Irony Alert! Finance Minister spent $160K on 3 day photo shoot to promote (deficit) Budget 2016

Rebel Staff

The Libranos are back! By now you know how our tax dollars are being wasted whether it’s our limo loving Health Minister or our Climate Barbie Environment Minister, Liberals just can’t seem to help themselves.

I suppose this is to be expected when you bring together a cabinet based on gender parity and fill it with people who have very little private sector experience. It’s almost natural for people like Philpott and McKenna to enjoy feeding at the taxpayer trough.

But there’s one member of this Liberano cabinet that should know better since he has a wealth of private sector and business experience and that’s Finance Minister Bill Morneau.

Yet, thanks to an order paper by Conservative MP Guy Lauzon, it’s now been revealed that the Ministry of Finance spent nearly $160,000 on a three day photo shoot in Vancouver for Budget 2016 back in March.

I know Vancouver’s scenic and all but how can that much be spent on a three day photo shoot?

I hope he starts paying attention to the optics of his government's financial management of the country.

We’re about to go $35B in debt in the first year and some will point to Alberta's downturn with low oil prices, or the manufacturing industry struggles with sky high electricity prices in Ontario but it starts at the top.

There is a clear differentiation between the Liberals who refuse to cut entitlements and cabinet spending and how Canadians are adapting to a slowed if not halted economy.

But should we expect anything less from our Libranos?

This is known as vote purchasing… It is the oldest trick in the world and businesses love it when politicians from the other side of the country come to them to spend money… The 150 grand was basically for PR and some vote trolling..

Was watching an interview on BNN the other day . . . a corporate CEO referred to Canada’s Finance Minister as a “Moron” . . . pretty much sums it up !

Wretch . . . is must really hurt to be this profoundly ignorant and clueless . . . Canada is fading today with Justin Butts and his band of loons !

Wretchedarse using the logical fallacy of tu quoque:

“Tu quoque “argument” follows the pattern:
Person A makes claim X.
Person B asserts that A’s actions or past claims are inconsistent with the truth of claim X.
Therefore X is false.2
An example would be

Peter: “Based on the arguments I have presented, it is evident that it is morally wrong to use animals for food or clothing.”
Bill: “But you are wearing a leather jacket and you have a roast beef sandwich in your hand! How can you say that using animals for food and clothing is wrong?”.“2
It is a fallacy because the moral character or past actions of the opponent are generally irrelevant to the logic of the argument.3 It is often used as a red herring tactic and is a special case of the ad hominem fallacy, which is a category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of facts about the person presenting or supporting the claim or argument.4

Wretched one…’re just another one of the leftist regressive fucktard cowards (most likely the same person) hiding behind a fake name. You don’t have the intestinal fortitude to reveal who you really are …….well……..because your a coward. Not only are you a coward, you keep regurgitating the same leftist regressive fucktard shit. So please enlighten us rebels on the daily life of a regressive parasite. Help understand your mental illness.

I really am speechless. $160,000? Over $50,000 a day? Baby Doc’s spending to get a seat at the UN Security Council is more of an infection that is spreading through his cabinet and cronies.

Its only taxpayer’s money, and there is a lot of it. Its only borrowed money that the taxpayers will have to repay. They won’t: they have indexed pensions.

Three more long, expensive, and cold years ahead.

There is no such thing as a Liberal. A true Liberal used to be, a long time ago, a middle of the road Pansy Potter, now they are far left Marxist Scum.

Trudeau needs to be tossed out of office, He ran as a Liberal and through the magic of Saudi and the UN, he actually won. The truth is that he is not a Liberal. Like his Daddy, he is a Marxist Communist Deadbeat, fit only for the Dumpster.

He gained his position, flying a false flag. He would be appreciated a lot more if he were laid out under this flag.

I love how Cumservatives try to spin their assholish ways by saying, “oh, that was in the past,” or “wait, wait, a squirrel” and try to point away from retard Harper-spending.

I always love how the Party of Liberal Corruption members have their sleeves rolled up and jackets off, like Morneau in the clip, as if they were doing real work for the people and not just siphoning off them.

Can you liberal idiots ever stay in the present? Or do you have some sort of insatiable need to try and deflect blame and attention away from the present?

You liberal retards wanted change… well, I guess there aint much change from your beloved liberals, eh, hypocrite? Just the same ol’ waste and then some (ie $127,000 to move Trudeaus “Butt” buddy Gerald from Toronto to Ottawa). Only a fuggin liberal can come up with such a ridiculous moving expense and have it approved by the head liberal thief.

There isn’t a single tax dollar that a liberal can’t waste!!!

METTE REED, Bill C-16 breezed through the House of Commons without a recorded vote on Third Reading on November 18th. However, on Second Reading, every NDP and Liberal member present voted for Bill C-16. Troubling that about half the Conservative M.P.s, including Rona Ambrose, and Michelle Rempel (a strong proponent), who should be standing up for our fundamental freedoms, voted for the bill including most of the leadership candidates, except for Andrew Scheer and Brad Trost.

Wretched do you work for one of those false news sites that are all the rage now? Libranos have stealing and wasting taxpayers’ money built into their DNA. They can’t help themselves. They expand the public sector but hate and destroy the private sector which is their bread and butter. Then they just pull out the credit card like its all normal behaviour. What proves it’s not just stupidity is that they’re so quick to finger conservatives for even perceived abuse. They honestly think they alone are entitled to this behaviour. What arrogance.

These open displays of ruling class profligate spending/waste on their vanity and comforts enrages me – we have found out there are several senors and elderly widows who may not ne able to stay in their homes because of increased energy costs and no compensation on their pension for the inflation.

I’s beyond scandalous id fvcking evil to waste like this when there are Canadians in need -Morneau and the rest of these entitled trough guzzlers should be cursed for their contempt for the underclass

…and Harper and the Cumservatives spent $13.5 million on their 2015 Budget ads and $100 million on those goofy Conservative’s Economic Action Plan ads. Don’t remember the crying back then though!
