The Liberals have returned to the trough! Is anyone really surprised? I have to admit, I am a bit surprised. (Only at the speed of the return!)
After nearly 10 years out of power, they sure are hungry for some all you can eat taxpayer dollars!
- Nearly 400 delegates at the UN Climate Conference. "Canada has sent more people to Paris than Australia (46), the U.K. (96), the U.S. (148), Russia (313) and almost as many as host-country France (396)." That is quite the carbon foot print!
- His entire family (and their nannies of course) for a week long European vacati^@&#& jaunt! Since the "first family" has no role in Canadian government, who pays for their airfare, meals, etc? The inclusion of them on the trip is purely for Canadian political consumption. The taxpayers shouldn't foot the bill.
- Speaking of the nannies, he hires his two former nannies. The issue isn't that he has nannies, its that he has the gal to bill taxpayers for them after his attacks on the NDP and Conservatives during the election. In addition those attacks, these are the very same nannies he had when he was the leader of the third place party. I can only assume he paid for them out of his own pocket then, so why bill them now?
There is also scuttlebutt that the public sector can start hiring, and the taps are flowing in government to spend whatever they want, and this is all before their first official budget. Hold on to your wallets Canadians!
