Funny gal

Premier Dunderdale makes a funny, telling the Telegram, in respect of the provincial government's embassy to Canada:

“The office serves a great purpose when it’s functioning the way that it should,” she told a Telegram editorial board Wednesday. “And it’s important to me that we maintain that.”

...

“You need someone who is on the ground, who’s talking to people, who has relationships with people within departments, who are on the ground, who know what the scuttlebutt is, knows who’s coming, who’s going, who’s talking to who. Someone who is able to facilitate meetings, general intelligence gathering on the ground,” she said.
So important, and so needed is the office, that as of today it has been vacant for 515 days since the last office-holder's departure was made known to the public.

By way of comparison, the Rowe-Fitzgerald interregnum was a mere 447 days. (Rowe himself was on the job for just 198 days).

The Ottawa embassy has been unoccupied by an ambassador for more than 2.5 full years since it was initially staffed in 2004.

She's clueless about EVERYTHING. It is so painful to read about, to listen to, and to think of in the context of Muskrat Falls, in particular.

I wonder if I called Shannon "Clueless about EVERYTHING she writes".... would she track me down and report me. Would she tolerate these comments on her blog?

Hmm...I wonder?
