From what I read every IT project Canadians have screwed up. Be it e-health or City computer purchase or Dell/HP systems in Ottawa or paycheck system in Ottawa Or Gun registration.
Or take any other project in other provinces. They seem to screw up every time, above budget. I think its Canadian way to screw up government project and enjoy on taxpayers dime.
I try not to apologies but sometimes do it. not because its right thing but it benefits me.
