Credit where credit isn't due

The Tellytorialist opines on Saturday:
It’s quiet, deep in the background, and the provincial Tories haven’t gotten much credit for it. But every legislative session since the Progressive Conservatives came to power, they’ve trundled a few major renovations in legislation through the House of Assembly — changes that bring this province into line with other Canadian jurisdictions, or that update laws that have been in place in this province since the 1970s or 1960s.
Once upon a time, governments and legislatures would get credit for being innovative with their legislative agenda.

Is this honestly what it's come down to? Giving kudos for harmonizing provincial legislation with practices in other provinces, and belated housekeeping of some of the more elderly parts of the RSNL?

In related news, the City of St. John's is looking at instituting legal protection for whistleblowers.
