The costs of staging the Bandidos murder trial have been totalled and they are stagering.
The trial which convicted the six accused in the deaths of eight fellow Bandidos cost the taxpyers more than $2,3000,000.
The costs of the 13 lawyers provided by legal aid alone was almost two-million dollars.
And the incarceration of the convicted Bandidos will cost even more. $16,5000,000 to keep them behind bars for the minimum 25 years.
Combined, taxpayers will spend more than $20-million on this case.

But you think that's a waste of taxpayer money... government employees get I think it's 9 fully paid sick days per year plus 127 days at 80% of their pay. They can't be fired for taking those days and they don't need a doctors note for three days or less, they can just give any damned excuse, I especially like the "mental health day" excuse. Plus after taking the 127 days off, they just have to work for 21 days and they can do it all over again. Isn't the Canadian government efficient !!!
