How Ottawa Spends 2000-2001:
Past Imperfect, Future Tense

How Ottawa Spends 2000-2001 explores the continued redefinition of the federal government's role in Canadian governance. After years of deliberate down-sizing and withdrawal, Ottawa now has financial surpluses. As well, the sense that Ottawa must demonstrate its relevance is contributing to a desire for greater activism. Yet there are continued pressures to either stay the course of the first mandate or go even further with tax cuts. Contributors analyzes these cross-cutting pressures in a variety of key policy areas. Now in its twenty-first edition, How Ottawa Spends serves as an annual fiscal report card on federal government spending.
