Making a list

My, but someone's touchy these days. Yet again, an opposition press release results in a battalion's worth of rapid reaction:
Minister Skinner said that in a little more than six years, the Provincial Government’s deliberate approach to improving the province’s communications capacity has led to significant increases in connectivity. In 2009, close to 450 communities, representing 85 per cent of the population, have access to high speed Internet – up from 114 communities in 2003.

Such remarkable figures: "close to 450" vs. a precise 114; 85% of the population, which means someone has created a spreadsheet.

Hey, Scott Barfoot — care to share the spreadsheet?
