“Climate Barbie” Catherine McKenna goes on luxury car buying spree

Faith GoldyRebel Host
 

Canada’s Minister of Environment Catherine McKenna is often caught on camera striking one of her typical Climate Change Barbie poses. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s token female cabinet minister who, when she’s not mounting a bike in high heels, is typically caught on camera attending fancy international summits where she and her like-minded climate cultists plot ways to drain our pocketbooks through, say, a country-wide carbon tax on literally everything.

To be sure, Climate Barbie’s eco-friendly image is a national priority. That’s why she absolutely had to spend over $17,000 taxpayer dollars to hire fancy French photographers to take candid shots:

Photos on bikes, photos at climate conferences-- that’s the sort of look every Climate Change Barbie wannabe should aspire to.

But, what about photos of our Environment Minister in, say, a gas guzzling Porsche? Or, a Mercedes Benz?

The federal Conservatives just received an answer to their Order Paper which asked government departments to detail how many vehicles they’ve purchased, broken down by brand name.

And it turns our, Catherine McKenna is not enforcing a bikes are better transport plan when it comes to her own ministry—far from.

Behind the scenes, Minister McKenna has been signing off on Porches, Mercedes Benz, and Lexus cars for her department’s use. McKenna signed off on not one but two luxury Porsche vehicles.

But don’t worry, they were used cars — so the one only cost us $67,000 dollars and the other was a mere $63,000.

And the Lexus McKenna signed off came in just shy of $67,000 as well.

But take a look at some of the other vehicles Climate Change Barbie brought in to her department thanks to the public purse:

A Mercedes Benz for $92,000 and, finally, the crown jewel in the Ministry of the Environment’s garage (courtesy of you and me, the taxpayer):

A brand spanking new Tesla for a cool $112,000.

And McKenna’s not the only one signing off on luxury vehicles for her staff. Several other Liberal parliamentarians are doing the exact same thing.

Where does Canada’s Liberal Party get off plundering from the public purse to buy themselves fancy cars on our dime?

Here's a tip for Canada's Environment Minister:

The next time you think of getting a Porsche or a Tesla, why don’t you take your own advice and ride a bike instead?

There is an excellent docudrama on NETFLIX called “Roman Empire reign of blood” about the succession of Marcus Aurelius…watch it and see if Commodus reminds you of anybody.

I sometimes think that I should like
To be the saddle on a bike.
At other times I could but mope
That I am not a bar of soap.

I have a hard time wrapping my head around this..!!
Her price for harming a nation with 35 million people, all suffering from the policies that she endorses but doesn’t have to live by is a couple of fancy cars and a pension… And maybe a couple minutes of media time..!! Wow…!!!!!
I now understand the passage in the Bible that states “what profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul in the process”.
They sure got her cheap..!!!

We definitely need a billboard. It should be parked outside the new CBC building in Toronto for a while. If we then don’t make the CBC news we can shame them for refusing to cover the cold hard truth, as well as shaming the liberal government for their decadence.

These folks aren’t Conservative or Liberal. They are the political class…..that body of elites that say anything to get elected then raid the Treasury for all they can take. It’s no wonder they are reviled by the taxpayers. The country is going down the tubes and it is doubtful another gang in charge will be any different.

Her? Climate Barbie?
Shit, I thought that was Juthtin’th name!

Just a way for the Canadian Liberal Party to say fuck you! To the tax payer.
There actions speak louder than their words.

I don’t think we should pay any more tax dollars to these Communist; politically correct traitors!

Time to throw them out of office.

Are any of these vehicles powered by Electricity, I doubt it but let us hope that they have electric chairs in them. You know, just like the ones they used to use in Prisons.

Remind me again… Did she or did she not make the cheerleading squad in high school?… Or was she even too dumb for that at the time?…

I would donate to a billboard to put up in their Home ridings.. Or anywhere in fact where people would think it would do the most good..
I mean hell yeah… They should be held accountable to the people their most popular with..

Oh, come on Faith, you know very well that Baby Doc Trudeau and his cronies are entitled to their entitlements.

At least they are spending the money our government borrowed for economic stimulus on foreign manufactured cars and SUVs sold in Canada. Its not as though they weren’t supporting Canadian dealerships of German manufacturers.

Surely, at taxpayer’s expense, they could have bought an Ontario built Impala or GMC Terrian. Then again, they are entitled to their entitlements.

I wonder if we sprung for them to have Porsche, BMW or Mercedes branded leather racing gloves to go along with their Porsche, BMW or Mercedes playthings.

Marc Garneau, we had better expectations of him. Guess you can fool a lot of the people a lot of the time.

Hey where is moderate? he claims to not be a liberal yet he only craps on conservatives. I guess he is just full of sh*t

More of the same from the Liberals trying to catch up to the same bs that Gore was able to pull over the people of the USA and now it is coming back on him. The Liberals are acting like communists, this is what you are going to do and if you are not going to obey we will force you and Barbie did state that on question period.

What’s wrong with Ford or Chevy, oh no, that wouldn’t do for barbie’s sorry ass & she’s always got that smile on her face like Nutley.
I will be happy to donate for a billboard like someone else proposed. To those who were dumb enough to vote them in I hope you’re happy with yourselves. What a slap in the face to all hard working Canadians. Some seniors can’t even afford their medication & these people who make fantastic salaries & retire like royalty are whooping it up on their dime. This is almost criminal in my view.

Prius for thee, Benz for me.

All this damn liberal gov’t is doing is laughing at us & we’re supposed to take that sitting down? I know a few millionaires & yes they drive luxury cars but not porchas. This is getting more crazy by the minute. They’re not happy that the taxpayer pays for their cars & everything else but they need to drive top of the line vehicles. Trudeau is driving us over the cliff in record time. Mckenna, the barbie thinks she’s some kind of celebrity, I’m more than disgusted right now, I’m damn angry at those climate change fools who are nothing but hypocrites, there’s not one decent respectable person in that stupid ignorant cabinet of Trudeau’s & I blame him the most for this arrogant behaviour. They should all be tarred & feathered & run out of Ottawa to TimBuckTwo., never to be seen again. Where is the petition on this & the opposition?

“The crooked lying entitled liberals are back”

It is much worse this time around considering the cost of everything across the board has increased substantially since their last reign of terror federally.

Billy Howard , don’t forget there is a lot of the brain washed ndp’ers who also voted for turdo and his slimy liberals , they are just as crazy and voted for moron turdo rather than Harper who looked after Canada and Canadians and had a clue about how to be a leader .

At least they bought Canadian made autos right?

Rick Plesnik said: certainly less than 39% of the population are stupid enough to have put them in power
Do the math and you’ll find it was only 27% of eligible voters, that’s only 19% of the actual population who voted for the Libranos.
Makes me feel a little better knowing less than 1 in 5 Canadians are brain-dead suckers.

Remember someone saying you make it and they will take it.Should have listened.This bad dream just keeps rolling along.But don’t worry the budget will balance itself.This is why Trump won.

Liebranos once again displaying the contempt they have for taxpayers as they pursue their thieving ways. As to the question….posed……certainly less than 39% of the population are stupid enough to have put them in power!

Are we ticked off yet? What a flippin insult. Does anyone doubt they are elitists and the rest of us work for them?
