For the record according to the city's check register, here are the councillors costs (reported so far) for their annual boondoggle to the UBCM: Bonnell - $645; Cobb - $1045; CAO Macdonald - $1077; Smith - $1997; Walters - $1645. Obviously this isn't a reflection of the true cost of attending it because year after year, council approves a $35000 budget for all council members and the CAO to attend (the highest in the province per capita). Looks like someone has finally dethroned city council highroller of expenses Lori Walters as councillor Smith appears to have also found a fondness for the public trough, outspending one other councillor by three times. Given the extreme differences in their reported expenses, makes you wonder if they all attended the same UBCM convention! It's clear this is not a full and accurate accounting of the true costs of council to attend and only councillors out of pocket expenses are being reported clearly. What about the rest?

Gee, who would have thought these councillors would take a liking to the trough?
Aren't these the same people who unemployed 8 workers and stopped clearing the sidewalks? Government money for me, not for thee.
