Only in Newfoundland and Labrador...

would a Premier spend well over $1.0 million of scarce taxpayers dollars to convince the people of the province that they are all vegetation.

He must think we are putzs.

If you don't believe it, check your mailboxes. Tens of thousands in mailing costs, not counting the graphic design costs and the printing of the high-gloss, full-colour piece called simply "The Pitcher Plant".

If you don't believe it, watch the NTV Evening News, where a 30 second block of airtime can cost at least $1,000 per.

Then watch as the same video airs twice in the space of a minute and a half and at least one other time in the first half hour of the show.

Thousands upon thousands of dollars spent each evening.

On sentence fragments.

To convince us that we are a plant that is found here.

And here alone.

Even though.




On any level.

Only in Newfoundland and Labrador.
