What can $610 million buy?


An interesting question has been thrown around a lot since Liberal leader Justin Trudeau called a snap election. The campaign cost 610 million + dollars of taxpayer funds and left taxpayers asking…what else could that money have been spent on?

Heres what the federal government could have done with the extra 610 million dollars they treated as loose change. The next time they’re looking for ways to burn a few million extra bucks, perhaps they’ll take a look at this list:
