Budget watchdog data shows bureaucracy grew under Harper

The security establishment enjoying a boon, no wonder Canada is the most inefficient economy in the West. You wonder why there are rumours of Vic Toews leaving such a "high profile post" with plenty of dough being thrown around.

The largest staff increases came at the Canadian Border Services Agency, which grew by 5,200 employees, or 54.6 per cent, and the Correctional Service of Canada, up by 4,516 staff or 31 per cent.

The RCMP's civilian staff grew by 40 per cent, adding 1,787 employee to reach 6,210 on the payroll, and Public Safety Canada added 388 people to the payroll, more than 53 per cent.

1. Of course. He's a conservative.

He keeps putting off tax increases on the wealthiest until the deficit is cleared; under his leadership, it won't be. He's spent on things like jails and jets, border security....he's a neo con, and a very sad and nasty man.
