Stimulating packages since 2003

A funny claim from a Minister in a government of the guy who wants — or is that wanted — to "cultivate" financial autonomy from Ottawa:

MR. HEDDERSON: What I might add, is that this particular year, that was really, I think when the final analysis - it was up around $900 million because we leveraged federal money. So you are talking about $900 million, and not only that, but we are ahead of the game because we were prepared as a government. Because we heard what was happening or what we saw and heard from the people what was required in rural Newfoundland and Labrador, in Newfoundland and Labrador in general, and we responded. Guess what? As a jurisdiction - talk about stimulus packages and that, we have been stimulating since 2003.
