I think I'm supposed to be either surprised or shocked, but I'm fast losing the capacity for either. The spin will be "it's just a coincidence", Liberal ridings did not receive any special treatment. Last election it was Liberal ridings that seemed to have the same sort of luck with Visitor Visas. With the kind of luck they have, more Liberals should be buying 6/49 tickets.
Grit ridings got 79% of federal funding for Canada Day
Quebec also received disproportionate share of cash for celebrations

Glen McGregor, The Ottawa Citizen
Published: Saturday, January 14, 2006

A disproportionate share of federal funding for celebrations of Canada Day and other national holidays was given to organizations in ridings held by Liberal MPs.

A little more than 79 per cent of the $7.5 million provided since the last election through Canadian Heritage's Celebrate Canada program funded projects based in Liberal ridings, a Citizen analysis shows.

As well, projects based in Quebec received more than half of the total amount spent by the national program.

The government approved funding for more than 1,600 projects to mark Canada Day, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, and the lesser-known holidays Canadian Multiculturalism Day and National Aboriginal Day between the end of June 2004 and last October.

The Citizen matched the addresses listed for the holiday projects to their electoral districts. Those based in Liberal ridings received $5.9 million, or about four times the $1.5 million for those in ridings held by all opposition MPs combined.

Before the federal election was called, the Liberals held 133, or about 43 per cent, of the 308 seats in the House of Commons.
There's only one way to put an end to this.
