Timing is everything

Now, this is curious.

The announcements of Order of Newfoundland and Labrador recipients, since the inception of the Order in 2003, have occurred on June 16, 2004, October 20, 2005, November 24, 2006,
November 26, 2007, and November 30, 2009.

That is to say, with the exception of the inaugural list in 2004, all of the announcements have been made fairly late in the fall of the year.

This year, for no reason in particular, things are different.

Now, before you get your hackles up, remember that when Danny Williams-Government tinkered with the appointments process six years ago, it was absolutely, under no circumstances, so that the Order could be used for political purposes, let alone electoral ones.

Nothing could be further from the truth.
