Blogging Tory Russ Campbell is outraged -- outraged, I say:
Heritage Minister scolds CBC execs
A Sun Media report that Sylvain Lafrance, a CBC executive vice-president, expensed more than $28,000 on hotels, travel and meals in 2006, has resulted in a public scolding yesterday from Heritage Minister James Moore.
The expenses included almost $6,000 for meals with other CBC managers, and $7,500 on two business trips to Paris. Lafrance’s incurred in-office catering bills of about $15,000 in 2006 and included beer and wine for staff.
And as a similarly-concerned Canadian taxpayer, let me be the first to say, shut the fuck up, Russ. And thanks for playing.
