland and Labrador play a big part in our province's medical history. And now Edward Lake has published a history of them. It's called "Capturing an Era". Ed knows first hand about some of that history. Years ago, he was a nursing assistant at the cottage hospital in Placentia. 90 year old Jean Lewis trained as a nurse in England, and came to Newfounldand for what was supposed to be a short stint. But she stayed, and travelled all over Newfoundland and Labrador as the provincial Director of Public Health and Cottage Hospital Nurses. Ed Lake and Jean Little dropped by our studio to chat with Ramona.
