St. John’s, NL – The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour (NLFL) says EngageNL’s questionnaire on the Big Reset pushes respondents to support the PERT Report, and calls it a fake consultation. NLFL President Mary Shortall believes that whoever designed the public questionnaire has an agenda, and rather than seeking honest feedback and input on the recommendations of the Report, the agenda pushes respondents to support PERT’s recommendations.
“We asked our members to complete the online questionnaire,” says Shortall. “Within hours of doing so, they told us it was a bogus exercise that did not allow for dissenting views. We expected public engagement to be transparent and allow for meaningful engagement. Our analysis supports their feedback.”
