I seem to remember a little while back, the Halifax city council said that it would not reveal costs of the bid for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Well, I guess what they really meant was that they would only reveal costs that come in under budget.
“The Halifax 2014 team is committed to being fiscally responsible, and we’vedemonstrated again that we are doing just that while meeting our objectives,” committee CEO Scott Logan said in the release.
“Of course, we’re not going to tell you what those objectives are until we’ve met them”, he was not heard to say.
Information is not power. The selective control of information, however is.
