Did you hear about this latest bilingualism fiasco?
It turns out the federal government is dishing out about $275,000 a year to pay 344 foreign affairs bureaucrats bilingualism bonuses even though they don’t qualify.
In some cases, the bureaucrats receiving the $800 a year bonuses haven’t mastered both official languages and in other cases they are working in posts not designated as bilingual.
Just one question.
Weren’t these non-bilingual government employees wondering why they were getting bilingualism bonuses?
I guess they just figured were part of some new government program.
Just like government sometimes pay farmers not to grow crops, maybe these employees believed they were being paid not to be bilingual.
One more sad example of your tax dollars at work.
