Quatchi in the News!

Today the Globe and Mail and other Canadian media outlets are running this story about tax dollars paying for the mascots’ pre-Olympics tour…

The federal government spent $16,000 to buy its own set of Quatchi, Miga and Sumi costumes to dazzle crowds at more than 23 events over the year leading up to the Games… The government also spent $4,650 to train actors to play the carefully crafted characters that were a major success of the Olympic marketing machine… The total budget for outfits, training and travel was $88,849.

The article doesn’t say whether Quatchi flew in first class or coach.
