Conservative Grifter Bev Oda's staff silent on travel expense changes

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/05/30/pol-oda-expenses.html?cmp=rss

International Cooperation Minister Bev Oda's office is refusing to say whether she has paid taxpayers back for any inappropriate travel costs in addition to the lavish hotel and chauffeured car she expensed for a trip to London last summer.

The refusal to provide information comes in the wake of last month's controversy when details emerged about Oda charging taxpayers with a stay at the swanky Savoy hotel in London last June. The room cost more than $600 per night.

Oda was originally supposed to stay at the hotel that was hosting the conference she was attending, but upon arrival in London she booked a room at the Savoy instead. Oda also billed taxpayers about $1,000 per day for a car and driver to transport her to the conference, a short cab ride away from the Savoy.

As my title suggests..just another conservative party grifter living high off of YOUR tax money while we break our back on mimimum wage paying for it. Angry yet?

Don't let the issue of stolen elections through robocalls die! Get Harper & grifter buddies out of office!

2. Complacent Canadians have allowed an inverted regime of justice and fairness

to become entrenched in Ottawa. We have no shortage of laws, and punitive punishments, and relatively high taxes for the masses, while there is little accountability or transparency of government (or big business). Leadership (not wealth) starts at the top and trickles down. Loyalty to any party, system or company should be earned, conditional and never taken for granted.
