Easier to spend money than to make it

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me. But it’s kind of funny how the Liberal government can ‘transform’ the way it delivers social services, creating a new Department of Social Development and hiring a new deputy minister with an expertise in poverty issues brought in from in Montreal.

And on the economic development front, no changes, no new blood – in fact the deputy minister is only part-time.

Funny stuff. How about bringing in an expert on economic development? How about creating a new ‘department’ of economic development? Where’s the whiz kid from Montreal on economic development?

I guess it proves the old point. It’s easier to spend money than to make it. However, when you stake your government’s whole brand on making money (bringing the province to economic self sufficiency), you had better at least make a passing effort.
