If we're to call the government the "Harper Government" then this makes perfect sense. Why should one expect basic levels of disclosure when it's their money anyway?
And Benzo, this goes beyond simple spectrum debates and politics. The conservatives like to trot out empty ad campaigns that cost tens of millions (with no information on how to access grants, programs, services etc) featuring all the colours, genders, classes, ages, and abilities in the rainbow. Then have their politics reflect that the only people who matter in this country are white, mid-forties males with a mid-sized penis.
