Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, February 14, 1974 Public service shows rapid growth OTTAWA (CP) A brief winter begun with a 1969 gov- ernment freeze on expansion of the federal public service seems to have ended with a prolonged spring that shows no signs of letting up. Rapid growth of the public service from 1971 on may have gladdened the hearts of job- hunters, but has raised prickly questions for cabinet ministers and critics of government expansion. Prime Minister Trudeau in 1969 pledged a freeze in government growth. The austerity plan kept the. number of public servants in departments and de- partmental corporations bob- bing between and for a year-and-a-half, according to Statistics Canada figures. For a time, the public service actually shrank as positions of people who resigned, retired or died were not filled. MORE HIRED By the outset of 1971, Statis- tics Canada figures show the number of departmental em- ployees had crept up to and nine months later the total was about September, 1972, found departmental workers. As yet unpublished figures for last September show a total of not including approximately employees of government agencies and proprietary corporations such as Canadian National Railways, Air Canada, Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. and the wheat board. Nor does it count the armed forces. Though .three-quarters of federal public servants work outside the capital region, the expansion of the public service has probably had its greatest impact in Ottawa- Hull. The public-servant population in Ottawa and Hull now approaches well above the of September, 1971. Other large centres across the country have shown comparable growth. In Montreal, the public servants of September, 1971, grew to in 12 months, Statistics Canada says. Toronto, with federal employees in September; 1971, counted more than a year later. Other centres with large federal public-servant populations are Halifax, in September, Vancouver, and Winnipeg, Public service growth in Ot- tawa-Hull was termed extraordinary by Douglas Fullerton, former chairman of the National Capital Commission. He is preparing a special study for the government on future devel- opment and administration of the region. Local residents have in recent meetings outlined such problems as soaring housing costs (the average home now costs about alleged lack of planning in construction and transit. Even a former Liberal cabi- net minister has been moved to question whether there is a need for increased numbers of highly-paid officials. Senator Arthur Laing said last summer that at least six new government departments could have been made sub- sections of existing agencies.
