EXCLUSIVE: See Carr’s “outrageous liquor bill” and “photography expenses” for hockey outing

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Last summer Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr took two Energy Ministers, one from the US and another from Mexico, to a Winnipeg Jets game. Then he charged Canadian taxpayers $1,784 total, for limos and NHL tickets. 

At the Rebel, we just knew there was way more to the story than a ritzy night of hockey and limos.

We were right:

Through Access to Information filings, I have proof of the real cost for Jim Carr to wine and dine the pair of politicians, two ambassadors, a translator and one security agent.

And do I mean "wine and dine":

Watch my video to see the outrageous liquor bill!

A little chump change here a little chump change there, a few overlooked expense account fau-paux’s followed by an entire cabinet as well as a unqualified PM gifting billions of dollars at the expense of future generations of our bankrupt country and you have the oversight necessary to understand the clear and present danger this Liberal government poses to all Canadians.!!!

James Van Halen can pay for this chump change as he calls it by fellating for nickels.

I actually don’t have a problem with … most … of this. I get the tickets, the meals, and even the booze (it’s high, yes, but once you’ve started it and said you’re paying for it, whaddya gonna do?). At worst, just looking at that, it’s a situation the minister could have just given a shrug and most Canadians I think would be willing to let it pass. When the Mexican government’s paying, make sure you get the good stuff, I guess. It’s excessive, but not scandalous. Then there’s the transportation. That’s scandalous. What did they use, helicopters? But the photographer? Ho – lee SHIT! I’ve been, and continue to be a professional photographer. I’ve done literally thousands of portrait sessions, and probably a couple hundred on-location. I don’t even charge that much for a wedding! (I know, but I’m cheap) And “distribution”? WTF? I don’t think theRebel has looked into this enough. I’d bet large that the photographer that was used was connected, and connected deep. The whole need was contrived, as they probably could have just asked any of the reporters handy to follow them around; they’d get all the photos they would need for nothing more than a good quote. Continue digging Sheila, there’s more to this.

Well what did Jesus say about that serpent. It might be a medically designated sign of psychopathy but it may also have something to do with selling your soul.

Thanks for the update Ken.

Another way to look at it, $190 000 or 63% raised. Not bad for a six week campaign that included a week and a half of bad PR right after the campaign started. Good to see it back on track, probably successfully concluded in four weeks.

Of course the MSM wasn’t interested in the story. They are only interested in glasses of fresh squeezed orange juice, particularly when purchased by a non-white conservative. They have no interest in the drunken spree of a pure white liberal minister.

Carr has snake eyes because he is a snake.

1 Bottle of Don Julio would have been a lot cheaper but alas nothing but the best when you are on the tax payers dime . Canadians should be able to write it off as a expense .

Great report Sheila. Just over $800.00 in booze for for this small group of people!!? Did the official photographer happen to take pics of them vomiting after the game or being carried out by security agent?

All liberals have that dead snake look in their eyes. That’s a sign of a psychopathy.
