In the case of today's little get together with Mr. Skulsky and the Boys down at the BC Place, and not for the first time...
A mere $2.7 million.
Bob Mackin had the story ages ago in BIV. Here's a small chunk his lede (but go read it all, especially for the shillophantic attempts to justify the largesse from PavCo):
...The service plan for BC Pavilion Corp. (PavCo), released with today's budget, shows a $2.7 million contribution from the provincial government "to assist in securing an event in 2014."
The $2.7 million figure also shows up beside "contribution for Grey Cup" in the 2012-13 fiscal forecast...
And the kicker?
According to the whispers on the Twittmachine at least, after the phot-op Ms. Clark did NOT face the music from the media on other matters that actually mean something of substance to the public at large.
As for facing the music from the public itself?
