Catherine McKenna traveled to San Francisco in 2017, but her office is holding on to the details so tightly that they're in violation of Information Commission rules.
The Environment Minister took an entourage on a three day trip to San Francisco two years ago, and we've been investigating the junket ever since. But prying information about who McKenna met on the trip and which staffers she took has been difficult.
Earlier in the summer one of our investigations into the taxpayer-funded expenses submitted by Trudeau's buddy Gerald Butts forced the Information Commissioner to send a note to the Privy Council. The Commissioner agreed that the names of staffers billing their trips to the government are not considered personal information and therefore should be disclosed.
Yet McKenna's office refuses to hand over this information. We know that she attended an event with the anti-pipeline Democrat billionaire Tom Steyer while in California. And if McKenna's office will admit to that, what else is she hiding?
