Political panel, Feb 7: How much sick leave, exactly?
It's not that simple a question, as it turns out: how many sick days do public servants take a year? Treasury Board president Tony Clement lumped in paid and unpaid days when he came up with the number 18.2. But the Parliamentary Budget Officer says unpaid days shouldn't count, and therefore the number is more like 11.5.
To sort out the numbers, and what they mean, our political panel of Julie van Dusen and Susan Delacourt joined us.
