This is a Special Edition CotD which was inspired by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) recent news release   “Taxpayers Federation presents Teddy Waste Awards for worst government waste” (see link: ).  From the website article The Teddy, a pig-shaped trophy the CTF annually awards to governments’ worst waste offenders, is named after Ted Weatherill, a former federal appointee who was fired in 1999 for submitting a raft of dubious expense claims, including a $700 lunch for two.

Here is the video link to the recent CTF event in Calgary  “Golden Pigs for Politicians – Government Waste Awards” ( ).
