“Some day the sun will shine and have not will be no more.” These are the immortal words of Brian Peckford, who served as the third premier of Newfoundland, and leader of the Progressive Conservative Party from 1979 until his retirement in 1989. As one of Newfoundland’s most committed and combative leaders, Mr. Peckford’s clashes with the federal government—to wrest control of the province’s natural resources—resulted in the groundbreaking Atlantic Accord of 1985, his greatest political triumph during the province’s struggle for self-reliance in a post-Confederation era. This memoir begins with Mr. Peckford’s formative years growing up in outport Newfoundland. It gives all due praise to personal heroes of his, from the seasoned fishermen of La Poile and Pilley’s Island to experienced politicos such as Minister William Marshall and Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. The past, present, and his vision for the future of Newfoundland and Labrador are revealed here, as well as his insights on Constitution-making and the varicoloured political careers of juggernauts like Joey Smallwood, John Crosbie, and René Lévesque.

A very timely, deftly written and extremely informative work, focusing on key events marking the historic transition from the old Newfoundland of British and then Canadian colonialism under Smallwood, to the confidently independent province of today – from 'someday-the-sun-will-shine' to 'have-not-will-be-no-more.-- The Telegram --
One need not know more about Peckford other than he was premier of Newfoundland about 30 years ago. It was a time when some Newfoundlanders tried to move their province from a ‘have not’ to a ‘have’ and, with the help of Peckford, they succeeded. This story in itself makes the book worth reading and often exciting.-- PEI Guardian --
Some Day the Sun Will Shine and Have Not Will Be No More is a significant Canadian literary contribution and is a historical non-fiction that is part memoir, part expose.-- PEI Guardian --
There is nothing standing between the reader and the full force of Brian Peckford’s personality and ultimately this makes the memoir good value.-- Atlantic Books Today --
Brian’s writing is as powerful and clear as his oration.-- Edwards Book Club --
Peckford serves up his memory of how things were in this province up to the 1980s, and it is an entertaining meal.-- Northeast Avalon Times --
It is a vivid exposition of his vision for Newfoundland and her people. It will surely, and deservedly, find a place in Newfoundland's recorded political history.-- Newfoundland Quarterly --
