So with Meghan out of town for a month it was time to start something new... so I went running with Kev this morning as we start a marathon training program. Kev went through this last year, so he's got lots of helpful hints. I've been out a few times this year running 5K or so each time (I think the highest I've done in the last year was 7K) and today's was no different.

This article states that Mr. Dingwall claims that he wasn't spending taxpayers dollars when expensing things. He claims that since he was able to put the Mint back in the black that he was spending from it's operating cashflow and that since it is a crown corporation that it isn't taxpayers money. Woah... hold up... Isn't a crown corporation one that is wholly-owned by the government? And therefore aren't all us plebes essentially shareholders in ones such as the Mint? Well - Mr. Dingwall, congratulations on getting the Mint back on solid footing, but I'm personally, as a shareholder, infuriated at the reported level of your expenses.
