Is Justin Canada’s main tourist attraction? Feds spend $13.7M on PM focused social media ads

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

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.

But, no big deal for the Liberals. What else should we expect from a Prime Minister whose biggest priority is well staged selfies?

Hey short eyes… You’re hanging around this thread to…??

Well it’s obviously working since the rest of the world thinks Canada is awesome and wishes Trudeau was their PM/President.

Tammie – both would work fine. At least we wouldn’t have to listen to him stammer or look at him. We can also officially call him the “UN’s Sock Puppet!”

Deborah, he should be gagged with his tacky socks!
commented 2017-09-29 09:55:44 -0400
They should put one of his tacky socks over his head. I feel outrage every time I see a picture of this traitor!

What was it that the child said in that Kids book?
Was it, " But he doesn’t have any brains!"?

$13.7 M that could have been spent on a worthy cause instead the Lieberals waste it on a pile of dog sh_t.

This is typical of the Lieberal Party (cult).

I have it on “good authority” that the plan was that all these funds would be recovered by selling “Boy Blunder Socks” to Canada and beyond… But “sigh”.. doesn’t seem to have worked out, eh?…
commented 2017-09-29 03:08:30 -0400
That’s a lot of money.
commented 2017-09-29 01:15:11 -0400
Do they think people respect this buffoon?

Flat Earth, now you are talking! You wish to re-direct $850 million in government funds to the care of seniors and veterans. That is very noble cause, even scriptural.

How will you help re-direct this money? We can all use your suggestions. Have you been in touch with your member of parliament? Have you offered to volunteer in some way?

If the whole thing seems intimidating you are not alone. Ask the advice of people who are involved. Good Conservatives, good Liberals, good NDP.

How might you best help them in the months ahead?

$850 million absolutely wasted on Canada day which should have been spent on the people that made Canada day possible like seniors and veterans…!!

Short eyes… Are you still commenting here…?? I thought you’d be out there banging a drum for liberal pedophilia in support of Kathleen Wynne.!!

The Rebel continues to focus on the cult of Justin Trudeau. Yes, he is handsome, yes, he has nice hair, yes, he wears colourful socks.

Is this really what the Rebel wants to focus on? The so-called “main-stream media” moved on long ago. There are tax issues, human rights issues, and serious trade issues between Canada and the United States.

Does the Rebel intend to remain so petty and pretend their readers will go along with it. Many of us are fed up.

I have to agree with Canadian Mongrel’s comment’s below…It has to be the cbc…msm enforcers of corrupt propaganda for trudeau..mulcair etc..come on!!..What else could it be?

Well, he’ll certainly get the trans travel dollars.

Maurice, yes, those numbers are disappointing. Interestingly, Trudeau’s popularity is waning, it’s about bloody time! Why it has taken this long is beyond reason!
commented 2017-09-28 18:42:45 -0400
I suppose if the LPC government had something substantial to promote, then the costs might be justified. However, when its policies have been as vapid as Baby Doc, himself, or Climate Barbie for that matter, then it has been a total waste of money.
commented 2017-09-28 18:16:51 -0400
Tammie, those numbers are still very disappointing. They demonstrate that the vast majority of Canadians are completely unplugged from reality. If they were plugged in, Trudeau and Mulcair wouldn’t even hit the radar screen. In fact, neither would Scheer.

Simply disgusting.

missing a couple of words: “they” and “us”. You can take those words and figure out where to put them yourselves.
commented 2017-09-28 17:01:03 -0400
People voted for him. A guy with the IQ of a potted plant? A guy born with a silver spoon in his mouth? A guy who’s never worked a day in his life? Really? What the hell did they expect??? They voted for him and they have no right to complain now, when he destroys the country hope to inherit. It serves them right! No pity from me at all. Too bad the rest of us have to suffer along with them. That’s the part that really pisses me off!! Those stupid voters have affected as well.

It is hard to know what to say when the leader of your own country is making a ridiculous spectacle of himself gratis the taxpayer. I know a lot of people don’t pay attention but surely it is becoming evident that this is all distraction from the truly significant and serious changes going on in Canada and the world. There is a lot to be tending to and Justin is playing movie star. Poor Canada, circling the drain.

Social media costs are of no concern to mindless hairdo, the astronomical cost for the Canada 150 Celebrations is really disgusting.
