EXCLUSIVE: ATIP docs reveal high cost of “King” Ralph Goodale’s vanity

Brian LilleyArchive

Remember last year’s stories about Environment Minister Catherine McKenna spending over $6K for a photographer to cover her at the Paris Climate Change Conference? Well it turns out Ralph Goodale is just as vain about his image. 

It seems the Minister of Public Safety spent a similar amount to get pretty pictures of himself taken in Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto and back home in Regina.

Watch as I show you what I found after going over Goodale’s expenses because it seems he loves his own image, loves getting photos taken but also loves spending your money on silly things and expensive dinners.

It’s disappointing to see Ralph Goodale act like this with taxpayer dollars. He’s always seemed like one of the reasonable Liberals, the good ones.

But this batch of expense claims makes it look like he is falling into that old Liberal trap of feeling entitled to your entitlements.

It’s a real shame Ralph.

I think this nut should go to the back 40 along with the fruit cakes that keep voting him in.

This clown is a classic example of why we should have term limits for Politicians.

Who wants to look at pictures of this guy?

Our mobile devices take pretty awesome pics these days & Walmart does pretty Ok prints. Canada is BROKE, every penny counts right now. Stop the $$$$ bleeding! We need healthcare, debt reduction, senior & disability care, etc. etc. etc. With all due respect, no amount of professional photography will make Mr. Goodale any better looking. Catherine McKenna (who we disagree w/ in terms of Carbon Taxes) is beautiful & needs no extra help anyway, so a cell pic would have been just fine for her too.

I think it would be great if there was a section on the rebel that kept track of all the expenses of these fat cats.

We have Criminals and Traitors running the country.

Bill Elder; sadly no doubt your right about that. Every liberal now tows the party bs line. He’s our public safety minister but does nothing. They might as well eliminate the position. If there’s one thing we can learn from liberals is that not one of them can ever be trusted. Every one seems to be completely on board with the invasion and it’s all the same “nothing to see here folks”.

What was it that Chretien called it during Shawinigate…? Oh, yeah. “The usual operation.”

Some of those politicians are totally out of touch with the average Canadian. Goodale & many others have been in gov’t so long & living off the hog with a ton of perks & expense accounts & they bleed it to the limit.
There are only a few whose extravagant & capricious purchases & spending have been found out & exposed & it is my guess that there might only be a handful who do not take advantage & the rest are all guilty. Nobody is taken to task because it would be quite embarassing to reprimand his ministers when Justin himself is the biggest spender of all.

Brian, you did not think Fatty RalphY was vain/???? He is a Liberal. isn’t he!

Ralph is the oldest whore on the Librano hooker stroll. He survives in Cabinet and racks up perks unchallenged because he knows where every skeleton and corpse from the Librano crew is buried – if he was ever tapped for a crime he would sing and it would make Adscam look like a flap over fixing a speeding ticket.

Those liberals are not royalty but thieves and criminals. Those photograph expenses are nothing compared to the 38 billion a year deficit that they are stealing. How can we go from a surplus in 2015 to 38 billions of spending in less than 2 years? They must all be stealing our money big time.

These cream puff Liberals all like to have their Photo’s taken, they dream of future history books. Well this Liberal Government certainly will go down in History. They will be recorded as the worst Government that Canada has ever known.
The Government responsible for the Genocide of It’s own people.

Brian Lilley, like you, I would like to see some of these “pretty pictures”!
How could they be discussing National Security at Mother Theresa’s when Canada doesn’t have National Security?! It would be like convening a meeting at Fisheries & Oceans in order to hammer out the Cod initiative.

Canadian Mongrel totally agree DO NOT SPOIL KLIENS GOOD NAME with this entitled liberal,

Good report, but I have one complaint as an Alberta.

Don’t call Goodale ‘King Ralph’ or even ‘Ralph’; only one politician deserves that honour and it was a positive one from Albertans.

Instead call Goodale ‘Rawlph’ as in a dog barking because he is now a Baby Doc lap puppy.

WOW, the photography bills are likely so high because of all the cracked and shattered lenses.

Hence my constant reference to Ralph “GUCCI” Goodale. Slippery, greasy Lib with ties to ADSCAM and beyond. So impeccably dressed and groomed at all times. Almost mafia like. I argued at length with one of my relatives who was originally from Saskatchewan. He is a good conservative but always stuck up for Ralph, who no doubt did do some good things over his political career. Too bad liberal narcissism gobbled him up, being liberal it was probably lying in a latent state…but it got him. His performance for the cbc at the Emerson boarder was epic. As for his spending follies, the more waste the better. He is a lieberal, its tax payer money, who cares?
