Part of the agenda at last July's premiers' conference in Nova Scotia was about saving money and becoming more efficient with regard to health care, prescription drugs and inter-provincial trade and so on.
According to the CTF's review, the three-day summit cost just over $110,055 — $72,691.57 was funded by the Council of the Federation (the provinces) while the Province of Nova Scotia spent approximately $37,000.
It's not a huge amount but here's a brief list of what they spent taxpayer money on:
- 38 crystal whiskey tumblers: $1,653
- 25 cheese boards: $1,625
- 400 reversible microfiber jackets: $35,654
- 25 (limited edition) diamond jubilee leather journals: $1,875
- 27 porcupine quill broaches: $627
