I hope this fear mongering by the red star is true. The Tories do need to cut the civil service.
They need to rid of us of section 13.1, eliminate electoral welfare, amend the omnibus crime bill to eliminate hate speech rules, eliminate FIRA, eliminate the CRTC, sell the cbc, eliminate all advocacy funding, eliminate corporate welfare, modernize healthcare, allow more private care and so much more! And of course elections Canada needs to be reformed.
OTTAWA—As Conservatives prepare to recall Parliament, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is setting the stage for a clampdown on federal government spending under the newly elected government, that would include cutting the public service by 80,000 — or one-third.
The Conservatives now have the power to cut spending to bring down the deficit, says Flaherty, a message that could foreshadow a round of deep cuts to services and programs in coming years.
