Liberals Ask: Where’s the Accountability?
Mr. Holland was attacked to recent news reports indicating the department of Public Works, responsible for procurement for the entire federal government, has washed its hands of the oversight of government contracts.
Michael Ignatieff later pointed out that Public Works has quietly deleted all references to accountability from its supply manual which spells out lines of responsibility for government procurement.
Considering the Conservative Party promised an open and transparent government during the last election, it’s clear that this government doesn’t practice what it preaches. It is time for Stephen Harper to do the right thing and be honest with Canadians about his government’s hypocritical conduct.
