Recycled promise heralds election

Tuesday, in what appeared as electioneering, federal treasury board president Vic Toews announced $73,000 in funding to Whitehorse.

Tuesday, in what appeared as electioneering, federal treasury board president Vic Toews announced $73,000 in funding to Whitehorse.

But that money was actually given to the city by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities a year ago.

Toews was re-announcing a garbage-cart pilot project, which is already well underway.

The year-long garbage-cart initiative began last summer, and city staffers have promised to deliver a final report on the project this summer.

In January 2007, Toews was shuffled out of his position as Conservative attorney general by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
