I’m dis­gusted once again

The Hamilton Spectator - - Comment -

RE: ADRI­ENNE CLARK­SON AND HOME­LESS­NESS STO­RIES

Story 1 tells read­ers of the ex­is­tence of a lit­tle-known gov­ern­ment perk al­low­ing ex-gov­er­nors gen­eral the use of tax­payer funded ex­pense ac­counts for life. But for a Na­tional Post re­porter who found the sub­mit­ted ex­pense this year of $100,000 by Adri­anne Clark­son (11 years out of of­fice and still billing ex­pense ac­counts) the tax­payer would still be in the dark. This is one year of billing by one ex-gov­er­nor gen­eral.

Story 2 tells us of un­prece­dented lev­els of home­less­ness in Hamil­ton and the need for the money promised, but not de­liv­ered, by the fed­eral gov­ern­ment.

Story 2 meet story 1. I’m dis­gusted ... again.

Gail McKee­gan, Hamil­ton
