Always got time for Tim Hortons
Jim Flaherty's budget speech:
Canadian families and businesses have accepted the need for restraint. Fairness requires that government too should have to keep costs under control.
Later that day...
OTTAWA — A day after Finance Minister Jim Flaherty promoted government restraint to balance the budget, he reportedly spent $3,100 of taxpayers' money to fly to London, Ont., in a private jet for a photo-op at Tim Hortons.
That's one expensive cup of coffee.
