Liberal regime spends billions more on outsourced contracts since taking power

Globe & Mail: "Federal government spending on outsourcing contracts has increased by more than 40 per cent since the Liberals took power, a trend at odds with the party’s 2015 campaign promise to cut back on the use of consultants..."

"The 2015 Liberal platform promised that the party would run three years of deficits of no more than $10-billion before balancing the government’s books in 2019-20.

"Instead, the Liberal government posted deficits of $19-billion in 2016-17, $19-billion in 2017-18, $14-billion in 2018-19, $39.3-billion in 2019-20 and $327.7-billion in 2020-21.

"The Liberal Party’s 2021 election platform did not include a timeline for eliminating the deficit, nor did Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland’s December fiscal update. That update did estimate the size of the deficit would decline to $13.1-billion by 2026-27, though those bottom-line projections do not take into account the billions in new spending promised in the 2021 platform. Updates on that spending are expected in Ms. Freeland’s 2022 budget."
