Well, this week marked the real heart of the provincial government “money tour,” an annual event where the province’s cabinet ministers and Tory MHAs fan out to re-announce government financing that was already in the provincial budget. Since we’ve heard this all before, here’s a mash-up of political quotes from the 14 announcements of

“… through our investment

to continuous improvement …

we are seeing the benefits …”

“This funding

will support …

“We remain committed …”

“Our government is committed …”
