ATIP docs for Trudeau’s St. Kitts trip reveal undisclosed costs for “Tour Manager”

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

The Prime Minister’s Office has insisted that the Trudeau family paid for its Caribbean Christmas vacation in St. Kitts out of pocket, but they’ve understated some of the peripheral costs associated with the trip.

Not only were taxpayers on the hook for the costs of bringing the government-funded nanny—even though she didn’t appear on one version of the flight manifest—but also thousands of dollars for Trudeau’s tour manager to tag along, even though it wasn’t an official trip of any kind.

Ken Brooman, who is listed as the Tour Manager for the Prime Minister’s Visits in a Government of Canada directory—reporting to the Privy Council Office—logged $6,702.60 in expenses for the trip—ranging from vehicle rental to accommodations to over $2,200 in meals.

Credit card statements show hundreds of dollars in cash advances, as well as hotels as steep as $350 USD per night (though Brooman said in a note that the RCMP was involved in the booking of some accommodations.)

There are some costs that are unavoidable—such as security and transportation costs—but additional staffing and unnecessary resources should be pored over with great scrutiny.

If anyone is going to find out what works and what doesn’t, however, it will be Trudeau—he’s certainly taken enough vacations.

Keep those entitlements for the entitled who are entitled to them coming. Liberal white privilege anyone?

I guess Baby Doc and Princess Hasnobrains have to economise and save his trust fund money for when they get older.

I wonder what the MSM will do if he orders a $16 glass of juice and bills the taxpayers.
