Why Pay Twice? The Cost of Double Government


The way the affairs of Canadians are handled or mishandled within an antiquated government structure, and how that structure might be altered by the re-allocation of responsibilities. Problems in responsibilities being shared, or competed over, by two levels of government. An examination of the structure and how that might happen. Suggestions for better handling, and for streamlining the workings of government departments. The process of "disentanglement." Reorganizing and re-allocating the responsibilities of government. An historical review of how and why the Fathers of Confederation structured government at both the federal and provincial levels. How that structure has evolved. Five forces that influenced that evolvement. Our "hodge-podge" system of government. A closer examination, with specific details and examples, of how the structure works. Suggestions and recommendations for a reformed structure. Principles for rationalizing government operations at both levels. Specific changes that could be made. Suggested ways to implement such reform. What restructuring could mean in terms of saved dollars.
