What? These demonstrators are also the taxpayers and taxpayers are paying for the $2 million fake lake. Overall the cost for the G8 and the G20, $1.2 billion. All taxpayers' money. Even the foreign media has criticized this extravagance and some US media has called it a boondoggle. The President of France, Sarkozy, said that he would spend one tenth of that amount when he hosts the G20 next year in France.
Harper spent $1.2 billion because he could and hence is ripping off taxpayers during these economic hard times and unemployment. So who is the thug here? Maybe he will call himself a sensitive thug as he did not stand outside and shout. How dare anyone question his lavishness?
