Taxpayer tab for Conservative in-and-out scheme litigation over $1 million

Another reminder of the Harper Conservatives' wise use of taxpayer funds, the latest tally for the in-and-out litigation in which the Conservatives are suing Elections Canada and we the taxpayer are picking up the tab: "Legal fees mount in Tory case against Elections Canada." The report notes a judge in the litigation getting testy over Conservative wrangling causing expense to the public. Interesting. costs for the dispute have likely risen to at least $1.4 million, including the undisclosed litigation costs for the Conservatives.
Merry Christmas, Canadians!
