Mr. Speaker, this borrow-and-spend government is addicted to overpriced consultants. Last fall, the Conservatives hired Greg Gormick to write two press releases. He was paid $1,200 for one and $2,200 for the other. That is $3,400 for 1,300 words.
It is also worth noting that the consultant was later given a job with the Conservative member for Peterborough.
Public servants could have prepared these press releases at a fraction of the cost.
How can the government justify this waste?
