Bev Oda's luxurious, tax payer funded lifestyle comes to an end

After months of continued pressure, Minister of International Development, Bev Oda's ridiculously obscene, tax payer funded lifestyle has come to an end: she has resigned. I won't say more here than I said previously, but it is worth marking the occasion by noting that continued public outrage does indeed result in changes, even if they are minor. So continue to be enraged about things like this, and about many more things considerably more important.

It is also worth noting that Bev Oda herself is not the problem, but a symptom of a larger culture of excess with the current Conservative establishment and, more tellingly, a culture that is willing to blatantly overlook excess in deference to the kind of partisan party player that Bev Oda always demonstrated herself to be. Ah well, it is not as if she is going to have trouble in the private sector.
