Welcome to Our Nightmare

In the run up to the G20 summit happening in downtown Toronto, international journalists were treated to Conservative transparency [Toronto Star, International media learn the ways of Toronto — and politicians]

This is what the foreign and local media wanted to know: Will local businesses be reimbursed for G20 losses?

They leaned in, recorders extended.

“A protocol mechanism is in place to deal with all those concerns,” said a practised Rob Moore, minister of state for tourism and small business. [...]

“So you’ll compensate?” a local reporter prodded.

“Thank you,” Moore replied, stepping away.

“Did he answer the question?” asked Viviana Mazza, a reporter with Italy’s Corriere della Sera.
No, Viviana, he did not. But, that's what we've come to expect from this government.
