And the NDP and Pat Martin are in shock!
Oh. You thought the Conservatives were telling the truth with those shit-eating grins did you Pat? If I were in a campaign war room for the Liberals, you can bet your ass I'd be doing a point by point analysis of the bullshit contradictions the Conservatives have maneuvered through their own Accountability Act. Then again, we'd need an election for that.
accountable for the broken trust;and accountable for all that they failed to accomplish because of this government’s total preoccupation with scandal and damage control.
For those Canadians seeking accountability the question is clear: which party can deliver the change of government that’s needed to ensure political accountability in
Ottawa? We need a change of government to replace old style politics with a new vision. We need to replace a culture of entitlement and corruption with a culture of accountability. We need to replace benefits for a privileged few with government for all.
Clean up the procurement of government contracts
Under the Liberal government, abuse of the government contracting process has become
commonplace. Former Liberal cabinet minister Art Eggleton, for example, awarded an untendered contract to a former girlfriend. He was later appointed to the Senate by Paul Martin.
A Conservative government will:
• Review and amend all contracting rules to make the government’s procurement process free from political interference.
• Appoint a Procurement Auditor to ensure that all procurements are fair and transparent, and to address complaints from vendors.
• Permit smaller vendors and vendors outside of the National Capital Region to receive due consideration for government contracts.
