Toronto PanAm bigwigs expense $10,000 on car washes (for their free limos)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The Toronto PanAm Games are finally over, and we're finding out now where some of those billions of dollars went.

One expense in particular stands out:

Those $400,000 a year PanAm bureaucrats invoiced $10,000 for car washes. For cars they got for free anyhow.

Were they being washed with champagne by $250/hour lawyers?

Now Toronto is considering a bid to host the Olympics.

Ordinary locals may be indifferent or even hostile to this bid, but you can bet those same bureaucrats are all for it.

Ontario will end up like Greece unless the reckless spending and borrowing stops!

With this government it was only a matter of time before we were getting golden showers.

One of my few criticisms of conservatives (although I consider myself one) in general has been the lack of concern for the poor, however stories like these demonstrate liberal governments despite their rhetoric aren’t any better. The way they abuse tax payers money to pad the wallets of those who need is least is a disgrace. Face they are out for themselves at our expense. What is also sad about Toronto’s Olympic bid is we have demonstrated we have learned nothing about Greece’s demise right down to following them to the Olympics when we can’t afford it. They should add a new track and field event in which we could claim gold for setting the new record of how fast we can run ourselves into debt. Our doom it appears has been foreshadowed.

This $10,000 the main stream media will just ignore because it is a Liberal government in charge. Now if it was a Conservative government, even $16.00 would make the main stream media scream bloody murder!

This is just sad. And when the car washes were put on the taxpayer’s dime do you think anyone gave it a second thought? Why can’t this type of abuse be stopped before it starts? After all, we have seen this many times before.

The Liberal party of ON needs to cover any overages, since they are responsible for this gong show, going over budget. Budgets mean nothing to Liberals, NDP or the Green machine May.

Wait until the Ontario Lieberal Gov’t announces the Pam Scam Games deficit and bullies to get the rest of Canada taxed more to pay for it!

Ezra, you cannot expect these execs, who are even as we speak living on a shoestring wage, to pay for there own car washes! That’s just asking way too much!

No surprises here – the elite, entitled and unaccountable need to spend a bit of time with me – sweating in the hot sun and fixing heavy equipment while fighting mosquitoes.

A bit of sweat and grease and blisters never hurt an honest working man.

I love the way you dig out all these interesting stories that we would never hear otherwise. Thanks for telling the rest of the story . I always love your reporting.

Just noticed John Tory has floated the idea of a Worlds Fair. Like all political hacks he comes up short. If Toronto wanted to host the World’s Fair he should have proposed it for 2017 Canada’s 150 birthday. Here we are just two years away from our nation founding and I have heard nothing planed. For over six years I have been trying to stimulate interest for Canada’s 150 anniversary. If you were alive in 1967 you will recall the party we had all across Canada culminating with EXPO 67 in Montreal. Up to today I have heard nothing to celebrate our 150 year anniversary. Back in 67 before we had multi culture we were Canadians and very proud to say so.
(One little two little three Canadians)
We love thee

(Four little five little six little Provinces)
Proud and free
(Now we are ten and the Territories sea to sea)

There’ll be happy times,
Church Bells will ring, ring, ring
It’s the hundredth anniversary of
Ev’rybody sing together!

(Second Chorus)
Rah! Vive le Canada!
Three cheers Hip, Hip, Hooray!
Le centenaire,
That’s the order of the day

Merilly we roll along
Together all the way
I can still remember standing on top of tables in bars belting out this song, now they would arrest you for disturbing the peace

NO amount of money will ever make this Ontario government look squeaky clean!
