The Winners of the 2018 Teddy Awards!
Oh BOY did the government waste some of our cash in 2018. Most notably with the PM's trip to India ($1.6 million) but also with some hilarious federal and municipal offenses, such as:
Federal – Global Affairs Canada for spending $127,000 on crystal glassware and $25,000 on 86 seat cushions, among other extravagant purchases.
Federal – Shared Services Canada for sending employees home (twice) and spending $18,000 fumigating an office after a (harmless) spider scare.
And my personal favourite:
Municipal – The Rural Municipality of Clayton, Sask., for spending $340,000 on a bridge that collapsed on the day it opened.
