Legislative intent, the sequel

Nottawa points out some funny stuff:

No legislative amendments are required for the changes announced Wednesday and King said there are no other foreseeable developments at the moment which would require changing the legislation."

The legislation that required tedious work, due diligence, solid research, years of delay and (of course) deserved full debate turns out to suddenly be completely unnecesary.
It would appear, then, that the province's one and only institution of higher academic education, has itself been re-educated — perhaps during Tuesday night's "hurried" Bored of Regents meeting.

That's because the Memorial University of Newfoundland (St. John's and Corner Brook) annual report [link to .pdf file], tabled in the House of Assembly on September 30th, states, at page 5:
To undertake the changes contemplated for Sir Wilfred Grenfell College there will have to be amendments made to The Memorial University Act. Those amendments had not been finalized during the period of the 2008-09 annual report.
