I just watched the news and saw that Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is apologizing for his son's "excessive" dining expense on company credit cards over the last five years.
The PM’s son, Seigo Suga, and other executives from the satellite broadcaster Tohokushinsha Film, had wined and dined people from the country’s Internal Affairs and Communications Ministry, which regulates communications business.
The amount involved? About 0.526 million yen, which is about $6,000 in Canadian dollars. Now compare that with spending by former Thompson-Nicola Regional District CAO Sukh Gill, as reported on by KTW.
No wonder we have no money to fix our roads.
