Mr. Speaker, another example of the Conservatives' penny-wise and pound foolish management has come to light.
Despite just having signed a long-term lease, the government has decided to shut down the Coast Guard office in Inuvik, the office for the Beaufort Sea and the western Arctic Ocean. The Coast Guard workers have to move to Iqaluit on the other side of the country or lose their jobs. This means increased costs for relocation, as well as the disruption of the lives of these workers.
How can the government say that it is a good financial manager when it makes decisions like this?
