Lots of questions

Is it being paid from existing budgets?
Was it from approved additional budgets?
Are savings being used to pay for it? And how will Canadians know?
Can the cost be recovered over # of years?
Are there cost benefits to be calculated to off-set these costs?
Is this a deliberately negative half story?
Why was the decision made in the first place?

No, I don't see it as deliberately negative or half stor. The cbc is an extremely reliable neutral news source, our version of the bbc. We get these kinds of stories around events like elections, holidays, state visits. It is simply a report of what was spent, neither made to be negative or positive. The reality is many Canadiens question the Vietnam if such visits as we pick up the tab. The Cbc is simply filling in blanks.

We get this every royal visit. Governments budget for it. The Queen's 2010 visit cost $2.79 million

Cost of Prince Charles and Camilla's royal visit pegged at $721,000 | Canada | N

I mentioned half story because I couldn't find cost benefits.

There will be some and generally media aren't interested 12-18 months after visit when they can be measured.

So people tend to remember the cost only
