How can you tell when he's lying?

His lips move.

ODP opened his mouth in the House on Monday, just barely, just long enough, to have the following QP exchange. His response constitutes every word Mr. Accountability uttered in QP, or at any other time during the course of the day:
MR. PARSONS: My final question is for the Premier.

Premier, contrary to what the minister just said, your government is on record as releasing reports within thirty days. We are three years, almost, into this one that I am talking about here. Saying you are going to release it when you are ready is not keeping the commitment to release it in thirty days.

Premier, you, yourself, said back on March 3 that you would scour the government coffers and departments and see what reports are hanging around and they would be released. They are still not released and we are here some sixty days later.

I am just wondering, has anybody given anyone instructions to do that, and can we look forward to seeing these reports actually being made public sooner rather than later?

PREMIER WILLIAMS: No instructions have been given; and, yes, we can.
So, on March 3, when he told Rob Antle of the Telegram:
Williams, meanwhile, said Friday the province will "absolutely" review its files for other unreleased reports.
He was lying.
