|Here's where we totally disagree, Bob.|
This is a mistake made by well intentioned people or there are wrong people in a place of power who should not be in government.
I don't see this as government out of control. I think it's just a very bad, if not absolutely stupid decision made by a government board. I'm sure there are plenty of things done right by the B.C. Ministry of Children and Family Development but this clearly is not one of them.
I think you have it wrong to paint an entire segment of the government as unnecessary and not worthy of "expenditures" because they "got it wrong on this one".
