Who pays $16 for orange juice?

Just so the Tories know, orange juice is on this week for $8 for two 1.75L containers.

At last that zany bunch in Ottawa known as the Harper Tories have given me a financial number I can relate to.

I can’t get my head around $35 billion for planes, even $1,000 a day limos to ferry ministers from a five star hotel to a five star plus is beyond me.

But $16 is a figure I can relate to, it’s about the amount I have left over every month. So when International Cooperation Minister Bev Oda spends $16 on a glass of orange juice I can visualize $16. Just so the Tories know, orange juice is on this week for $8 for two 1.75L containers.

You can get 13 glasses of orange juice from a container so at the Tory price that’s $208 per container. If I had the orange juice concession for the Tory caucus I could take in about $2,600/day, enough for two limos for a day.
