The $4.7 Million Dollar Question – Who’s Getting it?
The province announced last Thursday that it is giving nearly $5 million dollars to help with the storage and shipping of potatoes grown for the french fry market.
How is the money going to do that? Who is going to receive it? How is it going to be allocated? On what will applications rely by way of a core criteria for being entitled to access those funds? Or is it just a cheque made out to Robert Irving?
Asking for a Friend
Premier King and Minister Thompson need to explain exactly how this money is going to be spent, who will receive it, and what justifies giving it to Irving – if that is in fact the plan.
Please God, don’t let it be that the King Government decided we’d all chip in and buy Mr. Irving some more assets for his company.
