Busy work (2)

Newfoundland and Labrador Farm Products Corporation is the Crown agency that used to run the chicken processing plant at Pleasantville.

The plant was sold in the late 1990s and Farm Products Corp has had nothing to do since then.

The corporation still exists, however, and cabinet appointed a board of directors for the corporation. 

In March 2008, those directors - all public servants - dutifully filed an activity plan as required under the government’s accountability and transparency legislation.

The activity plan reported that the corporation was inactive.

The plan also reported the inactivity would continue.
