Harper's schadenfreude

From CBC News:

24% of stimulus projects complete: report

A report cautions that more than $500 million of the funds the federal government earmarked for its stimulus program is in danger of being caught up in delays and never being spent.

Parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page released his third report on the government's spending program Monday, and it found that more than half a billion dollars of the $4-billion fund is in danger of not getting spent before the government cut-off date of March 31, 2011

What exactly could explain more than $500 million dollars of lost expenditure on the part of a government-directed stimulus plan except that Stephen Harper either doesn't give a shit, or takes pleasure in the sight of taxpayer's money going to absolute waste?
