$2.5 million buys a lot of nights in a hotel room – 14,096 to be exact. To put that it context it’s one hotel room a night, each night, every night from today until March 31, 2045, not accounting for leap years.
Meanwhile victims’ services are underfunded. Accused criminals are being given $2000 cheques because the courts are underfunded, and municipalities are struggling under the weight of court security costs.
