Danny Williams was 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. Here, we observe how Williams turned a "have not" into a "have" province. Known as a fighter, Williams famously took on prime ministers and Big Oil to ensure that benefits from the province's abundant natural resources flowed back to its people. His mantra "no more giveaways" was key to his unprecedented popularity, but pride in his province made Williams a hero to its people.
