According to new documents obtained by the Canadian Taxpayers Federations, Global Affairs Canada spent $24,638 on 86 leather cushions for its embassy in Mexico City.
That equals out to $286 per cushion.
The cushions where Canadian-made and where purchased in the fall of 2016 from a Regina-based company before being sent to Mexico City.
“It is a shocking figure for seat cushions,” said CTF president Aaron Wudrick.
