my friends at the Canadian Taxpayers federation put out their list of Teddy's. The lifetime teddy could not go to a more deserving fellow separatist gilles duceppe. Congratulations gilles. OTTAWA — Former Bloc Québécois leader Gilles Duceppe received lifetime achievement accolades in the 14th annual Teddy Waste Award ceremony, put on by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation Wednesday to highlight what it deems to be wasteful government spending. Mr. Duceppe lost his seat in last May’s federal election, but the federation said his career in federal politics — performed while dedicated to the cause of Quebec sovereignty — has cost taxpayers a total of $41.8-million.
