Somebody invoked that classic Bill Murray movie Groundhog Day yesterday in our conversation about the new northern NB strategy. Just another plan, another credenza creature while Rome burns.
Obviously I have a tainted view here but I think this one could be different. Ultimately these things are always about what you do with them is what matters.
But to paraphrase Captain Kirk’s son in Star Trek II – words matter – we need to have a starting point in order to move forward.
I do worry that the political imperative is not necessarily the bureaucrative imperative but that is exactly why the report I wrote talked about local leadership and a stronger mechanism for the North to take more direct control over its destiny. Again, just words but words matter.
