Tonight’s tonic: “Shine a brighter light on contract government - Ottawa's becoming addicted to consulting firms. Other countries have rung the alarm. It's time for the same to happen here.”
Journalist Paul Wells outlines the facts about the Trudeau government’s addiction to hiring consultants to tell them what they want to hear. The quality of this expensive work is dubious at best, as evidenced. But it’s not just this federal government that is addicted to contracting out decision making in this very non-transparent way. It’s most governments these days, in Canada and around the world.
Is this saving money? Nope! It’s wasting it. Taxpayers are on the hook. Politicians can bypass the collective wisdom and transparency of the civil service. And it seems the only real beneficiaries are these private consultants and their shareholders. It angers me so much to see this abuse of government. If I ever got into government, it would be my mission to clean up this practice and end the sleaze.
