"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

~ Niccolo Machiavelli, historian and writer

The More Things Change ...

Remember this? And this?
Have you heard the latest?

From the latest edition of Institution Watch:
NOVA SCOTIA
More than a year ago (November 2006) the Nova Scotia government announced that it would be renovating an empty building to create an institution to house 24 people. The news release estimated the cost to be $3 million with annual operating costs also estimated to be $3 million. On December 19, 2007 the tender for construction was awarded at a cost of $4,180,000. The costs for design work are unknown.
There's also a complete look at how other provinces are doing. I can tell you that British Columbia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland are leading the way.

Nova Scotia? As you can see, we're not fairing too well. But check it out for yourself.

So what will it take to make a difference here? Who, if not us, is going to make our government move forward on this? That's forward in the right direction. As opposed to what they apparently think is the right direction.

What are your thoughts and ideas?

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Show of hands?
