The federal government and associated bodies spent roughly $118,000 on tickets to events, galas and concerts in six months last year.

That included nearly $10,000 on tickets to bring 35 foreign investors to see Cirque du Soleil in Toronto and for the Canadian ambassador to Serbia to bring guests to see Bryan Adams in concert there in November.

Those breakdowns were provided last month by the government in response to an order paper question submitted in December 2019 by the Conservatives.
