For all her pontifications regarding Canada’s under-privileged communities, Canadian Governor General Mary Simon doesn’t walk the talk. Lavishing in a life of luxury at the expense of Canadian tax-payers is more Ms. Simon’s style.

“The Governor General spent more on fancy rides in four days than the average Canadian makes in a whole year,” said federal director Franco Terrazzano from the Canadian Tax Federation.
