Show Notes

Costs for the ArriveCAN app spiralled out of control to $54 million. Despite their failure,
government executives working on the app still took more than $340,000 in bonuses.

Most people spend zero dollars not staying in a luxury hotel room. Well, the feds spent
$600,000 NOT staying in luxury hotel rooms.

All that and more in this week’s Canadian Taxpayers Podcast.
