BUSH GO HOME! Security Costs For George Bush In Canada Costs Taxpayers $500,000!
Government figures reveal the RCMP's security tab for Mr. Bush's first two Canadian speeches this year each ran more than $100,000. Given that he has three more events scheduled next month in Edmonton, Regina and Montreal, this year's cost to taxpayers for his (Bush's) visits is on pace to exceed $500,000.
Security for Mr. Bush's March event in Calgary cost the RCMP $124,000, while a May appearance in Toronto ran up $108,000. In contrast, the security bill to protect Mr. Clinton, who strolled down memory lane on the same stage at the same time as Mr. Bush in Toronto, was far less at $12,000."
