Working in Ottawa today --Just Arm Everyone

Good morning folks, I will be working in Ottawa today.
If you see me, we can share a rant about the ever increasing costs of the G20 summit.
We're now building a fake Lake Muskoka in Toronto for the reporters that can't travel up to see the real one.  Ever hear of a photograph?
Combine that absurdity with hiring extra security to keep an eye on the cooks that were hired to make sandwiches.  Here's an idea, fire the untrustworthy cooks and have the security officers make the sandwiches!
And what the hell, fire the guy that hired the cooks too.
Don't get me wrong, I think the idea and practice of getting together and discussing solutions to common problems is grand, but let's not spend our way into more problems.
Current cost, about $35 for every man, women and child in Canada.
Of course this pales to the ridiculous cost of the U.S.'s war on terror, would have been more economical to have just equipped every American with body armor, a side arm, health care and an education.
