Taxpayers Federation applauds savings generated by ending “March madness” spending

OTTAWA, ON: Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) Federal Director Aaron Wudrick released the following statement in response to the Ford government’s announcement of $153 million saved through changes in year-end expenditure controls:

“We applaud the Ford government for finally putting an end to ‘March madness’. The practice of letting bureaucrats blow their budgets in the last few weeks of the fiscal year has been a chronic problem that needed to be stopped. Making clear that spending for its own sake is not an acceptable use of scarce taxpayer dollars sets an important message, and saving $153 million is great step towards the much bigger challenge of getting back to a balanced budget.”
