G20 Costs finally Revealed

CANADA - A partial breakdown of contracts from the G20 in Toronto and G8 summits have finally been revealed. They include:

$315,000 for high-end furniture

$4.4 million for the infamous security fence

$1.5 million for exhibition materials

$20 million for RCMP hotel rooms, food, equipment and transportation.

$7,726,235 for “protection services.”

$1.7 million for VIP motorcades

$2.4 million for brand new unmarked cars

$85,000 for RCMP snacks

$22,585 for RCMP mass casualty kits

$20,000 for RCMP tactical medical kits

$163,180 for RCMP camera equipment

$282,412 for RCMP “geomatics” or GPS equipment

$420,000 for “standard furniture”

$246,000 for "a living wall"

$26,661 for electronic mosquito traps

$74,898 for defibrillators

$14,049 for RCMP glow-sticks

And this is just PART of the $1.1 billion which was completed wasted on the G20 summit.

So yeah... Stephen Harper's Conservative government and the RCMP are officially corrupt. This kind of ridiculous spending when we're trying to recover from a recession is just irresponsible and should be criminal.
