Pretty much, former Enviro Barbie and now build it Barbie has issued tonnes of them she got nailed a couple of times for issuing under $40k contracts to the same contractor for the same project already. So you know she is using the accountability rule to do bigger projects by issuing on going small contracts to circumvent the procurement process

Quote:

The Procurement Process - Buyandsell.gc.ca
https://buyandsell.gc.ca/.../the-procurement-process
For requirements below $25,000 for goods, and below $40,000 for services and construction contracts, including all applicable taxes, contracting officers may request quotations from suppliers directly. These requirements are considered by PWGSC as low dollar value procurement.

requested by your government, yet the time to put shovels in the ground has come and
gone as construction season in Saskatchewan nears its end. It is greatly concerning that
these projects, representing real jobs and real investment in communities, have sat on a
desk for months waiting for approval.

Why do these Liberals have such an aversion to investing in infrastructure instead of their preference of simply giving away billions of dollars they don't have? Why have we still not heard from Cathrine McKenna about the missing $145 billion dollars in Liberal infrastructure "investment" that can't be accounted for? Why are people not demanding accountability from these incompetent buffoons? Where's the money Cate??

Not all infrastructure projects count either. we have a fire hall was due to start construction when COVID hit so it was postponed. Firehalls in BC are not approved infrastructure projects.

When I was working for the government, you could always tell by the schedule for bilateral conferences:

Ottawa - summer, bosses - winter, staff.
Mexico City - summer, staff - winter, bosses.

Summer is not a good time to visit Mexico, I went in the early fall and was faced with 40degC days.

Many of our politicians and senior staff like to have important meetings in the country they were born in when the weather is crappy here.
