Liberals paid $1 Million dollars for Canada logo... 
(en francais)

the worst part is, we already owned the damn thing!
Feds' million-dollar baby

The federal Liberal government allowed the word Canada and the Canadian flag to be used to launder money.

In March of 2004, Canadians learned that they paid almost $1 million for the development of the "Canada" logo -- that simply consists of the word: Canada with a small Canadian flag above the last letter "a".

The logo -- also called the Canada wordmark -- can be found on most government websites, on all federal government buildings and also at special events sponsored by the feds.

In previously secret Liberal cabinet documents, made public as a result of the inquiry by Justice John Gomery into the federal Liberal government's sponsorship scandal, it was revealed eight Liberal-friendly advertising firms charged taxpayers $989,000 for "development and consulting" of the Canada logo.

But now, it turns out, the wordmark was developed long ago.
It really makes you wonder what other little timebombs are waiting to go off in Ottawa.
