John Williams Canadian Alliance St. Albert, AB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-308, an act to provide for evaluations of statutory programs.

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce the bill which would bring some regularity and conformity to the way we evaluate programs to ensure Canadians get value for the $170 billion the government spends every year.

The bill asks that each program be evaluated based on what is the public policy a program is designed to achieve; is it achieving what it is trying to achieve; and is it doing it efficiently or can it achieve the same results in a better way.
