ORNGE - $1.3 billion. (The actual waste and corruption is probably $500 million?)
Toronto G20 - $1 billion plus. (Mainly as corruption but also to buy the police the toys they need to keep us down and make us stay at home, too frightened to protest)
Afghanistan Occupation - $18 billion (To prop-up an unpopular government of warlord narco-gangsters and pedophiles)
I can't resist quoting this portion from that CTV story:
Um, actually fuckwad, you've been miserly when it comes to looking after the soldiers wounded and traumatized to gratify your imperialist masturbation fantasies.Harper also restated that Canada will end its military commitment in the country in 2011. The report estimated how much that commitment, from 2002 until 2011, will cost the taxpayers."I know it is a lot of money but nobody in Canada is going to say you are spending too much for Canadians who are putting their lives on the line," Harper said.
Vancouver Olympdicks - $1 billion dollars (This is a conservative estimate and involves deducting the physical assets that were built with the money. For a party for the middle and upper classes that caused Vancouver's homeless population to triple and which was used to justify slashes to other programs.)
$118.3 billion dollars. Flushed down the crapper. For bullshit policies.
