The Real Question

There are tens, if not hundreds of thousands of companies with very large, complex workforces. To a degree a payroll system should be an off-the-shelf item.

I doubt we'll ever know what really went wrong, but I suspect someone in the Harper government just HAD to stick their fingers in when they should have left well enough alone.

Hmmm, paybacks? Envelopes of cash? Been known to happen.
