No spending is too much for Harper

Postby French Castanut » Nov 5th, 2012, 8:41 pm

This is pure waste of money.

Harper sent his limos by plane for his visit in India, at the cost of 550,000$.

Opposition parties criticize Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has sent two armored limousines in India where he began an official visit Monday.

Harper moves there aboard two black limousines registered in Ontario, apparently for security reasons the RCMP refused to specify. This decision is based on "operational considerations" after "a threat assessment," is she merely said.

These armored cars toured the world transport aircraft at taxpayer expense. At a rate of $ 21,000 per hour, the bill more than $ 550,000.

Spokesman for the NDP Peggy Nash, these expenses seem unjustified when the Harper government asks everyone to tighten their belts.

"India is the largest democracy in the world, she launched the outset of Commons. Only was there no auto taste preservatives? Perhaps they disliked not the color? What was the cost of the limousine transport the Prime Minister and is that the orange juice was included? "She is ridiculed by reference to orange juice $ 16 in London of former minister International Cooperation Bev Oda.

In the House, the Minister of Public Safety, Vic Toews, returned the ball to the RCMP.
Indignant, the interim Liberal leader Bob Rae recalled that India could easily provide an armored car to Mr. Harper, which would have saved unjustified expenditure.

For its part, the Bloc leader, Daniel Paille, did not know what to think of this case.
"It's tricky, he has said. You can not actually know if the Prime Minister is the subject, because of its foreign policy, specific threats. "

That said, it is "exaggerated" as "small children four to five years" have had to submit to the metal detector Halloween at 24 Sussex Drive, the Prime Minister's residence, and that is confiscated rubber swords.

Mr. Harper had used armored cars provided by India when there was in 2009, recalled Mr. Paillé.

He did the same in Britain, Russia and Australia. For cons, the RCMP had sent armored vehicles in Haiti and Afghanistan.
