"We can't allow things that are inaccurate to stand." — The Word of Our Dan, February 19, 2008.

A most interesting tidbit in today's Wangersky:
Nothing makes reporters see red quite as quickly as when they are told something convenient just to make them go away, especially when they know otherwise. They follow up on things, especially when answers make no sense.

A premier of this province once said he had a report that proved the Sprung technology worked, and he would be happy to show it to everyone - except that it contained proprietary information and that meant it couldn't be released.

Turns out, the report didn't say that at all.
Most interesting, interestingissimo. you might say, because that is exactly the same excuse that is being used, twenty years later, to avoid releasing the study into the use of "cheap seal" on the Trans-Labrador Highway.

Where's the opposition on all this accountability, secrecy, and intimidation stuff, anyway?

Kelvin? Yvonne? Um, other guy?
