Canada's "Captain Democracy" Stephen Taylor fluffingly and lovingly reports on the adventures of his BFF Stephen Harper:

Indian Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl said that an unexpected fire in another native community meant having to replace the school at a cost of $13 million” (Toronto Star)
Wow. So you can build a whole new school in a native community for $13 million. That is some missed opportunity there, wouldn't you say, Mr. Taylor? But feel free to keep lecturing us on the topic of good economic stewardship. We need the chuckles.
