David Eby’s $1 billion consultant spending spree as British Columbians suffer

VICTORIA (May 14, 2024) – As record numbers of British Columbians line up at food banks, David Eby has been lining the pockets of high-priced consultants. Since 2018, management consulting firms have received nearly $1 billion from this NDP government.

Last year alone, the Premier funneled $220 million into management consulting firms, up 200 percent from 2016. This includes hefty payouts like $62 million to Deloitte Canada and $42 million to PwC — enormous sums in taxpayer dollars that enrich global corporations.

While these consultants cash in on taxpayer dollars, the British Columbians who pay those taxes are experiencing the worst results ever:

  • Housing affordability is the worst in North America
  • Grocery prices have skyrocketed by 30 percent
  • Gas taxes are the highest in Canada
  • Wait times at walk-in clinics are now the longest in Canada

 

David Eby’s decision to funnel billions in taxpayer dollars to NDP insiders and high-paid consultants, while people can’t afford to heat their homes or feed their families, exposes a government completely out of touch with the needs of people in every corner of the province. British Columbians deserve so much better.
