Harper’s Turd Continues to Stink

Posted on by 0 comment

Yep, that’s the best I can get with the whole ‘Phoenix’ analogy. A stink that won’t quit.

Stephen Harper hated government so much that he implemented a payroll system that wouldn’t work, wouldn’t pay employees and that would explode on the next government.

It’s a turd that keeps on stinking.

Here’s the CBC coverage here of the Auditor General’s report on Phoenix and a few other nasty turds that Stephen Harper left for the next government.

Of course, all of this begs the question: can a current government sue a previous government for complete incompetence and (potentially) intentional cruelty towards its employees?

And can the current government go after the company that’s supposed to be implementing the whole thing?

They’ve botched everything to date and if this was the private sector, the company would be (a) fired and (b) sued if evidence indicated there was a decent enough case.

Which leads to the next question: what’s the public service doing to take action in this situation? Are they sitting around playing the blame game or are they collecting evidence?

Let’s hope it’s the latter.

And finally, why persist?  You have a ‘partner’ that continues to take from the public purse while failing to do what they were hired to do.  When will our current government find another contractor to replace or repair the job?
