One thing not mentioned by David Morrison is the expense ratepayers shell out to ship the InterGroup to Vancouver.
Since we’re not bringing them to Whitehorse, I guess this must be the bargain part the deal.
This sounds like the feeding trough for political appointees. It doesn’t matter how you package or spin this, it’s feeding time and the ratepayers are paying for it.
I fail to see the point of everyone getting together at great public expense.
Northwestel has a great Teleconferencing system that would greatly reduce meeting expenses.
E-mails are practically free, and there’s always the telephone.
But why do something to save the ratepayers’ money when, after the meetings, a short, free vacation can be had by all in Vancouver.
