$8.8 Billion in Pre-Election Spending

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has been adding up the bill. It all rather leaves me speechless.
The Harper government's pre-election spending is out of this world. The group says the Conservatives have doled out a whopping $8.8 billion since June - including a $2,000 grant to commemorate a UFO sighting.

Hey Steve! Fiscal conservative, much?

UPDATE: This Canadian Press report fleshes out where some of the $8.8 billion - and counting - is going and the kind of questions and response it's getting.
