Theft, Fraud and Losses cost taxpayers $100-million last year according to the 2006 public accounts.
Some of the losses include:
Loss of a Canoe (Department of Fisheries and Oceans): $390
Countless lost cell phones, blackberries, laptops and keys.
Some losses are legitimate. Hard to fault anyone for the loss of tables and kitchen articles following "explosion of butane container." Cost: $1,150.
