Tory Ridings Get Bulk Of Stimulus Money

This just out from the Ottawa Citizen:

"A joint investigation by the Ottawa Citizen and Halifax Chronicle-Herald shows that 57 per cent of the projects with more than $1 million in federal funding nationwide went to Conservative ridings. The party holds only 46 per cent of the seats in the House of Commons. Blue ridings therefore received 23 per cent more $1-million-plus projects than if the projects were divided evenly among all ridings.

The difference between government and opposition ridings is particularly pronounced in Quebec, where Tory ridings received 22 per cent of large projects, although the party holds only 13 per cent of the ridings, which means they received 62 per cent more per riding than if the money was divided evenly."

And it just gets better & better! Read it here.

I shall continue to delete your comments. You have nothing relevant to say & your discourse is infantile. You spread your NONsense throughout the Liberal blogosphere but you are not welcome here.
