  1. So, taxpayers give the federal government money to provide services. That level then gives some to FedDev Ontario. They give some to SD&G Community Futures Development Corporation who then give some to the public.

    That is a lot of administration cost, has anyone every performed an audit to see if jobs are being created? That the jobs is actually needed?

  2. Thinking we may have to form another group of activists and start picketing in SD&G. **s**

  3. Why is better to make fun of a comment or question than actually propose or work towards a betterment? Taxpayers are not being treated very well with all of this “redistribution” of our tax money.

    Maybe we can be called Bloc QuebecNOT then stella! LOL

  4. How much does it cost for the building they are housed in?

    It seems pretty extravagant for a business in the business of busniess and money.

    How much money was spent in aquiring this $347,725.

  5. $884,800 could be used for waste to energy facility research….

    Can’t anyone see garbage is the largest un-natural natural resouce on the planet……and here we give money to social goups and relatively insignificant businesses…in the grand scheme of things that is.

  6. hailey brown, there is so much money going out to so many sources, I doubt anyone really knows where it all goes.
    I keep harping on L’Assemblée de la francophonie de l’Ontario, but they were able to get over 700,000 dollars last year from one federal government ministry alone. For what? To help all Canadians? No!

    Eric most of those organizations dubble dip they receive money from the feds as well as Ontario grants thenas well there is the trillium foundation as well giving grants .

    Where else does the 624 million for bilingualism from Ontario go.

    Federally the 100 government departments admitted they did not know how much their department spent on bilingualism and Language training.

    Thinking Julie.L. you should form an anti English activist group and start picketing All government entities to hire ALL francophone bilingual,so that 83% of the population has no chance to work for their own government .
    Call it the EFS -Ethnocentric Francophone Society
