Commonwealth scandal sickening 

Thank you, Tim Bousquet, for exposing the sickening details of how the insiders profit from taxpayers and consumers who, one way or another, pay the bills. I survived the horrors of the John Buchanan years, when playing fast and loose with the public purse was accepted as the colourful folklore of a backward province. Nothing has changed but the focus of attention. Why not loot the municipal treasury (and any other available pots of money) in the name of "Citizens for Halifax," or whatever other "holding company" for the hucksters can be contrived? Pass the Gravol!
