TPC: Slashed but not Killed

Yesterday, the federal government slashed funding to Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC), Ottawa's flagship corporate welfare program.

This is good news. Chronic rule-breaking, damning internal audits, and paltry repayment records have plagued TPC for years and it is about time something was done.

But if the government really has taxpayers interest at heart it will kill the program entirely.

$2 to $4-billion could be saved if Ottawa got out of the corporate welfare business. There is still much more fat to cut!

Read why corporate welfare is bad here.

Sign our petition calling for an end to corporate welfare here.
