Where's the rest of it?

Last November, Memorial University's Harris Centre released a report on federal government presence in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The report became an issue in the federal election among local candidates, some of whom took to criticizing their own party based on what was essentially only a portion of the Harris Centre's analysis. The November report contained numbers without an explanation of why federal government jobs in the province had apparently declined.

According to the Harris Centre, the second report with the reasons behind the supposed cuts was due in February 2006.

That month has come and gone. Now it is mid-May and there is not a peep from the Harris Centre.

So where's the rest of the much-ballyhooed report?
