Re-announcing the announcement: the latest provincial government version

An eagle-eyed e-mail correspondent noted that Charlene Johnson's announcement of green public buildings was  announced about a year ago.

What was it Danny Williams said about that business of announcing old announcements so that it appears like more money than is actually there?

Oh yeah:

"But to come in and double- and triple-announce money, that's giving the appearance of being new money, that's misleading...".

We couldn't agree more.

It's misleading.
