Mark Hume of the Globe and Mail paid attention to Laila Yuile's "Shadow Tolls" story and the Globe online provides for an interesting and relatively unmoderated discussion. The PAB-bots are quick to respond leaving me to wonder how much the taxpayer pays for 24-7 media monitor service to the Liberal Party. Mind you, they get pretty good mileage out of the paid staff who, by using a variety of names, can appear to be more than they are.
Sometimes Mr. or Ms. Ordinary Reader leaves a comment that is more convincing than all the rest. By example:
RandyShoop: ....the taxpayer pays for everything, we all know that. The question here, that is being asked by the taxpayer is......... how much are we paying ....... who are we paying ......... and are we getting good value for our money. When you go to the store to buy a product the price is on the sticker, you don't just hold your purse open or give them your card and say " Take whatever you want, the price means nothing to me". So .............. who is the dolt.
