HOW BUSINESS IS DONE IN OTTAWA

The steps at the Parliament Buildings needed some repairs
so bids are taken from contractors from across the country.

First a contractor from Toronto looks it over.
After a session of measuring and figuring he presents his bid.
"I can do it for $19,000, he says. I'd need $9,000 for material,
$9,000 for my crew, and $1,000 profit for me."

Next, a contractor from Calgary does his measuring and calculating then says,
"I 'll do it for $17,000. $8,000 for materials, $8,000 for my crew, and $1,000 profit for me."

Last a Liberal-friendly advertising firm from Montreal steps up.
Without even looking at the job site he says,
"I'll do it for $57,000."

Surprised at how high it is, the man taking the bids asks him to explain it.
It's simple, he says,
"$20,000 for me, $20,000 for you, and we hire the guy from Calgary."


LOL Man how accurate is that?!!
