Can Canadians afford “high maintenance” First Family? ATIP documents reveal “odd” requests

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

Taxpayers are footing the bill for a $10 million renovation to 24 Sussex Dr., which is typically the official residence of Canada’s prime minister. While the renovations are underway, the prime minister’s family is living at Rideau Cottage, but also has access to a vacation cottage in Quebec, Harrington Lake.

Documents obtained exclusively by the Rebel show that Canada’s first family has had some odd requests at that property.

Emails between National Capital Commission staff and the Prime Minister’s Office show that “Mrs”—referring to Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau”—doesn’t like the taste of the water, even though continuous testing done by the NCC shows that there is nothing wrong with it, and even a PMO representative said it’s completely potable.

In the meantime, the Trudeaus are getting drinking water supplied only in glass bottles, instead of drinking from the tap like the rest of Canadians do.

The basement of Harrington Lake is also being renovated, with a newly-purchased ping-pong table and hockey game requiring new lighting. The Prime Minister’s Office stipulated that only incandescent lighting will be used—the NCC actually had to replace existing fluorescent lighting to make the space more appealing.

I suppose it could be worse – the water could be delivered in solid gold jugs that they would later sell on eBay…………….

You folks should be aware of the federal and municipal police officers going to the private residences of citizens of canada who have written negative comments concerning the present Prime Minister of canada in blogs and posts.
Citizens are being interrogated by the police. That’s right questioned as to their motivation in writing about a blithering idiot who couldn’t count above ten with out removing his socks. A bi sexual pinko who has more concern for a bunch of sheep farmers from Syria infiltrating our country at the taxpayers expense than our own people who can barely exist in today’s economy. A Prime Minister who gives away billions of our hard earned dollars to the unwashed of the world
as he laughs his ass off at the hard working people of this country all the while spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on his own personal pleasures and perks.
Prime Minister Trudeau is not to be trusted by the majority of the people He has never attained anything in his life that required hard work and concentration.A life built on theatre and drama unlike the people who have had to work for every dime they ever had.
In short, any opposition to Trudeau will be stopped by the police states of Canada. Or so they think. The people are so upset with this moron with his hands on the public purse I am certain his days will be short in office. no one in their right mind could ever
support this pinko.
Be afraid people ~ Be very very afraid when the police are interrogating the folks who oppose this moron. What is next ? Internment camps for the opposition to this jerk?

Maura O’Donoghue: You are right, corruption knows no political stripe. The distinction comes when you look at the degrees of graft and corruption. The pc’s are in the beer leagues and the liberals are in the NHL baby! Lets see when our transgender butterfly gets his legal weed clearance . All growing, marketing, selling etc. will mostly fall into liberal cronies hands. This will all be set up ahead of time. Gun registry, Adscam, and their own senate thieves. They are the best.Junior learned from Papa Doc Trudy. They are thieves. LIBS are the best thieves.

Why don’t you post how much the pc’s wasted ? Every politician is a schister … post all the bs please , from all parties ….

DEBORAH GRAUPNER, don’t stop – it’s called free speech. The Rebel advocates free speech, however in my case it was not allowed, and it really put a bad taste in my mouth.
Sophie Trudeau is a pig and selfie hound like her arrogant empty headed husband, and more people should be aware of who and what we have leading this once beautiful Canada that is being dragged through the filth and mud by these two. We are the laughing stock of the world – Canada is not back, Canada is now backwards.
So I’m just saying be a little careful.
I sure hope Mr. Trump wins in the US and smashes Justie in the face.

@ Caughell. . . “But let the present Prime Minister spend one penny more than expected” ? ? ?
Dropped 3 Billion in Paris, another Billion going to Bombardier and of course 600 Million to the useless CBC. Nothin to worry about eh Robbie . . . 30 Billion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see . . . and I almost forgot . . . what are the 100 thousand Syrian invaders going to cost? Another 1/2 Billion. And of course who can forget the Trust Funder 1%er Pandering to the UN Despots . . . his favorite kind of folks! Seems he wants on the UN Human Rights Council with his friends the Saudis and Iranians.
Justin and YOU obviously think the Budget will Balance Itself . . . lol

Would someone please enlighten me about Sophie’s special cocktails? Never heard about this. Thanks.

The boy blunder promised a 10 billion dollar deficit in his first year .It is estimated that he will actually run a deficit of over 30 billion dollars, having been handed a surplus by Harper. Gee, I don’t even know how many pennies more than expected that is.
commented 2016-05-06 16:43:04 -0400
Dump the monarchy both foreign and domestic.
commented 2016-05-06 16:41:36 -0400
Interesting how there was little to no criticism from the right when Harper took many trips on our Canadian government jets and took family/friends along. Then you had Peter McKay use a military plane/helicopter to take him on a “fishing trip”. Again little/no response from the right. But let the present Prime Minister spend one penny more than expected, the right wing press goes bananas. You have to love the subjective, biased reporting and hypocrisy driven ideology of some so called “journalist/repoters”.

I can see the commercial now…..Junior striding along below Parliament, the sleeves of his his white shirt rolled up. his red tie askew, his eyes gleaming….
I’ll tell you what I’m ready for, says he:
I’m ready to go to Davos on your dime and party with every international celebrity I can find like there is no tomorrow;
I’m ready to lead a massive delegation to the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, even though the science behind the theory of made made global warming has been disproved and no enforceable agreement will come out of it;
I’m ready to take regular family holdays to luxury resorts;
I’m ready to take a small army to party with my bro Barak in Washington;
I’m ready to hold cabinet meetings in far off luxury resorts every chance I get;
I’m ready to fund every bone headed idea the UN comes up with;
I’m ready to have two nannies,
I’m ready for taxpayers to spend 10 million to fix up my palace;
I’m ready not to have to drink tap water anymore;
I’m ready to travel at a moments notice anywhere nice in the world for a photo-op;
I’m ready to be a typical Liberal;
….this is exausting, you guys get the idea

I now know what Junior is really “ready” for. Spending other peoples money!
commented 2016-05-06 06:55:50 -0400
NEWS FLASH! The Globe and Mail web site has reported that “a small army” of 44 people accompanied Junior on his bromance trip to Washington. It is even listed as a top story. It cites the cost of the trip and the wages and benefits of Junior’s nannies.
Never saw this one coming. Better late than never.

With the global economy collapsing, Bernie Trudeau is going to have his hands full – and because Bernie Trudeau is so fucking stupid, it will be every man for themselves.

Bernie Trudeau is analogous to those child monarchies that Europe had a few hundreds years ago – Spain and Sweden were two such examples.

And that Sophie thing – she’s just a gross pig. Spend away bitch – you’ll be remembered as that foul pig who lucked her way to notoriety by marrying a closet homosexual.

Lloyd Nolan, Deborah Graupner and Keith Barnes – careful with the comments about Sophie’s special cocktails. Several months ago I was warned in an email by Eitan Gilboord of the Rebel that I would be banned from commenting because I insinuated or alluded to Sophie’s sick cocktails.
It’s one of the reasons I choose to stop or at least slow down on commenting on the Rebel – Eitan’s self imposed ban on free speech.
I wrote an email to Ezra and explained my go around with Eitan – however I have never received a reply. I’m guessing that Ezra never got it because Eitan censored it.
Anyway, be careful. My go around with the guy was not pleasant, although I had my say and got in my licks, it left a very bad taste in my mouth.
Apparently everything goes through this guy, and he does not make good decisions.

I’m guessing he thinks he’s going to be there for two terms… we can’t let that happen.

Now we know for sure – Turdeau and family must be Muslims. Only Muslims are that picky, ungrateful and demanding, and nothing is ever good enough for them – as long as it’s bought with someone else’s money.

Our “First Lady” can’t understand why Perrier doesn’t pour from her taps. if she spent 1% of her time on drinking water in aboriginal communities, the problem there would be solved. Also your highness, incandescent bulbs are illegal in Canada- not that you give a royal shit.

She seemed perfectly alright with drinking menstrual blood, but the water isn’t good enough for the princess?
