Your Tax Dollars At Work

Posted on Updated on

Drinks at Cunningham’s: $11.75
Supper for two at Bellevue Resto-Grill: $54.25
Ice cream at la Crème de la Crème: $7.80
Taking a piss in the $250K toilet: Priceless

Paris has the Eiffel Tower. Rome has the Colosseum. London has Big Ben. Montreal has the Olympic Stadium. But now Ste.Anne de Bellevue holds the bragging rights – our council has just approved the purchase of a state of the art toilet that will actually clean up after itself, how can you resist such a feature?

Price tag is an estimated quarter of a million dollars.

If we can spend that much on one toilet, just imagine how much the PPU costs could run – and yes, you would be the ones paying for it. But seriously how can the council, despite our clear and vocal protestations, approve such an expenditure. How can a small town, during an economic downturn to boot, waste its taxpayers dollars in such an irresponsible manner?

At least 2 of the 4 council members, Paola and Ryan, had the good sense to vote with their citizens – they both voted against this ridiculous golden toilet.

I hope the other 4 will do the right thing and resign since their interests are obviously elsewhere.
