Royal Wedding Security to Cost $860,000,000 Less than G20 Toronto Security

This should hardly raise an eyebrow, as Stephen Harper has already been proven Canada's most trustworthy and competent political leader  by the Nanos Leadership Index.

Anyway, it's apples and oranges. The Royal Wedding may be the largest security event ever in British history, dwarfing the G20 event held in 09.

It's estimated the event will now cost as much as £20m, which dwarfs the £7.4m price of security at the G20 protests in London in 2009.

Bur clearly, England is a much smaller country, and video cameras are already installed across the country, so obviously costs in Canada would run a good 100 times more - it's only logical.

But, if there were any confusion whatsoever, (and there absolutely is not, as the Conservatives wrote a report that, by pure accident, falsely quoted the auditor general stating that the G20 meeting was very well managed), no need to worry - the Auditor General's final report on the matter will be presented to Parliament after the election.

Furthermore, if there was anything to all this white noise and bickering, surely that crafty newsman, Peter Mansbridge, would have nailed Harper to the wall during his recent interview.

No, there is nothing here at all but old fashioned English thriftiness.  Now go watch hockey!
