Most Canadians who worry about out-of-control government spending focus on the big ticket items: corporate welfare, new unaffordable entitlement programs, or sending money overseas to corrupt international bodies and authoritarian governments.

But most Canadians would be surprised by the corruption, fraud and lack of competition in our own government, particularly when it comes to things like infrastructure projects.

Ottawa building contractor and former chairman of Merit Canada Walter Pamic knows a thing or two about this waste.

Walter joins True North’s Candice Malcolm on The Candice Malcolm Show to discuss.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
