Mixed message

OK, so now it seems that the Inland Fish Enforcement Program was established by Danny Williams-Government to send a message to poachers.
The Inland Fish Enforcement Program was established by the Williams Government in 2004 to send a clear message that the province would act quickly and decisively to apprehend poachers and others who abuse this resource. Since then, the Provincial Government has invested approximately $13 million toward the protection of the province’s inland fish stocks.
It seems like only yesterday that the Inland Fish Enforcement Program was Danny Williams-Government's Provincial Government's way to send a message to Ottawa.
The Inland Fish Enforcement Program was established by the Provincial Government in 2004 to address concerns raised by conservation groups and recreational anglers that the Federal Government was not living up to its responsibility to provide adequate enforcement and conservation of salmon and trout in coastal and inland waters. To cover this gap the Provincial Government provides over $2 million annually to ensure the preservation of trout and salmon stocks for future generations, including funding in Budget 2009: Building on Our Strong Foundation to purchase a new coastal boat.

Future generations , how about saving the stocks for the rich anglers who come for the thrill of "catch and release".....

In the Dannystan dictionary, the difference between the terms "jurisidiction" and "responsibility" is that the former becomes the latter once it invoves a price tag.

Yeah, it's all just politics. Poaching is not a problem. The feds have it all under contral. All those extra provincial officers are just getting in the way.
Yep, y'all sure got that pegged right.
