August 10, 2016 - Brian Lilley provides more details to add perspective to the extent of Justin Trudeau's super-elite spending.
August 9, 2016 - Brian Lilley exposes another misuse of plane funds, this time Trudeau sent two empty planes to Quebec City to pick him and his family up.
Justin Trudeau is flying high on your dime.
Justin Trudeau has spent more than $100,000 in one month alone shuttling himself, his family, and his friends around the country on government jets.
Among the friends, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and her chief of staff Brian Topp, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, and Trudeau's controversial nannies.
The Alberta NDP:
When Trudeau was out in Edmonton at the beginning of February, Trudeau provided a lift from Edmonton to Calgary for Notley and Topp.
Then, on February 10, 2016 the Challenger flew empty from Ottawa to Montreal in order to pick up Prime Minister Trudeau and his entourage.
That flight is listed as having took an hour. To drive the route would have taken no more than two hours.
Of course there's no record of a flight to Montreal, meaning Trudeau drove to Montreal initially.
But to save an hour, Trudeau and company dipped into the public's pocket and flew from Montreal to Ottawa.
Similarly, there are flights for Trudeau's family vacations to Quebec City where the Challenger and crew waited around for three days while the Trudeau’s took in a carnival.
Then there was a flight to Whistler, another flight to Vancouver to do some snowboarding, and a quick sojourn for Trudeau to get some business done in Calgary.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon:
Trudeau used public money to send his private jet to New York City to pick up and drop off UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
It’s not bad enough that we pay millions to the UN each year, that the organization is corrupt, but Canadians are also funding a private jet service for the Secretary General.
Trudeau brought Ban to Montreal as well – then flew the plane home, empty again.
Trudeau’s one month tally for February was close to double the monthly rate for Stephen Harper from 2011 to 2014. Isn’t it time that Trudeau was told to calm down, slow down, and stop flying high on the public dime?

Justin Trudeau should rein in his reckless spending and cut his jet expenditures budget in half.
