Won’t it be nice to have 56 coat hook for your bathroom robe worth a staggering $5,000 paid for by someone else? The taxpayer.
That’s exactly what the Trudeau liberals approved to renovate a office building in downtown Ottawa, on top of $416,000 other renovation expenses for the building only two years old.
Among the taxpayer-funded renovations carried out to the 17-floor Elgin Street office tower since the Liberal government came to power: $52,413 to build a bike storage room; $59,451 for new furniture; and $3,426 to “modify the lighting to an existing quiet room” by installing a window film and a dimmer switch.
The largest expenses were $131,640 for acoustical panels and another $75,781 for a “demountable partition.”
Some renovations were carried out for safety reasons, such as $4,562 to remove a tripping hazard, or $772 for two convex mirrors to cover an area between the freight elevator and a blind corner.
The liberals haven’t said what the coat hooks were made of, maybe gold? What do you think?
