Unformation (II)

Ross Wiseman, Minister of Business, whatever that is, and Terry French, Minister of Playgrounds, “release” a report entitled Taking Flight: An Air Access Strategy for Newfoundland and Labrador.

Oddly enough, the Minister of Transportation and Works is nowhere to be found. For the record, “air” is a type of transportation.

From the backgrounder attached to the press release, said report sounds vapid and platitudinous. Par for the course, in other words, from Williams-Government’s cleverly-programmed report-writing macro.

And you’ll have to take the backgrounder’s word for it: the good Ministers “released” the report without actually, um, releasing it.

Perhaps the tech.gnomes haven’t finished running it off the printer and through the scanner.

Wally, the key recommendation is in the press release. It says a person (a Director, at that) will be hired. Problem solved. Agency created and salary provided, because the consultants said so.

It's awesome when government works as it should.
