From the Memory Hole, episode infinity at this point

From a front-page report in the St. John's Telegram of August 15, 2009.

In light of certain other recent developments, it's almost as if there was a pattern or something.

Briefings only oral for OramNo paper trail outlining issues in Health department
Rob Antle

It has a budget of $2.6 billion and is responsible for ensuring the well-being of more than half a million residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, but the Department of Health and Community Services says it does not have a single scrap of paper or e-mail provided to brief incoming minister Paul Oram about his new job. 
The Telegram made a request under provincial access to information laws for any briefing materials provided to, or prepared for, Oram.
The request included paper and electronic records.
The response? Nothing. 
Oram said in an interview he prefers verbal briefings. 
"I didn't ask for any briefing notes," the minister said. "To tell you the truth, I don't get much out of briefing notes. I get more out of people sitting and talking to me about what we've got to do."
