small talk ain’t cheap (well, kinda)

Complaints have been made once or twice about the cost of having our Queenie visiting her lil ol’ Canada. Apart from her keynote speeches at Canada Days, I wonder what ‘value added’ we Canadians receive from such visits? What about from her ‘small talk’ with all the politicians and random children called upon to curtsey?

Well, according to my sources (today’s episode of DNTO), Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s small talk last November with Queenie’s son led to him spotting Prince Charles $10 for some local sheep’s cheese! Ha! I wonder if that tenner ever got repaid.
