Double Summit most Wasteful Spending
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has handed out awards for wasteful government spending. No surprise, the double G8/20 summit with its fake lake got the top spot. While the summits are a good thing, as leaders can get to talk with each other and forge bonds, there were a lot of unnecessary items that the Tories did not need to pay for, like the fake lake, $14 000 for glowsticks and a security fence in the middle of downtown Toronto. This could have been handled far better by maybe, not using money in a crazy way, a wasteful way.
