Comparative centralization

A Telegram commenter tries to make a point in response to a Wangersky column:
from away not by choice from que writes: AMEN couldn't some of these HQs for NL crown companies move off the avalon? now that would make a good election platform- but then again the political machine being what it is would shut down that idea. It does parallel the fed gov't centralization of jobs & ministries in Ottawa/Gatineau.

Parallel? Nothing could be further from the truth.

About 40% of the federal civil service work in the "National Capital Region" of Ottawa-Gatineau. That is substantially lower than the 70% or so of the provincial civil service whose jobs are in the St. John's metropolitan area.
