Special sycophancy statement (V)

All joking aside [When did we agree to that? - ed.] Lori Lee Oates' clumsily-headlined Tuesday-morning effort went a long way towards making up for the relative WilliamsGovernment drought last month:
On the heels of the announcement of significant investment by the Provincial Government for fisheries science research, the Honourable Clyde Jackman, Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture, today outlined multiple investments and initiatives which demonstrate the high level of commitment of the Williams Government to the province’s fishing industry, including the fact that the budget for the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture has increased by approximately 360 per cent since 2003.


A summit with fishing industry stakeholders was held by the Honourable Danny Williams, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador in 2006.


In 2007, Premier Williams appeared on Larry King Live to address false information on the province’s sealing industry.


In 2010, the Autonomous Tariff Reduction Quota (ATRQ) was reduced to no tariffs on the first 20,000 metric tonnes of shrimp entering the European Union (EU). This followed an extensive lobby of the European Union on the part of the Williams Government which included several trips to the EU and Ottawa by Premier Williams.

The continued growth and development in this sector has been largely in response to the high level of investment on the part of the Williams Government.
Boy, there sure are a conspicuously large number of verbs in the past tense in that 1179-word retrospective...
