Liberals, bureaucrats try to mislead media, taxpayers about true cost of booze-filled “mile high” party

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

A couple of weeks ago, I speculated that the Department of National Defence had some trouble brewing, after discovering they were looking to hire journalists to teach new DND communications staff how to “spin” news to the media.

Now we know what that trouble is:

The DND and the Canadian Forces tried to mislead the Ottawa Citizen about the true cost of an ill-fated “Team Canada” mission to entertain Canadian service men and women stationed in Latvia last December.

The morale-building mission went sideways before it even landed.

According to the National Post, one passenger boarded with a 40 oz bottle of alcohol. Two others were so drunk, they urinated on themselves, forcing flight attendants to place the wet seat cushions in plastic garbage bags.

Passengers were chewing tobacco on the plane, spitting it in cups and handing it off to the flight attendants. There was even a band playing in the back of the plane and people were dancing in the aisles including, reportedly, some of Chief of Defence Staff General Jon Vance's own staff.

During this liquor-soaked fiasco, one flight steward was allegedly sexually assaulted by retired Toronto Maple Leafs player, Dave “Tiger” Williams, who was on the tour.

When Williams flew back to Ottawa, he was charged with assault and sexual assault by military police.

The abusive, drunken, sexually charged flight was bad enough but the ensuing cover-up and scapegoating of the flight stewards for leaking the details of the nightmare in the air made it worse.

According to the Ottawa Citizen, the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces statement to the newspaper suggested the VIP flight cost $15,000.

Instead, Access to Information documents obtained by the Citizen show that Canadian taxpayers spent $337,000 for the wild junket and the “mission” was planned by General Jon Vance's own office. Vance himself okayed the booze on the RCAF aircraft.

And those same documents show how high up knowledge of the cover-up went — all the way to Justin Trudeau’s Privy Council staff.

Justin Trudeau told injured Canadian veteran Corporal Brock Blaszczyk, that he was asking for more than Trudeau was willing to give when he questioned Trudeau’s treatment of veterans at a town hall event in Edmonton.

Maybe he should have been asking for a secret nightclub in the sky instead of fair compensation for the injuries he received defending Canadian values abroad.

As Trudie brings in Mega Thousands to Millions of Third World, Illiterate, Inbred Savages we get closer to a Forever Liberal Government. He is poised to import probably half a million Somali’s after signing his agreement in December with the nation killing United Nations. All in time for the next election, so that they will vote his party back to power forever. As they sweep across our nation taking final control of Canada. And they won’t be functioning under our law, expect that Sharia Law will be adopted into Canada. We want to make these people feel at home and welcome after all. Remember “Diversity is Our Strength.” By the time our next election date arrives, we will have taken in millions of these parasites, get ready folks, you are about to witness the END of Canada.

Lynda, I hope you’re right. I don’t think the Country can withstand another four years of this liberal government. I know I sure haven’t had much success with my friends and family. They all hate Trudeau but their Trump derangement syndrome trumps their common sense, if you’ll excuse the pun.

Stephen E. asked: I wonder, the 39% who voted him in, do they now feel as much of an idiot as he is? Or are they just too stupid to realise the truth?

I fear that the stupid remain stupid………………..

Canadian Taxpayers Association just released a report that Trudeau spent 23 million dollars on 600 plus brand spanking new vehicles for the recent G7 summit meetings we hosted.Some of these vehicles had less than 40 kms on them and now the Goverment is trying to sell them on their surplus sales.These elitists continue to kick taxpayers in the nuts and nothing gets done about it,where is the audits,the transparency and yet the asshole in Ottawa wants access to my banking info-go F yourself Trudeau you socialist rat!!!And what are the conservatives doing about anything,absolutely nothing they are cowards.No current Goverment in this country deserves our vote they are all elitists,time to clean house and elect a populist leader-Bernier is the last chance!! That 23 million could have helped our Vets but they are asking for more than Dumbass can give.

Maurice Potvin, you have a point but I think our echo chamber is expanding

There is absolutely much more depravation in everything conducted by the current Trudeau regime that never comes to the attention of the Canadian public. Liberals are very adept at covering up, shutting up and threatening those who know the truth about their despicable governance of our once glorious and great nation. Canadians must start fighting back against the depravity and lack of morality of the current regime if we are to save Canada from becoming a totalitarian post national state built on Trudeau’s ideologies.
It amazes me that the regime bobble-heads feel no shame for their tyranny and progressive fabrications while they compliantly direct Canada’s destruction under the tutelage of their evil princeling.

Spending a fortune for booze on a flight, especially if it is at the tax sucker’s (payer’s) expense is nothing strange or unusual for Baby Doc Trudeau. After all, $6K for plane booze is nothing new for him.

As for telling Corporal Brock Blaszczyk that there simply isn’t any funds for veterans, two weeks later dumber-than-a-rock Trudeau gave Afghanistan $41 million for its veterans pension and help, and only last week Canada is providing $2 BILLION dollars for India to build public housing, but not a cent for our poor needing public housing.

We are the bank, and to make certain that we are able to pay for the idiot emperor’s ways and frivolous expenditures, the banks are being forced to give all our confidential information to the government. You know, how and where you spend your (well, Trudeau’s) money.

I wonder, the 39% who voted him in, do they now feel as much of an idiot as he is? Or are they just too stupid to realise the truth?

All Prince Mohammad Trudeau and Liberals know how to do is lie and lie some more ( in between virtue signalling )

Trudeau’s a pig. Sucking from the head of the trough. I want everyone on their knees tonight and I want every American to drag their everyone they can to vote for truth. (Gods will). The world has normalized evil as evidenced by the record viewers of Bohemian Rhapsody. Hellywood has brainwashed the masses

Veterans just can’t get a break, as that smug retard Justin lies and gives non answers. The liberals and vet affairs are giving money to help fund terrorists, crazy.

We Rebel viewers live in an echo chamber. I believe it’s an echo chamber of truth, but it’s an echo non the less…. albeit conservative. We need to get this kind of information to the rest of Canada and the World. Us just knowing it isn’t good enough. Voters need to know about the corruption in Government and in its bureaucracies. Word-of-mouth just doesn’t cut it. How do we break through the general apathy of the average Canadian voter who doesn’t have the attention span to listen to anything beyond the sound bites of the Liberal spin doctors? Any ideas?

What else is going on in various departments under the guise of “team building”?!!!!

If the Liberals, full of their delusions of grandeur, carry on as they are, thinking that they can ignore the voting public and write things off with stupid lie’s, then they will end up in the junk pile where they belong. Election time will soon be here…. we can only hope that an election comes with it.

Corruption and the Liberals are inextricably linked.
