Spend a billion, save a million, come out smelling like a f'ing rose.
Dat be duh Tories.
CTV News reports the Conservative Government will introduce legislation today to scrap old age benefits for prisoners. Inmates aged 65 and older are losing their old-age benefits.
Picking on the weak, the poor, the unloved: It's the Stephen Harper way.
It’s believed the changes would affect 400 inmates in federal prisons, and 600 others in provincial institutions.
The Conservatives say the legislation will save $10 million a year by cutting old-age benefits for older inmates.
BTW, a billion dollars for a three day wankfest, no problem.
Old codger stuck in jail wants to buy a book to read in his cell, problem.
