ONE BILLION?!

Heck, if they were hosting another 398 summits, they could just as well have gone to war.

Lets see...

Maintained regulation of the banking industry? Check.
Citizens who value honest, hard work and community values rather than "owning more shiny things than my neighbor"? Check.
Government who made a point of staying out of deficit? Check.

What could possibly be the reason Canada managed to stay economically-afloat? :rolleyes: :canadian:

Ahem, we didn't have a recession either but I wouldn't talk to our current clowns in government about that

I sure fuckin' hope we're in good economic shape if we're about to spend over a billion dollars on some international photo-op. $930 million of that billion is for security alone, not accounting for any of the food, fun, and festivities we've planned for the leaders and their entourages. I work downtown Toronto and the last week it has become a shit show. 3 meter high fences installed around the security zones, 5 cops at every street corner, garbage cans and mailboxes removed in case of bombs, they're cutting down all the trees surrounding the area because "their branches could be used as weapons". It's a huge fucking waste of taxpayers money. Only benefit is most employers are giving people Friday off cause the city will be shut down. Long weekend!

Meh. Just put 2000 troops from the Canadian Army arround a bunker with the world leaders put into it. I know Canada has a very big bunker, they filmed it in the Sum of All Fears.

Sure they won't mind staying in a nuclear proof bunker. They're there to work, after all, so it won't be a problem, right?

Sure they can whip up some old army field rations and a propane burner to heat it up. They probably get cable in the bunker too, so they can watch Chuck in the (very few) recesses they find the time to take.

But where would they put the elaborate artificial lake?

Meh, get a big bath tub. I'm sure they could stretch to a nice jacuzzi, perhaps there's a used one available?

Hold the conference in Newfoundland - no one will find it to protest, the locals will give them a very big welcome - not.

The image of G20 delegates all getting a screeching warms me heart.

But that's socialism.

But then how do you know you're better than everyone else?

But...

... fuck. :\
