 Ray Guy: The Final Columns, 2003-2013 is a collection of the columns Ray Guy wrote for The Northeast Avalon Times, a community newspaper based in Portugal Cove. Guy previously achieved fame and acclaim for his astute and humorous observations of Newfoundland politics and society in columns in The Telegram and The Sunday Express from the 1960s to 1990s. Guy began writing for The Northeast Avalon Times in 2003, the same year Danny Williams was elected premier of the province. During the ensuing decade, Guy exercised the wit and satire that made him so admired by Newfoundland readers. Ray Guy: The Final Columns, 2003-2013 aims to make the brilliant writing of his last decade available to a broader audience. The foibles and folly of premiers on Confederation Hill, the looming disaster of the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project and the frustrating fickleness of “the great Newfoundland voter” were repeatedly addressed by Guy in his unequaled style. Guy was quick to recognize Danny Williams as “another Smallwood,” and had much to say and much to mock about the pomp, arrogance and authoritarian rule that largely led to the troubled times Newfoundland subsequently found itself in.
