Government Choices: Advertising

The AFB has long argued that budgets are always about choices.  Canada is a rich country and governments can and should spend our money on priorities that are important to us.  Today, it was revealed that the Government spent $130 million on Advertising last year alone driven in part by the endless "Economic Action Plan" signs and ads.  When unemployment is sitting above 8%, spending on ads may seem like a poor choice for Canadians' money.
