The annual cost of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office has ballooned to nearly $10 million, a jump of 30 per cent since 2008. Clearly, Harper is a hypocrite when it comes to Canadian tax dollars.
Two years ago, on the eve of the recession, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said: "We cannot ask Canadians to tighten their belts during tougher times without looking in the mirror."
Clearly, he and Harper are full of CRAP on this issue.
I hope Michael Ignatieff and the Grits play this issue for all its worth, reminding Canadians that Harper is the worst manager of the public purse we have ever seen. Harper is spending more than any government in history. We are throwing away billions on G20 summits, high-priced, sole-sourced military equipment and expensive communications lackeys surrounding the Prime Minister.
For those who think Rob Ford's win in Toronto is good news for big spender Stephen Harper, think again...lol
