Harper Spends $90k of Our Money/Day to Spin Us on His Cuts

The Harper government is paying consultant Deloitte Inc. almost $90,000 a day for advice on how to manage the cuts.

via Harper personally approved $22,000 tab for visiting bureaucrats – The Globe and Mail.

I am flabbergasted to read this entire article about money Harper personally signed off on to wine and dine the global elite/1% in OECD contempt-fests.

But I am more stunned by the sentence quoted above, which appeared at the very end of the piece. Despite the tens of thousands of dollars spent on single events, why in the name of all that is not-so-contemptuous and oh-so-righteous, was the article NOT about the $90,000 that our federal government is giving to corporate washing machines to spin the austerity/theft of social programs that will cover the corporate tax cuts, prisons and F35s?

I think Dean Beeby dropped the ball here.

So here’s a suggestion: email the prime minister at pm@pm.gc.ca and let him know that you don’t want him to spend $90,000/day on spin doctors to sell us cuts to our social programs. Just because HE wants to get rid of government doesn’t mean we want to.

And share your comments/tears/anger/frustration/resolutions in Twitter with the #90Kspin hashtag. And share your views with your favourite [or all] NDP leadership candidates also in Twitter.

That is all.
