So the top-secret Arctic Breeze surveillance program, one so secret that DND refused to acknowledge its existence until the NDP found 50 pages of documentation on it through an FOI request, is over budget by 30% and counting.
It goes without saying that military programs can remain secret, and their existence denied. The reasons DND is so secretive about this program in particular are obscure at best; RevDave points out that other, similar Arctic surveillance programs are not kept at the same level of secrecy.
However, if you're going to keep a program secret, you have even more responsibility to manage it well, because you have no accountability to the taxpayer. Having such a significant budget overrun is completely irresponsible. The government should be forced at this point to come clean and at least explain what's going on with this project that cost an extra $30 million.
But accountability is just some word you say to get elected, you know. You don't have to actually do anything.
