Surplus squandered -- where is the old Paul Martin?

“Ottawa’s program spending jumped over $21-billion in a single year and the surplus has been squandered,” said CTF federal director John Williamson. “Over the previous three years, the period between 2000-01 and 2003-04, program spending increased by $22.7-billion or 19 per cent. A 15 per cent annual increase can only be described as utterly irresponsible. As Brian Mulroney might have said of the surplus, ‘They pissed it all away.’”
