We’re talking thousands of dollars here, not billions.
Your agent is more concerned with wasting billions of dollars on an ill-thought-out scheme to build an award-winning light-rail project simply because the spending is so ridiculously high and that expenditure is so obviously transparent. Someone hopes to build a legacy from this.
But we’ve gone through the particulars of LRT many, many times before. Strangely one never sees that discussed in the major media outlets in town. Odd.
Frankly, it matters little whether councillors from their office budgets embroider jackets with their vaunted titles or distribute key chains with their names on them. It would be preferable not to have them doing that but such acts are small compared to the big issues on Laurier Avenue.
In other words under normal circumstances, one really shouldn’t care about these budgets very much. It creates a few titters among some members of the public but that’s about all.
But you have to draw the line on paying lobbyists to do research out of a councillor’s office budget. That’s unacceptable no matter how worthy the cause.
