These videos are awful and embarrassing.
But did you know McKenna — or her ministry — makes a bunch more videos that we never get to see because they are meant just for her staff?
These poor people have had to sit through nearly 50 videos produced since McKenna came into office.
The proof of these private and mysterious videos comes from an order paper question by Conservative MP Robert Kitchen from Saskatchewan.
He asked the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change:
"with regard to videos produced by the government for internal usage since November 4, 2015 what are the details of all such videos, including date, duration, title, purpose, the intended audience and the cost."
Turns out that the Ministry has produced 49 videos meant for internal consumption only.
Ones like "To Help Staff Become Familiar With Their Colleagues" — because as you know you can't make friends and acquaintances at work without the government acting as the matchmaker.
This one might be my favorite:
McKenna's ministry produced a video in English and in French to find more people to help them produce more videos.
The ministry says that these videos cost absolutely nothing to produce, but how can that be?
Man-hours cost something, especially when they are government man-hours.
And there are hundreds and hundreds of man-hours spent on this vanity project of turning Catherine McKenna into a donut munching coffee chugging, good club swinging starlet.
