Polling month starts in earnest: five of six announcements detail public spending

August is polling month for the provincial government’s pollster.  You can tell because on the first working day of the money, cash announcements and announcements of announcements flowed like water:

There were 12 announcements made on August second.  Two were public advisories and another four were media advisories, including warning of a media availability later on Monday and a funding announcement on Tuesday.  One of the dozen announcements covered the closure of the school for the deaf.

In other words, outside of the media and public routine announcements, the provincial government issued six news releases on Monday.

Five of them were about spending.
