A Costly Commons Vote, Thank You Stronach

The NDP budget amendment will add $4.6-billion to federal spending over the next two years. It cost Canadian taxpayers $242-million each time one of the NDP's 19 members voted yea for the budget bill on Thursday. If Belinda Stronach had voted nay, the budget would have been defeated. Instead, the Speaker broke the 152-152 tie.
