Editor: Whose money was allegedly misappropriated by Senator Duffy?
Whose money was it that paid for the year-long investigation by the RCMP? Whose money will be used for a very lengthy trial, probably costing many millions? If the accused is convicted, whose money will be used to pay for his incarceration and rehabilitation?
The answer is you, the taxpayer, will bear the cost.
It is amazing that one citizen can singlehandedly change the political landscape of a nation. Mr. Duffy may well become the most important Islander in history.
Meanwhile, taxpayers’ money flows unrelentingly down the 1864 drain — bread and circuses.
