CONFIRMED: Millions wasted on “mosque built for no one” and other “refugee” renos at Canadian Forces bases

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

If you’re a regular viewer, you’ll know how difficult it’s been for us to get detailed dollar figures for Trudeau’s “refugee rush” but fortunately, the government was forced to respond to an order paper question in Parliament and I now have at least some information I’m going to share with you. 

I’m going to provide details so you can share with other Canadians who won’t be happy about spending this kind of money for what amounts to a vanity project for Trudeau.

In total 380 soldiers were moved from their barracks to make way for the refugees, 370 were moved at CFB Kingston and 10 at CFB Valcartier outside of Quebec City.

Even though Liberals reduced the initial plan from six bases to just two, all of them underwent renovations for winterizing accommodations, improving shower and washroom facilities and in some spots kitchen facilities and yes, even erecting that “worship centre” as they called it at CFB Meaford.

At CFB Kingston they spent $400,000 on a new ventilation system for the junior ranks kitchen, presumably where they would have fed the people if they had come.

At CFB Valcartier they spent $2.8M and winterized 10 buildings, along with the construction of 31 small units plus some electrical work.

At CFB Borden they also spent more than $2M, and here we get a detailed list:

• 236 Weatherhaven shelter concrete floors have been insulated with subfloor (chipboard} and overlaid with rubber matting;
• Hard stand washroom facilities required a heat upgrade to the laundry areas;
• Construction fencing was rented and/or purchased and installed for safety concerns (to cordon off the boilers, propane tanks and mechanical equipment);
• Heat exchangers inside the Weatherhaven shelters were upgraded with a safety guard device to prevent incident and injury;
• Security cameras were purchased and installed in key locations looking outward to enhance base security at the request of the Military. Police;
• Snow, ice and garbage service contracts were amended to absorb additional usage;
• Re-skinning of Weatherhaven shelters that were deficient was accomplished;
• Water closet and shower stalls were modified for Barrier access free in select hardstand ablutions; and . .
• A trailer was rented and positioned at the main gate to serve as the screening and entry control point into the interim Lodging Sites

That’s a lot of work done but at least it will benefit our soldiers going forward.

At CFRB Trenton there was $275,000 spent on a lot of small upgrades.

Here’s some info on CFB Meaford’s Mosque:

“The installation of a 120' X 60' shelter for a social, recreational, cultural and worship site.”

Looking at the long list of upgrades I’m of two minds thinking I’m glad for the military that they got upgrades they’ve wanted even if the house guests didn’t come. But on the other hand I think it’s just another example of Trudeau and company wasting money to make themselves look good.

Despite being told we needed to rush all these people over here quickly because they were living in horrible conditions in refugee camps, we found out most of them were not living in camps and were in houses and apartments in places like Beirut.

There was no need to rush but rush we did. Spending millions to get army bases ready, kicking soldiers out, building a mosque for people that didn’t need the bases. They didn’t need the bases because McCallum and company put them in hotels at huge cost to taxpayers.

We still don’t know hotel costs but we do know the government’s own contracts state they are paying the hotels $61/day to feed each and every refugee.

It’s a waste, the people we brought over were safe. Waiting a few more months until we could house them properly could have saved us this cost and saved the military $6M.

Instead we rushed for the Trudeau vanity project.

And still we have cities asking for a slow down in settling refugees, McCallum admitting that 30% of the refugees we brought over still don’t have a place to live, meaning they are in those hotels.

I’ve said from the beginning the refugee rush was going to be handled poorly. These new documents showing millions spent by the army for a project that didn’t happen is just the latest proof.

History records them as “Nazis”!

Bill Elder.
If you recall, these shelters were for summer training camps only. That’s why Harper, or anyone else before him never winterized them.

And the Liberals were on the radio yesterday bragging about how well they’ve done fixing the bloody mess (my words, not theirs, as we are still in sunny ways) they are responsible for.

It really is ironic.

But BRIAN, aren’t there more coming?

Gee, Brian, don’t you know that these improvements to the military bases was a brilliant Liberal budgeting maneuver. By having the taxpayers pay for these improvements, in the name of compassion, they saved 6 million dollars in the upcoming defence budget!

Hyacinth – one small correction, the liberals are setting the table for the UN’s “global socialism!”

“some liberals friends got nice construction contracts , that’s all there is to it. same old liberals ways.”

You are mistaken, whilst some of their old ways remain they definitely are not the old Liberal Party from the centrist days of Lester B. Pearson. Pierre Trudeau shifted the Party left, Justin has finalized the last of the changes. Look closely at the party, its policies, its promises, its mannerisms, its tactics, what we have witnessed so far since the election. There is absolutely nothing remaining of the centrist Liberals of old. They really should change the party’s name to be more representative of what it has morphed into – National Socialism.

An indirect benefit to the armed forces, but a benefit nonetheless. This must really bother Liberals.

You can add on the cost of relocating the military members and paying for their relocated housing while these barracks sit empty. I wonder if they will ever bring the military personal back now that the upgraded renovations are done and the muslim migrants aren’t going to be using them. Probably too good for our military now. Wouldn’t want anyone thinking that we are pampering our military. Have to save that for the economic migrants/ refugees.
commented 2016-03-18 01:18:35 -0400
The left was falsely whining that Harper was mean to our vets, meanwhile Justin treats them like dirt and values terrorists over them and not a damn peep form the progressives.
Justin can go to hell. I hope if he ever needs forces members they stop at timmies for a while before they get around to helping him.

Jay Kelly , what is wrong with them using the same one? It was a special place for the Muslims and you know it.

One item, "the installation of a 120’ X 60’ shelter for a social, recreational, cultural and worship site,” seems to have caught a lot of attention. It sounds like multi-use space to me — something that is not uncommon on a base. Do people think that no halls on bases should ever be used for prayers? The Canadian military has a long tradition of trying to accommodate religious needs.

Yvette Mozol commented- "McCallum was in WPG today pushing his agenda & bragging about how well this is all going with 72% housed! but needing furniture. I call it madness. "

The “madness” Yvette, is this is not being held up fr public scrutiny by the media -they give this “madness” a pass because of partisan bias. – THAT is madness.

Actually I prefer the gazebos of former better days.

If all this spending,much of it needless like the mosque doesn’t make you angry, them you must be a liberal. No problem finding the money for these upgrades but no problem insulting seniors with your 60cents raise.The only good thing is that the troops will benefit from this when they finally are allowed back in. This is so shameful & makes me so angry. The fake refugees living in apts, houses, living a.
normal life are pushed to the front of the line while our troops, homeless, seniors are relegated to the back. I ’m all for helping people with a real need but in this case, the Libs acted like a bunch of imbeciles with no plan or organization. The $100M Trudeau kept repeating in every speech for the cost of all this was such a lie & he knew it. McCallum was in WPG today pushing his agenda & bragging about how well this is all going with 72% housed! but needing furniture. I call it madness.

James Barnes commented – "If Harper was in, we would never have had this problem. Shitty argument there dude. "

I’m not arguing – I’m stating facts – if these forces facilities need upgrades why didn’t Harper do it??? I you want to get down and dirty why did he screw vets on benefits and their widows? _ coupla lousy bucks for that would have cost nothing.

There are NO heroes in politics my friend, if you get caught up in the partisanism, you lose your perspective/objectivity.

Karan, good point, also every time a mosque is built means that the Mohammedans have claim to that site.
The same reason that these pigs wanted to erect a mosque at ground zero. Every time a mosque is erected we lose a piece of our sovereignty.

Here’s some info on CFB Meaford’s Mosque: “The installation of a 120’ X 60’ shelter for a social, recreational, cultural and worship site.”

I think this is the scariest issue. According to quran; once a mosque is always a mosque it can not be used for any other purpose. I am sure the mohammedans would be allowed by imam turdo & imam sajjan to use this place as a mosque.

What a fricken gong show

+Bill Elder – If Harper was in, we would never have had this problem. Shitty argument there dude.
commented 2016-03-17 20:23:18 -0400
Heh heh, love the irony of the forces-hating Libranos inadvertently upgrading forces living quarters – you gotta wonder why these well established bases didn’t have “winterized” housing – maybe Harper can answer that one too.
commented 2016-03-17 20:11:34 -0400
What’s scary to me is that now they have the facilities what’s to stop them from bringing in more of them? All of Europe is refusing them. John McCallum needs to stay in a drunken stupor so he doesn’t do anymore damage to this country.
commented 2016-03-17 19:59:57 -0400
The reason Trudeau imported these Muslims is to flood this Country with useless idle inbred parasites, that will breed like rabbits. His and the UNs aim is to have a population dominant with people of the Islamic Faith,. We paid for this and will keep on paying for the foreseeable future.

We are witnessing Hijrah, Jihad by Immigration, it has nothing to do with Refugees. We are being invaded, they are just putting the Soldiers in place before the war starts.

At least the Military had improvements made to their Bases, which is something Trusted would have ever considered, except for his Muslim Brothers.

Trusted is nothing but a low life traitor to his Country. Rot in hell Trusted. Soon.
