Victoria spends $13 million on advertising

BC taxpayers shelled out $13 million on BC government advertisement.

  • Most of that money was spent on routine communications activities, such as translating the budget into different languages and placing want ads for government jobs. But it also shelled out nearly $300,000 to get its message out during last fall's illegal teachers strike.

As many as needed! We need every language to be covered. Equality for all!

I agree, two wrongs make a right...

They have Sara MacIntyre to run their PR war on illegal teacher strikes... $300,000 was probably for the ammunition.

Sarcasm off.
