Cardscam

Once again, Captain Ed is right on the leading edge of what's going on in Canadian politics, an odd hobby for someone from Minnesota.

His latest, an Ontario government scandal that, while apparently non-political, has cost taxpayers untold millions, with little or nothing to show for it.

Just goes to show, aways make sure someone is keeping track of the company credit card.

On a related note, it appears the lines have been clearly drawn in terms of naming conventions; anything bad happening south of the 49th parallel must be suffixed with the infamous "-gate" while everything north gets the now all too familiar "-scam". We did go through our "boondoggle" phase, but I guess it was decided, and rightfully so, to switch to "-scam" as our suffix of choice in describing governmental scandals. Boondoggle just made everything sound a little to funny and hard to take serious.
