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!

Police kettle Montreal student protesters, arresting 518

Police kettle Montreal student protesters, arresting 518

Police in Montreal moved in on student protesters again Wednesday night, kettling them and making 518 arrests the largest number in one night since the demonstrations began weeks ago.

"This is the 30th night of the protest," one woman told CBC's Tom Parry. "Can you imagine what's going to happen when there's summer festivals? We're going to keep marching. It's not going to stop. Negotiations have to happen."

The Quebec government has offered to return to the bargaining table, but it won't give in on the tuition hike or on another student demand that it scrap its controversial new emergency law that clamps down on protests.
