Stephen Harper wastes $200,000 on consultant phone calls

CANADA - Stephen Harper's Conservative government has set aside $200,000 for consultant phone calls to keep the Prime Minister up to speed on changes in America's war on greenhouse gas emissions.

The $200,000 is to pay for 8 months worth of phone calls from a consultant, who will phone Stephen Harper twice per month to update him on changes within the USA with respect to environmental policy.

Thats a total of 16 phone calls at a rate of $12,500 per call.

Harper could have saved the Canadian tax payers a tonne of money just by phoning US President Barack Obama directly (twice a month if he really wants to) and talking about America's environmental policies... but no! Harper is so inept when it comes to the environment that he to waste $200,000 on hiring an American consultant.

He could get the exact same news just by watching American news channels.

Alternatively he could have just subscribed to some American environmental magazines and told one of his staff to read them and give him a report every 2 weeks. There are much cheaper ways to get the exact same information.

How about we flush more money down the toilet Stephen Harper?
