The federal government has dumped three boxloads of information about its efforts to stimulate Canada's sputtering economy on Parliament's independent budget watchdog.
But rather than provide an easy-to-read spreadsheet listing infrastructure projects and how much money has been spent on each of them to date, the government has flooded the parliamentary budget officer with 4,476 separate pieces of paper on individual projects.
The tactic has opposition critics accusing the government of trying to bury Page in paper.
New Democrat MP Pat Martin says the goal appears to be to confound and confuse people about how much has really been spent.
So transparent, and accountable, they just ooze "fairness" on this one, don't they?
