Re-re-re-branding exercises

The Provincial Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, then of Newfoundland Labrador, then Williams Government, has, very abruptly, been re-re-re-branded.

All of a sudden, almost as if orders come down from on high, or the Eighth Floor, whichever is higher, the Provincial Government has taken to calling itself — get this — the Provincial Government.
A West Coast company has become one of the many to benefit from the Provincial Government’s efforts to support the development of the fishing and aquaculture industries through unprecedented funding and programming.

The Honourable Shawn Skinner, Minister of Human Resources, Labour and Employment, will hold a news conference today (Friday, April 25) to outline the actions being taken by the Provincial Government upon review of the workers’ compensation system in the province.

To support strategic municipal infrastructure investments throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, the Provincial Government will increase its capital budget commitment by $34.4 million annually, for a total provincial commitment of $84.3 million per year.

The Provincial Government, along with the Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission (WHSCC), is undertaking a series of actions to address the needs of the province’s workplace insurance and compensation system.

The Provincial Government is moving forward with initiatives for the forest sector to diversify their industry with funding of $14 million in Budget 2008.
All around the world, it would appear, personality cults are falling from favour.

Either that, or this is a wee bit of restraint in advance of the annual budget-week "Williams Government!" exercise.

Over to you, Joan Burke!


And "Provincial Government" is not only suddenly de rigeur, it's de rigeur in the lede.

The Provincial Government is committed to helping young women achieve success in science and engineering.

I am sure there are many NewfoundlandLabradorians who don't like what you say, Wallace, but can't help but smile at the way you say it. If not, they're a pretty humourless bunch. Either way, thanks for the laughs.
