"We can't allow things that are inaccurate to stand." — The Word of Our Dan, February 19, 2008.

His Premierosity is a stickler for facts:
“We’re not interested in pursuing this kind of a dialogue. We’re not interested in talking about trusting doctors. We all trust doctors. We all trust our own doctors, and any other doctors our families come in contact with. When it comes to people telling the truth, all we do is state the facts as they are.”
So, apparently, is Angela Lonardo, a MUN librarian:
Even statistics from three years ago all point to an average family income of well over $65,000 per year. This is significantly different from Mr. Kennedy’s claim that the average family income in Newfoundland and Labrador is “about $32,000.”

Though the statistics above might not be easy for a member of the general public to find, surely Mr. Kennedy has staff who are qualified to find statistics.

And surely the public should feel confident that statistics, or any information for that matter, that are included in a ministerial announcement have been checked and rechecked for accuracy.
