Big Flying Bill for CIDA

Here's ironic news from the Canadian Press.

The head of Canada's aid agency and two senior staff spent almost $40,000 on first-class airfare alone to attend a conference on aid effectiveness in west Africa.

Participants at the international forum in Accra, Ghana discussed how to get the "best bang for the buck," says a related press release.

But a review of travel and hospitality records filed by the Canadian International Development Agency shows staff routinely pay many times the cost of flying economy in favour of business class.
