Reporters Have To Pay $78,000 To Ask Harper A Question

Sounds reasonable enough.
Reporters Have To Pay $78,000 To Ask Harper A Question

As you know, Stephen Harper is on the campaign trail and at every event, journalists get to ask him 5 questions.

Except not everyone is allowed to ask a question. 1 of the questions is reserved for someone from the local media provided their question gets approved.

The other 4 are reserved for the journalists who ride on the official campaign bus.

The only problem is that you have to pay to get on the bus. A lot. $78,000 to be exact, for the entire campaign. And that's if you pay the discount rate of $12,500 a week for the entire campaign.

I'm sure Harper is crying himself to sleep about this.
