Exclusive: Deputy minister scales back military ceremony after quarrel over $100,000-plus price tag
from National Post
A plan by military brass to spend $107,000 on a change of command ceremony earlier this year sparked a heated battle inside National Defence headquarters in Ottawa over the proper way to spend taxpayers’ money. Ultimately, deputy Defence minister Jody Thomas refused to approve the expense and the generals were forced to scale back the cost of the May 4th ceremony to around $24,000, Postmedia has confirmed.
