You can't handle the truth

As Lincoln said, “Let the people know the truth and the country is safe”.

That was Danny Williams-Government, in his Public Policy Forum speech, just nine months ago.

The truth?

Danny Williams-Government doesn't think you can handle the truth.

Some of the truth, from the incompetently-censored corrections report, released, revoked, re-redacted, and re-released, all in the span of a few hours on Monday:
The surveillance equipment at [the Labrador Correctional Centre] is outdated and does not serve the purpose for which it was designed.

Throughout the interviews with staff, the Panel have repeatedly heard that staff are given inconsistent direction from the managerial level.

Staff have described a dictatorship style of management in which they have little or no input into decision-making.

Last year, this group,while training mostly on their own time, managed to participate competitively in the Regatta. The staff were proud of their accomplishments, but were disappointed that the Superintendent was not there to support them. Five days after the event an email was sent from the Superintendent's office congratulating the rowers.
It makes a body wonder: is this sort of ham-fisted state control of the information flow the reason why Danny Williams-Government can't keep — or can't be bothered to keep — His 30-day guarantee?

And it really makes a body wonder, just what else is He covering up?
