I'm not buying it ... oh wait a minute as a taxpayer I already have had to 'buy' the wasted hotel rooms from Premier Redford's London expedition. The trip, planned during the busiest and most expensive time of the Olympics was initially supposed to cost just over 84 thousand dollars. Now that the bills have come it the actual 'total' was 518 thousand dollars. And buried in that total was 113 thousand dollars in hotel rooms that weren't used. In the government's logic it said the 113 thousand dollars should be seen as a wise use of taxpayers dollars. Earlier this year it decided to reduce the delegation by 18 people, so 123 thousand dollars was saved. Are you still following? And when the government tried to sell back the hotel rooms it was told the market had 'softened' and the rooms couldn't be sold. The market had softened during the Olympics? That in itself is a mind-boggler. But more mind boggling is the government's attempt at saying it was saving us money. Alot more money could have been saved if it stuck to the original budget of 84 thousand dollars. Oh right, I forgot, with this government making budgets and sticking to them are two different things.
