Bureaucratic speak

The Feb. 5 story in The NEWS about the future of the existing fire hall leaves me a bit befuddled as to what the bureaucrats are up to when chief administrative officer Daniel Sailland said: “the site is a great opportunity for us to prepare a plan that will include all the core elements of the outreach that we will likely see in other areas.”

This line brought back memories of an earlier statement by the same CAO (Sept. 11, 2014 edition of The NEWS), who stated: “that way we can talk about that specific area away from one specific project and really look at this in a holistic way.”

Eureka — now it’s all clear.
