(That's a Kids In the Hall reference, by the way)Everyone in the Legislature press gallery went on an online Spirited Energy shopping spree yesterday. That was after Tory MLA Leanne Rowat needled the NDP during Question Period about how exorbitant the shipping fees are if you buy any Spirited Energy swag on the province's website.The charges really are out of whack. A colleague tried to buy an umbrella with the swirly new brand emblazoned on it. Like anyone would buy that, but whatever. A $14.95 umbrella costs more than $25 with all the delivery fees and taxes.I bought a $3 pen and the shipping was about $8. Total: $11.82. For a pen that everyone around here says runs out of ink after a few uses.Basically, everything you order costs $8 to ship, whether it's 100 T-shirts or one little pen.I hope my pen arrives in time for next week's release of the auditor's report into the Spirited Energy rebanding campaign. Gotta take good notes.
