The $53 million document

Related imageThe final report from the five-year long public inquiry into child abuse allegations in Cornwall, Ontario has finally been released.

The price tag for this document? A staggering $53 million.

The report itself is 2,400 pages. That’s just over $22,000 per page.

Assuming 500 words per page, the cost is about $44 per word.

We need to have a public inquiry into the cost of all these public inquiries. I offer my services in developing the final report.

And I’ll only charge $43 per word.
