1. Thats nice.

But instead of chasing the pennies, how about naming the 400+ Canadians who are hiding money offshore. Or is there too much old Liberal money invested there. Or perhaps finding out who owns the banana stand that the misappropriated 3 billion is stashed in-

oh look a penny!....

2. hahah

 


It's a start regardless. As far as I am concerned it's about due time that governments, at all levels in the broadest number of fields start posting publicly who is making what. It seems very undemocratic to have citizens in a country tell the majority of the other citizens who are paying their salaries that "you don't need to know anything just trust us".

It's a common theme nowadays...something we need to work towards referring to as a relic of days past.

3. The conservative response to that will be great:

They'll whine about every penny listed in the Liberals' expenses - but will be as fanatical as ever at refusing to discuss their own.

They're basically writing the other parties' campaign ads at this point.
