The 2010 Winter Olympics security budget will cost $900 million. At least.
The controversial budget was finally released Feb. 19. Goodbye, $175 million myth. You lasted more than five years. Quite a run.
So what can $900 million buy?
16,077,170 of The Club steering wheel immobilizers (@ $55.98 each including taxes from Canadian Tire);
13,396,844 DC Talking Smoke/Carbon Monoxide detectors (@ $67.18 each including taxes from Canadian Tire);
5,022,882 Astak Wireless Night Vision Infrared security cameras (@ $179.18 each including taxes from Future Shop).
