Did Liberals put a “mini Trump Tower” in Sohi’s office? Liberals spent almost half million on furniture alone

Brian LilleyArchive

Canadians were shocked by the amount of taxpayer money the Liberals spent to renovate and furnish the offices of Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi and his Deputy Minister alone, try as they and their media allies might, to defend the spending. 

But don’t let them fool you. To understand how truly shocking it all is, consider that they spent almost half a million dollars on furniture alone for two offices and then wonder at how much more has not yet been revealed.

Consider also as the opposition have asked, how is it possible that even with a smaller caucus and presumably plenty of empty office space available, the Liberals could justify this spending?

Watch my video to see how the Liberals continue to try to defend the indefensible.

Actually, this is par for the new course. NO expense is too far out of reach for the new ruling class. This is the Baby Doc Trudeau’s government. After all, its just other people’s money.

Baby Doc Trudeau originally called for $10 million in upgrades to fix 24 Sussex to Sophie’s – ah, er – his… yes, thats it, his required standards. Now we might be paying up to $100,000,000 for Sophie’s – ah, er… ah… his new digs to be world class. Just wait for the moat and the throne room! Will his toilet be gold? Sophie’s maybe?

Isn’t $100,000,000 what Baby Doc Trudeau promised as matching funds for Fort Mac? So for funds what he believes sufficient to fix a city he can make Sophie’s castle all pretty, uh, I mean make his government paid home acceptable for a head of state. So for $800.000+, its about right to renovate a minister’s office. Isn’t it? No one should be made to work at an old desk

When Papa Doc Trudeau was PM he ordered an indoor swimming pool for 24 Sussex so that he could relax and go swimming whenever he wanted. No need to mix with the simple folk. It was all part of what was owed to him. Now Baby Doc is following in daddy’s spending footsteps.

After four years as PM Baby Doc “Justin” Trudeau will have been paid over $1.2 million, and he still will not have worked for a living.

I would suspect that there isn’t over a half million in office furniture in those two offices, b it that there is furniture in their own homes, o rightly extra money in someone’s pockets. It really seems impossible to spend over $243,000 in furniture for one office. Something is not right here beyond furniture.

Sohi does have a reputation for self-aggrandizement, embellishment, and corruption. Edmonton city council was overjoyed when Sohi found his way into a choice cabinet position. With massive capital spending dollars dancing in their heads, they are hopeful that Sohi hasn’t changed from his usual ways. it’s becoming apparent that there are some pretty weird characters in JT’s government. Along with Sohi, wanna-be TV celebrity Freeland and looney McKenna are going to be a handful. The problem for JT is that he, likely, didn’t put any oversight over these ministers and their antics because they are superstars. And one wonders why JT gave little regard for Minister Tootoo taking an indefinite leave of absence to go into rehab, but JT’s buddy O’Regan falls off the wagon and he earns a tearful statement from JT for his rehab stint. It appears that JT plays favourites. We’ll have to see how long this ego trip can keep it together.

PETER NETTERVILLE : 3 years and 6 months, or a LOT longer if the Libs manage to fix the electoral system. That would be a deadly blow to taxpayers.

Those of us concerned about government waste need to focus on the issue of electoral reform. If it goes ahead, Canada has seen its last conservative government.

Uh oh – LPC “optics” hiring coming home to roost – better call Saul ;-)

More telling than the spending is this guy’s qualifications for the position – go google his resume.

The extravagent reign of the “Sunny Ways King” continues and all the little piggies are happy gorging themselves at the trough.

Sadly, Peter is right.

If the Liberal Party of Corruption is going to waste money on parliament hill, why don’t they convert that big green space Mr. Lilley was broadcasting from into a windmill farm? This will show leadership in their socialist green shift through example as well as proving regressive socialists are not into NIMBY’ism.

That must be quite the opulent furniture.

Really, are we truly surprised? We all know that the Liberals can get away with wasting tax payer money and the main stream media will say nothing about it or if forced to report on it will down play the waste.

We are in for 3 year and 6 months worth of dumping tax payer money either down the drain or into the pockets of Liberals and their friends and the MSM will be just fine with all this.
