Conservative Pork Barrelling of Canada continues

Looks like the cat is out of the bag in regards to the infrastructure funding. 78% of the funding will be towards Conservative ridings, so the majority of infrastructure money will not be spent in Toronto, or Montreal. As they are the red outposts of Canada.

This is typical nasty Conservative spin, and we really need to examine these spending issues in both the committees and the House of Commons. It also shows why we need to hold the Conservatives accountable, with their economic updates. These types of spending plans are unacceptable, and Canadians should not be punished if they did not vote for a minority government.
