Show Notes

We've got a new interview for you. Danielle Smith is a former Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, and served as leader of the Wildrose Party from 2009 to 2014, and the host of an Alberta-wide talk radio show on 770 CHQR Calgary.

In January, she walked away from that radio show, and she has a message for the media about accountability. Since accountability is a huge part of what we do at the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, our Prairie Director Todd MacKay called Smith for an interview.

#58 The 2021 Teddy Waste Awards

Earlier this month, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation held its 23rd annual Teddy Waste Awards ceremony in a special virtual presentation, celebrating the best of the worst in government waste uncovered in the past year. The Teddy, a pig-shaped award given annually by the CTF to government’s worst waste offenders, is named for Ted Weatherill, a former federal appointee who was fired in 1999 for submitting a panoply of dubious expense claims, including a $700 lunch for two. This year's winners include former governor general Julie Payette, a troubled ferry route in Quebec, and the City of Toronto's expensive approach to bike lanes.

#103 Massive Spending Didn’t Really Help COVID Fight

The Trudeau government pushed the federal budgets to historic highs and took on massive new debts, all in the name of fighting COVID-19. The CTF took a look around the world, and other countries have been far more restrained. One thing is clear: After two years of a worldwide pandemic, we know that more government spending does not guarantee better results.
