Opposition grills Treasury Board president about ‘lacking’ transparency on billions in federal spending


OTTAWA — Opposition members of Parliament grilled Treasury Board Minister Jean-Yves Duclos about the government’s COVID-19 measures, after a recent report lamented Ottawa’s “lacking” transparency on its massive emergency spending plans. In a study that NDP MP Matthew Green called a “bombshell report,” the Parliamentary Budget Officer on Wednesday said that Treasury Board officials had declined to provide crucial details to the PBO in its review of the Liberal government’s pay equity program, which aims to level out pay disparities between men and women in the public service.
