The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has come out with a report exposing the wasteful spending practices of the Western Economic Diversification department.
Called 22 years of pork barrel spending, the CTF report explains how much of the WED spending is more about politics than it is about economic diversification.
It's just the nature of the beast.
And by the way, the Conservative government plans to create two more regional development funds agencies — one for Northern Canada and for Southern Ontario.
So that means taxpayers can expect to roll out even more pork barrels.
