Apology and retraction

Yesterday, this blogger suggested that three fine, upstanding PC MHAs were "fishing for an Award for Special Achievement in Sycophancy" in their fawning and almost embarrassingly ebuliant praise for Premier Williams.

In fact, as it turns out, it is in fact RE/MAX which qualifies for this first irregular Award for Special Achievement in Sycophancy. Congratulations, RE/MAX!

Yesterday's comments concerning the heartfelt and entirely not sycophantic comments by three PC MHAs, enabled by an unwitting Chair occupant, are withdrawn in their entirety, and apologies are issued, impersonally, to all who may have been offended or in any way harmed.

Capital City Leading Country in Real Estate Sales - Dec 3, 2008

St. John's is expected to lead the charge for residential real estate in Canada this year with an anticipated 11 per cent increase in unit sales. That's from RE/MAX which says this province is the only one expected to post a gain by year's end. Housing prices in St. John's are projected to climb by 21 per cent over last year. The sales of homes priced at a quarter million dollars or more is up some 78 per cent over last year's levels. RE/MAX says the Williams effect on the overall economy in this province is nothing short of remarkable. Next year, it's predicted that the number of homes changing hands will be down marginally but the average price is expected to continue climbing, rising 12 per cent to 202-thousand dollars.

Does the "Williams effect" theory apply to the real estate markets in the other 400 communities in the province, or just St. John's?
