And the Oscar goes too...

Earlier, we exclusively reported the provincial government spent more than $500,000 on ceremonies celebrating civil service excellence. So what do British Columbians think about those parties? Well, Public Eye took our camera down to Victoria's public library to find out.

I don't think it's wrong to recognize, praise and reward employees of any organization for a job well done.

But you don't have to spend half a million of our tax dollars to say: "You're doing a heckuva job, Brownie!"

I think it's time the fiscal conservative in Gordon Campbell was unleashed.

The last gentleman is correct - private companies do this sort of thing all the time. The major difference is they don't use public money to do it.

and they don't spend that much!!! nor do they single out such a small percentage for recognition.

Then again, maybe they want to tell the public with this that only a handful of civil servants are worth recognition for their efforts - hah! this could all be a cunning part of the workforce reduction plans! Naw, they're not that smart.
