Calgary Radio station burns $5,000


When I saw this on the news the other day I couldn't believe my ears. Not only do I think it was a stupid thing to do, I always thought it was illegal to purposely deface currency of any kind!

This radio station asked their listeners if they should bank it or burn it. If more people said bank it they would give it away to one of their listeners, other wise they'd burn it. They say more people wanted them to burn it, witch make's me wonder what the people who are listening to this station where thinking, or should I say not thinking! That money could have helped so many needy people, it makes me sick, and I think they should be put in jail for doing this. But what really kills me is that they say their going to do it again with even more money!

You can read the story at the link I have below, but I'd like to know what you all think of this, is it just me, or does this blow your mind too?

That is totally ridiculous and unfathomable. I feel like listeners must have thought it was a joke, otherwise why on Earth would you vote to burn?! Crazy!!!

Money should have been spent on literally anything else.

they got exactly what they wanted

All the radio station was interested in was publicity, and that's exactly what they're getting. They are probably getting way more bang for their 5,000 bucks thanks to this stunt than if they would have advertised in the usual way.

But yeah, I agree! What a shame :(
