Go Train Update

Well the Star has picked up on the story of the Conservatives turning Go Train cars into giant “Action Plan” ads that I blogged about earlier this week. It also comes with a better picture of the train car:According to the article the Conservatives claim to have spent $46,000 on turning two cars into giant ads that run on the Lakeshore line. Go Transit says that normally costs $75,000 to wrap a train car for two weeks but is prohibited from revealing the details in their contract with the Conservatives. This means that the Conservatives could have spent as much as $150,000 on the Go Train ads alone. I think it’s more than clear by now that the “Action Plan” has very little to do with creating jobs for Canadians and everything to do with trying to get Harper his much coveted majority.
