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.

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.
