Off-book Oda

Take note, failing entrepreneurs: if you can't report a profit, just don't report your expenses. That's right. Take a page right from the Conservatives' accounting manual.

The NDP has revealed that cabinet minister Bev Oda took thousands of dollars in publicly-paid for hospitality and limo rides -- perks that she never bothered to report publicly.

The Conservatives' sterling defence: Harper cabinet ministers are spending far less on travel and hospitality than Liberals.

That may well be true, but if the Harper cabinet isn't disclosing their real spending, what kind of defence is saying that they are spending less than the last guy anyway?

Heck, if that's your defence, why not just report ZERO?

Honestly, where is this government’s fake accountability for their fake frugality?
