Breakdown for G20 spending released


The details have been released as to where that $1 billion dollars went during the G8 and G20 summits.

The list of expenses shows that a cool $334,000 was spent on sunscreen, bug spray and hand sanitizer (better safe than sorry, right?), $31,390 was spent on flag polls and $282,412.43 on a "geomatics requirement."

The tab for the notorious security fence in downtown Toronto totaled $4.4 million, with an additional several million spent on hotel accommodations for imported police officers. The most cryptic-sounding on the list? "Mass Casualty Kits," which cost $22,585.77. Yep, not your average grocery bill.
