His Highness Must Fly in Style

In March of 2007, taxpayers were upset to learn that his highness was spending $2000.00 an hour to travel on military jets, too good to fly commercial: Harper called hypocrite over usage of jets
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been flying in military jets to Conservative events and even a hockey game — despite having once railed against their use by the previous Liberal government.

Invoices obtained by the Canadian Press show Harper flew Challenger executive jets three times in 2006 — and the Conservatives only fully reimbursed the military for one of the flights, which are estimated to cost more than $2,000 per hour.
Last night the royal entourage spent $3285.00 per hour to jet to a hockey game in Boston. King Steve paid for the hockey tickets himself (wink, wink), and will now reimburse the cost of a commercial flight.

How about the 11 bodyguards, needed to fuel Harper's paranoia?

If he wants to go to a hockey, drive or take a bus. He's telling us all to tighten our belts, while he just keeps adding notches to his won.
