CTV.ca | N.L. delays release of report into botched cancer tests

"The probe heard evidence that the St. John's laboratory that processed the tests was overwhelmed by staff shortages, improper training and a lack of internal controls. Witnesses also testified to infighting among medical staff, and communication lapses between the provincial government and its largest health board -- Eastern Health."

Problems with the testing were detected in the spring of 2005 and yet Williams didn't launch the the inquiry until 2007.

I think Williams has been playing games. Trying to focus attention on Harper is a convenient way to dodge scrutiny of his own government. Obviously his management skills are not all that noteworthy. It's a wonder that he is so popular in Newfoundland.
