Check cost before buying

What happened to due diligence? How could Surrey council ratify the new RCMP contract without at least one councillor asking about the cost? I know they’re all of one party and used to voting in lockstep, but surely one of them could have asked  a question.

I also know council will dislocate a few fingers pointing at Victoria and suggesting the Campbell/Clark government didn’t tell them and Victoria will then blame Ottawa.

But before buying a product or service surely it’s prudent to find out the cost.
