Oversecuring Underproducers

A billion dollars to host the G8/G20?

Is humanity (or more importantly, Canadians) going to be a $1,000,000,000 better off because these idiots decided to get together? I would postulate that we'd probably be several times that better off if in fact they never did, but that's neither here nor there.

With this meeting I can't help but think about how the villainous group 'The Apostles of the Stars' in the manga Black Cat used their super powers to trash such an event and kill everyone involved. Perhaps the Canadians came to this same conclusion and decided to blow real money to protect themselves from cartoon characters because there's no one attending that meeting who is important enough to warrant that level of coddling and security, especially in order to isolate them from a worldwide public that largely doesn't give a rat's ass about any of these characters.
