Our Veterans and homeless people are abandoned, while the government wastes our money on monuments to their own vanity.
The leader of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation Aaron Wudrick has done a great service to Canadians by revealing yet another example of massive government waste.
Check out Wudrick’s tweet below:
Do you like this picture? Because it didn't come cheap: Public Works spent $555,272 on this building wrap on the old Canada Post office in downtown Ottawa, including $82,000 on the design alone. #cdnpolihttps://t.co/XGsulDFLwS pic.twitter.com/nphSF3pLCY

Total waste of taxpayers dollars
As we all know, every dollar the government spends in one place, is a dollar that can’t be spent somewhere else. And, since the government is running deficits and adding to the debt, this waste on a wrap for the Canada Post building not only takes away from important priorities now, but it costs us more down the road.
While many Canadians – including our Veterans and homeless people – are often abandoned, the government somehow thinks it’s appropriate to spend money on a building banner. It’s insulting.
This kind of BS happens under governments of all political stripes, but Trudeau has taken the waste to a new level – especially since his deficits are deficits of choice, not necessity. And as always, Canadian taxpayers get screwed.
