And the other difference being that the recipients are accountable for the money and how it is spent.

I have no problem for a budget for councillors to promote Council, the City, and its government. That seems quite kosher to me and the City certainly needs PR, and people need to be encouraged to engage with their councillors. Even by distributing fridge magnets, sure.

But $3 million for that seems excessive to me; let's talk about what that dollar amount realistically needs to be, let's talk about the degree to which it should be at the discretion of individual councillors and let's make them account for the expenses.
