EXCLUSIVE: Suzuki's latest scandal involves $30,000 and female bodyguards

We all know David Suzuki is a saint. Especially now that he's 76, and refers to himself in the third person, as "an elder." Recently, Suzuki told his fellow CBC employee George Stromboulopoulos, " I feel though, at my age, no one can accuse me of wanting more fame or power or money."
That's what he says. But what does he do? Suzuki's visit to a small junior college in Montreal last October paints a different picture.
To give a one-hour talk, Suzuki billed them $30,000 plus expenses. Add in his airline ticket, his $841 hotel bill, a photographer and other costs, and the total hit for his visit was $41,640. From a small, publicly funded school.

What's the point of this?

Is it that David Suzuki is a sleazeball therefore there's nothing wrong with the environment?

Is it that you hate capitalism and so are against David Suzuki charging for his work?

He isn't a thorn in my side.

But that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun at his and his sycophants expense.

and why is that, because suzuki charges a whole shyte load of money to make an appearance AND there are people and organizations willing to pay what he asks? If that's it, I'd say it's more about jealousy on your part.

For someone that doesn't give a sh*t about the guy, you're responsible for 30% of all posts to date in the thread about the guy.

It's because he needs hits for the mother paper.

First of all the top guys making those kinds of speeches charge a lot more than thirty thousand.
Of course he is going to charge for his work, he is going to charge expenses as well. Nothing
wrong with that. Hist statements to media about not needing more money is likely true but that
does not mean you don't charge anymore it means you can pick and chose which of the talks
you might do and charge less that the fifty or one hundred thousand bucks many others charge.

I don't agree with his positions necessarily on the environment but that is no big deal, when it comes
to expenses or speaking engagements its not hypocrisy at all.
