And then there’s Big Daddy.
The recent election of a Bloc Quebecois MP may have cost the Quebec town of Trois-Rivieres a $2-million federal subsidy for its 375th anniversary celebrations, Trois-Rivieres Le Nouvelliste has reported.
On a campaign stop in Trois-Rivieres during the elections, Mr. Harper told Le Nouvelliste that the grant money had already been allocated and that he “was looking forward to working with a Conservative MP.” Mr. Durand had also promised to get the $2-million subsidy if elected.
Trois-Rivieres Mayor Yves Levesque is now accusing the Harper government of being partisan. “So because we voted for the wrong side, because the population voted for the Bloc Quebecois, we won't receive anything for four years,” Mr. Levesque told Radio-Canada. “Tell us that and we'll stop paying taxes.”
Leadership! Accountability! Fuck you!
