Life of Reilly on the Taxpayer's Dime

In a story broken by blogger Craig Smith over at Conservative Life, check out CTV's latest Whistleblower, with commentary from the CTF's Tasha Kheiriddin.

Here are some examples from 2003/2004:

800 rooms in Cancun, Mexico
636 rooms in Barbados
523 rooms in San Jose, Costa Rica
290 rooms in Marrakech, Morocco
192 rooms in Casablanca, Morrocco
167 rooms in Montego Bay, Jamaica
107 rooms in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Mexico
98 rooms in Bermuda
93 rooms in Nassau, Bahamas

Your Tax Dollars At Work.

Wow, CTV was only three weeks late on this one. Maybe they need to start watching what some fols are doing, because they could certainyl pick up some ideas.

Honestly, I am amazed by this.

I have a tough time wrapping my mind around the fact that "on average, Ottawa pays for 439 hotel rooms every single night of the year, outside Canada and the U.S. That's some 160,000 room nights annually."
