What a difference a year makes!

Last week, we reported the Campbell administration is projecting demographic forces will reduce the bureaucracy by 30 to 57 percent by 2019. This, as "many of us age and plan to retire," according to the premier's deputy minister Jessica McDonald. But what's interesting is the Campbell administration's top-line prediction is significantly more than the forecast the government used three months ago for 2018. At the time, the public service agency's service plan stated "it is projected that within the B.C. public service, we will lose 44 per cent of managers and 33 per cent of bargaining unit staff through retirement" by that date.
