American Gov't Not Only Money Wasters

Apparently the Canadian government is pretty good at it, too:

Ottawa may have paid tens of thousands of dollars more than it should have for golf balls and other souvenirs to promote Canadian unity, during visits that a witness at the Gomery inquiry described as a "garage sale."

Inquiry co-counsel Guy Cournoyea read from an advertising company invoice the government paid in 1997. The invoice was for books on Rideau Hall, Christmas tree ornaments and 1,200 golf balls, costing more than $100,000.

Another invoice for more knick-knacks topped $600,000.
