Pandemic-related furloughs for federal employees have cost the country $632 million, according to Blacklock’s Reporter. On Friday, the Parliamentary Budget Office reported that 1,470,000 hours of paid leave have been claimed. “This is a huge amount of money,” said Kelly McCauley, the Conservative MP for Edmonton West, who requested the report. “It will come out to three-quarters of a billion dollars by the end of June, and there is still no plan to get employees back to work.”
