Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister responsible for Public Service Renewal.
Yesterday the government released part of its program review, a review that took almost a year to complete. While a number of patronage positions were reduced it was a drop in the bucket and the old system of patronage is still intact.
Canadians are looking for a change in the process of appointments and until the process is changed nothing is really different.
Why did the minister not announce a change in the patronage process during yesterday's announcement?
