When the Mother Corp morphs

Even CBC News is now shifting its interpretation that the Muskrat Falls loan guarantee is already in place.

In a story posted on Friday, the Mother Corp put it this way:

The federal Conservative leader told a rally in St. John's Thursday that if re-elected a Conservative federal government would provide a loan guarantee for the Lower Churchill project, contingent on three conditions.

Check out those four important words:  contingent on three conditions.

Compare that to a story they ran on Wednesday:

Multiple sources tell CBC News, though, that the federal and provincial governments have reached a deal on the terms of a loan guarantee.

or even a radio reporter’s debrief on Friday morning.
