The Canadian Taxpayer's Federation releasing their federal "Naughty and Nice" list.

 It's Christmas.  Let's focus on the nice.

Here's a reference to a story we had earlier this year - it's a Global Affairs Canada "whistleblower" who gets on the nice list for providing "important information that allowed the CTF to use access to information laws to uncover wasteful expenditures including $24,000 on 86 seat cushions at the Mexico City embassy and $127,000 on crystal glassware."  Remember that one?   The CTF is saluting "this conscientious government employee for their concern and willingness to act on the abuse of taxpayer dollars."

And, here's news about 12 Members of Parliament who "claimed $0 in office hospitality costs for the first six months of fiscal 2018-19, underscoring careful use of taxpayer dollars truly can cut across party lines."  The list includes Liberals, Conservatives and New Democrats. 

Oh, and local Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan MP Tom Lukiwski is one of the admirable politicians on that list.
