Trudeau's Florida vacation hurts taxpayers AND the environment

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, guest-host Sheila Gunn Reid explained what's REALLY wrong with Justin Trudeau's Florida vacation.

I fully acknowledge that Justin Trudeau cannot fly commercial.

But let's look at the gold standard of prime ministerial responsibility and accountability for a second: The Harpers.

Whenever they flew on the Challenger for personal reasons, they reimbursed the taxpayer for the cost of the flight had they flown commercial. It was a good balance between security and respect for the taxpayer.

And the Harpers didn't exactly come from wealth and means, whereas Justin Trudeau came into the job as a millionaire with a million-dollar car.

In this sickeningly slow economy, where we can't even get a pipeline built and there are looming layoffs in Alberta every single day, it's irresponsible and inappropriate to pay for a millionaire's private vacations.

But there's another reason to normal people find this sort of inefficient travel plans annoying:

The fact that the Liberals are the same one telling us we only have a few years left to live due to climate change.

As a wiser man than me once said, once they start acting like the climate is in crisis maybe I'll start acting like it is...

Sheila you know that only people other than Left wingers create pollution when they travel.
They have magic powers that negate their pollution that us mere peasants are not able to conjure, at least it seems that way when they virtue signal while not practicing what they preach.

I know just what you mean….I’ve got a Miles McInnis type old friend who rags on me about owning a Jeep Wrangler (carbon footprint 200gms CO2 per kilometer driven)…but because he is a British Leland afficinado he would be delighted if I drove a Land Rover Defender (280 gms per kilometer).

He himself drives an MG (1967) that is right off the charts for emissions but he is “grandfathered”…he also flys to Cuba and back twice a year and not one…nope…nary a one car in Cuba would meet North American emission standards….and he thinks that’s great…..not that I actually give a shit.

October and Trudeau’s defeat can’t come fast enough for me. The little terd needs to be flushed, along with all the sewer rats in his gang.

I tried to watch the second half of your show, but the nails were too distracting, had to turn him off.
