Autonomoney! (II)

"Strategy to Advance Canada’s Most Vibrant Ocean Technology Sector Released" is the passive-voice headline on the press release which curiously omits to link to the Strategy that has been released.

Perhaps the resident computer guru can get on the case.

Anyway... According to the Strategy, which document you can find if you go looking for it, one of the "Guiding Principles" is:
Costs will be shared with other levels of government
The Provincial Government will pursue collaborative funding with other levels of government and nongovernmental agencies that have similar objectives.
That's funny. Not so very long ago, one of the "Guiding Principles" of the entire regime was laid down as:
My Government will harness the desire among Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to cultivate greater cultural, financial and moral autonomy vis-à-vis Ottawa.
Just a tad inconsistent — unless, of course, The Provincial Government plans on shifting the costs of its Vibrating Oceans Strategy to community councils or something.
