Moonbox Posted September 9, 2022 Report Share Posted September 9, 2022 Was just reading this article and it sort of scared me a bit. I knew Justin was a spender (still believe his dad was our worst PM ever, at least until him) but the numbers are pretty stark. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/business/article-expansion-of-federal-civil-service-lacks-the-proper-measurements-for/ That's a paywall but the gist of it is that the federal public service has grown by an appalling ~25% since 2016 while the population grew around 7%. The average federal servant in Canada already makes over $100,000/year including their benefits and now stands at over a quarter million Canadians. This is not sustainable and we will almost certainly not be getting value out of these additional hires. This is the sort of thing that would make me vote for Pierre Poilievre, despite my strong distaste for the man. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
