Nothing personal

ODP again with the impersonal verb construction, this time in his year-end interview with Dave Bartlett of The Telegram:
Williams acknowledged one election promise he hasn't kept yet is to enact whistleblower legislation, which would protect government employees who come forward with complaints against the province that could otherwise cost them their jobs.

"We indicated that we would try and get that done by the end of this year. We realized getting into that, that that's a very complex piece of legislation that we have to make sure that it's done properly," says Williams.

"I would think, that would be one thing that was probably on the list for this year but couldn't get accomplished."
When was the last time a piece of legislation "accomplished" itself?

Autonomy means, in part, taking responsibility for your own actions.
