Selective autonomy (II)
From the Bow-Wow Parliament on Wednesday:
MR. PARSONS: My next question is for the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Recreation.
On November 22, 2007, the media broke a story about certain reports done by that department concerning the future use of the Colonial Building. The report itself, apparently, cost $200,000 and it has still not been released by government.
I ask the minister: When can we expect to see that report released?
MR. JACKMAN: Indeed, the report is in its final stage. Second to that, and very much a part of, is federal funding. We are awaiting confirmation from the federal government as to whether they are going to support that project, and I anticipate that will be announced rather shortly - I mean, the overall report.
Does that mean that they are somehow altering the report that their consultants wrote for $200,000? I fos, why bother hiring consultants in the first place? If not... why has it taken since at least last August to release this report?
The report on the Colonial Building.
A provincial property, according to the the Terms of Union that are supposedly sacrosanct and should never, be breached, at least not by the federal government,
Physical symbol of Newfoundland's independence.
We Know What We're Fighting For.
That would be, The Federal Cash To Be Autonomous With.
Don't you feel proud?
