Documents tabled by CPC MP Blake Richards put the cost of the federal government’s social media promo-tour on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at $13.7M, which is a lot of money to spend boosting Justin Trudeau’s image and non-existent government programs.
The biggest expense?
That would be the $4.3M Destination Canada spent on posts to promote travel to Canada. And the waste doesn’t stop there.
Watch as I share some of the other reckless ad spending which includes urging attendance at government run museums and parks, and the promotion of programs Canadians already pay for.
Health Canada spent over three quarters of a million dollars promoting their pet issues on social media and Heritage Canada blew through $830M to push Canada 150.
What do you think about this $13.7M the feds spent on social media?
For perspective, that’s about 170 times the amount the average Canadian family brings in per year.
