Answer: You Make Photo-Ops.
And just what, exactly, is the lemon this time?
Well, it's a barely functional website that has cost something on the order of $50,000,000 so far.
Blogger and tech guy Paul Ramsey has the story:
Hey, good news zombie lovers, the project I’ve declared dead (or, at least, doomed) is not only still shambling around, it’s going to get the official political glad-handing treatment tomorrow (today):
"We are excited to share an important Natural Resource Permitting Project (NRPP) milestone....December 7—NRPP’s first service on the NRS Online Services website will be launched in Williams Lake at FrontCounter BC with Minister of State for Rural Economic Development Donna Barnett."
I always feel sad for the poor politician tasked with the “new website” announcement, because honestly, is there any announcement that feels like more of an empty gesture towards real action? “Yes, I understand you wanted $50M for addiction treatment, but… how about this new web site?”...
Put another way....
That wasted $50 million sure would pay for a lot of bus passes for the disabled (that we don't even have to pay for anyway).
Somehow I don't think that latter point will be lede on the 6 O'Clock fluffcast.
