REPORT: Trudeau Liberals spent $13K on in-flight CATERING — in FOUR MONTHS

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Remember when I told you how Justin Trudeau spent upwards to $348,000 on food and alcohol in a period encompassing five flights?

The details were made public through an order paper filed by Conservative MP Bev Shipley, who asked the federal government to provide information on the cost of alcohol and food purchased on government-owned Airbus and Challenger aircraft.

During Trudeau’s “ten-day world tour” flight on November 9-19, 2018, the PM and his entourage spent $142,786 on food and $961.30 on alcohol. The drink tab included 53 bottles of wine and 53 cans of beer.

That story was huge for us and it was re-reported elsewhere. I think we may have helped Conservative MPs find the courage to dig a little deeper. Conservative MP Dean Allison followed up with a similar order paper question, this time, for the first four months of 2019.

Allson asked the government to provide flight details, passenger manifests and catering bills for the government-owned Airbus and Challengers

There weren’t any scandals uncovered in this OPQ that we didn’t already know about the Trudeau’s. They love to take advantage of all the taxpayer perks they can, like a $185 bill for a flight from Ottawa and Montreal and back for Trudeau and 3 staff. How did they have time to eat that much on a 40-minute flight?

On March 9, on the Trudeau family vacation flight to Fort Myers, Florida, they ran up an inflight food bill of $1,500.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau spent $460 on catering for his Edmonton to Montreal flight. Those clearly aren’t McCain Superfries he's eating. Just don't tell his in-laws, the uber-rich french fry moguls.

On April 23, just one month after the last vacation, the Trudeaus blew through another $1,000 in catering for family getaway flight to Tofino.

The Liberals spent nearly $13,000 in catering (excluding alcohol) for Challenger flights in just four months.

Of course, the Trudeau's cannot fly commercial but they certainly can reimburse the public for the cost of a commercial flight for their family vacation, the way the Harpers always did.

And they can pay for their own food on their family vacations the way the rest of us do.

22 bucks a plate is hardly luxury… and that was the worst one they could find.

Andrew Stephenson if a rich private business owner wrote off the same expenses would you fell the same?? Or are they not deserving as tyrannical politicians?

Funny how SJW progressives are fine with a left wing pig of a politician to live the high life off of the taxpayer but when a rich private citizen lives large on their own dime they are hated and called greedy and decadent by people like Andrew??

Andrew Stephenson they can eat basic food, they do not need luxury you elitist fool. Funny i thought Socialists wanted everything equal??

No, I don’t expect them to eat the standard sad little sandwiches. Do you think Trump eats those little microwaved trays of pasta on Air Force One?

But, at the same time, I don’t find 185 dollars for four people for two flights (it was a return trip) to be particularly extravagant either. That’s 22 dollars per meal per passenger.

Frankly, given the 3500/hour cost of the plane itself, it’s trivial.

The “40 minute flight” observation is irrelevant. If you have a busy itinerary (if you’re flying instead of driving to Montreal from Ottawa, that’s probably the case) it makes sense to eat when you have the downtime.

Do you really think that Justin eats “sad little sandwiches” on these flights, even a 40 minute flight.? His extravagant expenditures on food and booz, lots of booz is well documented.

Most of these are 30-50 dollars, which is a typical per-diem meal rate… The Tofino flight was 110/pax for a three leg return flight, three to four meals. not unreasonable for fifteen hours on a plane. The going rate on a sad little sandwich and a pop in steerage is like twelve bucks.

He’s such a typical dictator.

$185.00 for a forty minute flight! Has Justin gone back to his old habit of eating Homo Sapiens again?…..If you know what I mean.
