Canada's Natural Resources Minister spends big money on “fake” Facebook “likes”

An order paper question from Conservative MP Harold Albrecht has revealed Minister of Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr’s extreme level of vanity and the cost of his ego.

Albrecht’s question asked:

With regard to the purchase of likes on Facebook by government departments, agencies, Crown corporations or other government entities since January 1st 2016,

A) what are the details of all such purchases including amount, date, number of likes purchased, title of page or post which received the likes; and

B) what is the total expenditures for these likes.

Across all departments, no taxpayer dollars were spent on the purchase of Facebook likes, with the exclusion of Natural Resources Canada, which showed two separate purchases.

The first was from October 23rd to November 6th 2017, when they spent $3,500 to buy 2,668 Facebook likes for a post about Energy Star Canada on their English language page. At the same time, for the same post on their French language page, they  spent $1,500 to buy another 943 likes.

That's a total of $5,000 Canadian taxpayer dollars to buy 3,611 Facebook likes.

For those keeping track at home, that's $1.38 for each and every fake Facebook like, and is an indication of how completely shallow, gross and misdirected the Liberals are.

They spend $5,000 to make themselves seem popular and liked on Facebook, and spend money on glamour projects like Bollywood vacations, while Canadian veterans get accused of asking for too much back at home.

Jim Carr can't get anything done, he can't get a pipeline built and he’s failing Alberta and all of Canada. He's awful at his job.

But he knows what the most important thing is, and it's not even really being liked or being popular. Instead, it's having others think that you're liked and popular.

And Jim Carr is willing to spend your money to help him live in his illusion of being good at his job.

FLAT EARTH. .FLAT WATER “If this and actions like this doesn’t point directly to a subversive take over by the government, our present government.. then what will it take to work the people up.??” Here is some food for thought.

What I see about our Prime Minister is that he is using special interest groups to cause division amongst Canadians and he is doing it according to plan. He has even passed special laws for them. He has stifled freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of expression, and freedom of choice. He is censoring words and changing our laws to suit his agenda. He is a globalist/NewWorldOrder/EU/UN lackey with an agenda of world domination by a totalitarian government. Late last year, Justin Trudeau told the New York Times that Canada is becoming a new kind of country, not defined by our history or European national origins, but by a “pan-cultural heritage”. “There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada,” Trudeau said, concluding that he sees Canada as “the first post-national state.” He is trying to change Canada’s form of government to a totalitarian dictatorship headed by his buddies. Something that he has no authority, nor mandate, to do. He is performing a coup from the inside. He is a traitor to the people that elected him and the nation of Canada. A country that was doing just fine until he and his minions came along. If he gets his way the Globalist/NewWorld Order totalitarian, dictatorial government will be our parent and god. Why isn’t anyone pointing this out and challenging him?

Just say it; the UN is out of control. They have overstepped their mandate and are threatening the whole world. They want to take all guns away so that we cannot defend ourselves when they march in and take over. Why do you think that the biggest part of the immigrants are young males of fighting age? They are placing their armies.

He controls the press, the national police, our bank account, and now our children. It is looking more like Nazi Germany than Canada. We will not submit to him and his planned destruction of our culture no matter how many fake likes he and his minions buy.

Drew, if he had a sister, he probably stole them from her underwear drawer! No sister, maybe he raided Mom’s drawer!

I’m guessing Carr was ticked off by the publicity Climate Barbie got by that staged shot of her on her bicycle in high heels?…

In other words, Carr is saying, by golly nobody seems to like me, but these fake likes will make me feel more secure about myself, thank you taxpayers, this is for a good cause, I feel better already.

Jim Carr is an oboe player. Ask any member of any symphony orchestra which member of their orchestra is the most neurotic? Invariably they will point to their oboist.

Tammie….That is what it takes to be a modern day liberal or a supporter, one has to have a screw or two loose.
