It’s a new year but it’s business as usual with the Ontario Liberals when it comes to the 3-Ps: Patronage, Pork, and Payola.
The Wynne Liberals have appointed Saad Raffi to head up the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan Administration, the entity that will presume to create a savings scheme for Ontarians.
Yes, the guy who supposedly brought last summer’s Pan Am Games in “on time and on budget” (NOT!) was appointed by a government that has brought us numerous financial boondoggles over the past decade.
Golly, I feel so much more secure about my financial future now!
But this makes sense if you understand how government bureaucrats budget mega-projects:
If the original budget is going to be exceeded, then a “revised” budget is drafted.
If that doesn’t work as costs continue to escalate, well then, the budget is revised again. It’s a moving target with a cushy safety net – an endless reservoir of taxpayer dollars.
And THAT is how a bureaucracy can go over-budget by a billion bucks only to be later applauded for coming in “on budget"!
Maybe we’d have a fighting chance at stopping this madness if the Media Party did some due diligence in their reporting instead of simply recycling government issued press releases.
