Faced with record gas prices, the prospect of high inflation, the potential for an imminent, long, deep global recession, poor roads, and poor public transportation, Winnipeg City Council has taken decisive action!
Using public funds previously designated to improve public transportation, the city has given away $7,000,000 to millionaires! No doubt, without public funding, this project never would have happened. Nope. Not a chance.
In exchange, at least, the city did get something to help the poor pay the $20 – $35 admission:
“In return for the subsidy, the city will get reduced admission to the waterpark for low-income families.”
Weee! What a deal! $10 discounts on tickets!
I have a question for my readers: Do businesses regularily give out discounts in order to attract repeat business as part of a mass marketing campaigns? If businesses don’t have things which I call “sales”, then the city is at least getting something back. If they do have these “sale” things, then how much did the city really get in the deal?
But really, who cares?! Water slides!!!!! Bread! Circuses!
