And on the maple flag side...

There's this from Cathie.

Oh dear! Did the Harper government lie to us again?
A federal agency created by the Harper government with great political fanfare in 2008 is costing millions of dollars to achieve pretty much nothing.

The Canada Employment Insurance Financing Board has just about everything a budding government agency could want.

So far, it has spent over $3.3 million for new offices, computers and furniture, well-paid executives and staff, travel budgets, expense accounts, board meetings, and lots of pricey consultants.

All that's missing is a reason for it to exist at all.
Personally, I hate it when that happens.

I'm not sure whether this story is going to get the traction it should, but I hope it does/
