Danny – an NFB Film Club Presentation

Join us on the next two Tuesdays for free screenings of the NFB documentary Danny. This film profiles Danny Williams, the charismatic and unflinching Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador from 2003 to 2010. By the time he left office, he had become the most popular—and controversial—Canadian politician of his era. Laced with humour and revealing backroom anecdotes, Danny tells the story of how Williams took on prime ministers and Big Oil to ensure that benefits from the province’s abundant natural resources flowed back to its people.

Tuesday, April 21 and Tuesday, April 28 at 7 pm
