Riddle me this. How many days does it take a Harper cabinet minister to do the right thing? If you're Bev Oda, too many! "Bev Oda coughs up cash for 'ad hoc' London limo rides."
International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda has agreed to repay almost $3,000 she charged taxpayers for “ad hoc requests” of a luxury car and driver while staying at a posh hotel in London. The beleaguered Conservative minister already coughed up $1,353.81 in extra hotel charges this week after The Canadian Press reported she upgraded to the five-star-plus Savoy Hotel for unknown reasons during a conference last June.
The London conference at which Bev ran up the egregious tab occurred in June of last year. It was exposed this week by Canadian Press. So that's close to 11 months. Not good enough.

Well done in dragging it out for a week after being caught and highlighting the Harper crew's hypocrisy though! Splendid.
