It would appear that something may be going on at the MoCo that will not curry favour with certain members of the local puffed-up punditry.
Specifically, it looks like the folks from the CBC are actually be paying attention and not taking codswallop for an answer.
By way of illustration the following is the lede from a piece posted today by the CBC's Natalie Clancy and Manjula Dufresne:
The amount of money B.C. is spending to prevent fentanyl overdoses seems to depend on which day the question is asked.
On Tuesday, it was more than $10 million.
On Wednesday it was $15 million.
By Thursday, B.C. Premier Christy Clark had nearly tripled that number.
"We have put at least $43 million into it and that doesn't count all the hospital resources." said Clark.
Clark responded to questions at a news conference about a CBC report on how little money B.C. had originally budgeted when the public health emergency was declared in April.
The story pointed out the government had allocated 10 times more funds to the fight swine flu than it had the fentanyl crisis.
But Clark said the original $15 million figure was based on "very flawed" research.
Except that research came from her own officials in the Ministry of Health...
I wonder if any of any members of the Wizardry and/or the Klout Klub executive are having second thoughts about their prior removal of the good Mr. Smart from his previously more useful place and position?
