Mr.Harper goes to China. The big news out of this visit is that he has "borrowed" 2 panda bears for 2 Canadian zoos for the next 10 years. China is charging 1 million dollars a year for the "rental" of these cute bears(10 million in total) . It will cost about 200 thousand dollars per year to provide the bamboo necessary for these cute bears to eat.
We are told our economy is not in the best shape. We have many people unemployed and hungry and cold. We have hospitals that could use more doctors and nurses. We have a terrible situation in ATAWAPISKAT.
As cute as these bears may ...it seems to me that priorities are a bit mixed up here.
