Stephen Harper wastes $46,000 promoting his economic plan

CANADA - If you took the GO train to Toronto this morning you may have noticed something new. Two big ads on the sides of the train promoting Stephen Harper's "Economic Action Plan". Price tag? $46,000.

#1. This plan was only adopted because the Liberals threatened to force an election.

#2. Harper has been wasting more money on advertising the plan than actually creating jobs. Sure, the GO trains got more advertising revenue, but how does that create jobs And then there's all the other ways they've wasted money, including TV commercials, radio spots and magazine/newspaper ads. Its a huge media blitz... but where is the money actually being spent?

So far the Conservatives have spent over $34 million just on advertising.

#3. The money is only being spent in Conservative ridings in an effort to secure votes in the event of an election. That means major cities are being ignored because the Conservatives only win ridings in rural regions (with the exception of Alberta).

#4. And when they do spend money they keep having little photo ops and ceremonies with giant cheques, sometimes with the Conservative Party logo on it.

It all just stinks of corruption that goes right to the top. Stephen Harper has ignored the reasons why he was elected in the first place and has become obsessed with just trying to hold on to power.
