The ’70s were an era of disquiet: stagflation, American decline, uncertainty and lack of confidence.
The ’80s seemed to be a return to normalcy: American prosperity and confidence. The fog had lifted and the shining city on the hill was indeed there, every brick intact, better than new for all to see and follow — like the castle at Camelot, or the Star Spangled Banner at Fort McHenry.
Prime Minister’s Office increased spending by 6.9% in 2020-21
In the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, expenses in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office increased by 6.9% to $10.5 million.
According to the government’s public accounts for 2020-2021, spending for all ministerial offices, including the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), reached $68.21 million. The majority of the spending, $67.3 million, was spent on personnel.
When The Hill Times reached out to the PMO for comment, a spokesperson blamed the pandemic for the increase in spending and that its spending is “in line with or lower than some previous governments.”
