Liberals enrich dictators, UN bureaucrats with $2.65B in “climate finance” aid

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Of all the things our federal Liberal government wastes money on, the biggest waste has to be the $2.65B we’ve committed to help foreign countries deal with climate change. 

No matter your position on the science, there is still debate on how cost effective it is to stop climate change rather than spending the money to adapt when and if changes occur.

And whether the government directs foreign aid to climate change or any other issue, it seems the biggest problem is the money never gets to the people that truly need help. Instead funds often go to line the pockets of tin pot African dictators and bureaucrats.

To find out what Justin Trudeau’s been doing with our hard earned tax dollars as he plunges our nation further into debt, Conservative MP Tom Kmiec submitted an order paper question asking the government to provide information on where, and how much money was going to various countries and how many jobs our dollars are being used for in those developing countries.

As you’ll see when you watch my video, the answer from Environment Minister Catherine McKenna leaves much to be desired.

Out of the original $2.65B announced in November 2015, $638.2M has been distributed with approximately $300M going to the Green Climate Fund, a UN body operating since 2010.

The second biggest item is $200M for African countries under G7 initiatives including $150M for renewable energy and $50M for climate risk insurance.

If we’ve learned anything in Canada and the U.S. about government money spent on renewable energy, it’s that it often results in the cronyist of crony deals, where taxpayers and the intended beneficiaries, are the biggest losers.

The most alarming aspect of the response was the lack of detail and the vagueness about how and where the funds are going and what jobs have been created, just some meaningless platitudes with no specifics.

The only certainty is that $1.8B has gone down the drain along with billions more as Canada falls further and further into debt.

We have a world government? When were the elections?

Sean Penson,We owe dictators and despots nothing!

What kind of an accounting system do the Liberals use? Very short on details of the breakdown of spending…if I gave such a meaningless report on spending to my Administrator, I would be sent back to my office to start over and provide an itemized accounting of spending. If I’m off by a few dollars, I look for it.
So there is the reporting problem and the problem of committing to that spending in the first place. The UN is a banana republic, and should be scrapped. Relying on junk science to bankrupt us!

@sean Penson….the world government is unelected…we don’t owe them fuck all.

@billy Howard…the reason why the CANDU reactor was a marketing failure overseas was because it does not produce enough weapon grade plutonium compared to it’s competitors. Electricity is only a bi-product.

The real crime here is these hard earned Canadian dollars are just being pissed away so these exo-moron scan look good to the rest of the eco-hypocrites at the luxury resorts they attend on our dime.

Sean Penson enjoys playing the part of the ultimate moron.

Peter Netterville, Thanks! I too had a similar comment to Sean (below).

Oh, one more thing Sean … I need your size. That shirt, it is the smallest beta male size, right?
commented 2017-03-28 09:55:53 -0400
Oh, and Sean. I’ll include in that a t-shirt with a picture of the greatest Canadian PM, Stephen J. Harper!

I am sure you will wear that t-shirt proudly.

Sean Penson said, “Canada rightfully owes the world government billions of dollars that the 2006-15 admistration witheld.”

You be a dear and pay that from your bank account.

Thanks Sean for covering Canada’s debt to the “world government” from your bank account. You’re such a trooper.

I’ll be sure to sent you a “Make America Great Again” hat and t-shirt, one with a picture of the great American President, Donald J. Trump!

The “climate change” scam has been a gravy train for bureaucrats and corporate climate profiteers who rely on rich government subsidies and corrupt carbon credit trading practices to generate wealth. Trump starts taking down the EPA today, get ready for the howls of outrage from left wing politicians and media as Trump starts removing the punch bowl. Al Gore will be having conniption fits.

Billy Howard, Well Said.

Giving Canadian tax payer dollars to other nations to fight climate change when we are struggling to make ends meet for our own people is outrageous and frankly makes me sick to my stomach. We are borrowing money to give away. How is that logical? We owe no other nation anything, we need to look after our own peoples needs first and foremost. Our Indigenous people do not even have clean drinking water, so Sean Penson, when you say we OWE the world, I say we OWE our own people FIRST!

The left like getting their marching orders from their one world government, the UN.

If you hire an Italian specialty chef, don`t be surprised when dinner is all Italian cuisine. When you elect an imbecile like Trudeau whose main and trusted adviser is totally connected with all the United Nations and Global crackpot initiatives , you should not be surprised that our country and sovereignty is being sold down the river.
Butts helped destroy Ontario before he got a promotion and the mandate to destroy the entire country. It is a tyranny , something Trudeau`s dad would have loved.

When you have a P.M.from QUE.and a blond minister who is green what do you get.

It is my firm opinion that the only reason Minister Catherine McKenna has her job is that she is doing the islamic prime minister of Canada while on road trips and in her office.

Keith and Helen Harvey, Well said!!

Resistance is Futile.
Every penny that goes outside of Canada’s border, will be used to do us harm in many ways.
We have been successfully invaded and are being conquered by the Liberal Government of Canada.
And it would appear we have surrendered without a fight.
Our freedom is being eliminated, along with free speech, we are becoming an oppressive regime.
We are importing our new rulers that bring with them an evil ideology.
Enslavement is imminent.

2,65 B for climate change in other countries and 11 Million over 11 years for housing needs in Canada.

As fanciful, and ultimately insane, as children standing on the shores of the Ottawa River, shredding 2.65 billion in dollar bills, because they somehow thing it will attract goldfish to swim up the St. Lawrence and the Ottawa Rivers to bestow blessings upon them… We are indeed now being governed by “children”…

The climate is always changing & no amount of money to stop this natural phenominem will do anything of the kind & they know it. Scientist after scientist speak out about this scam, yet Trudeau & Barbie continue on appeasing the UN & their environmentalist pals. We all know like you say Christopher that this money will only end up in the pockets of those dictators. Military funds are pulled back but plenty of it for their palsy walsies.
commented 2017-03-28 00:41:55 -0400
Billy Howard come now, you want the libs to actually do something rational and not fill their own pockets, or actually solve a problem rather than continue to use it as a way to tax us more and increase their power? That would take a brain and some integrity.
commented 2017-03-27 23:51:02 -0400
If the gov’t/taxpayer wants to help foreign countries control pollution, they should offer them credits towards purchasing made-in-Canada clean technologies like coal exhaust scrubbers or nuclear power plants. This would provide jobs for Canadians, help with the global environment, and fulfill virtue signalling requirements that Trudeau is so fond of.
But we all know those tin-pot dictators only want cash, not actual help to reduce pollution. Of course, Justin is more than happy to give cash, whatever it takes to virtue signal himself into some plum appointment at the UN, like Secretary General (the job Daddy wanted but never did get).

Any money given to the UN, especially ‘Green Climate’ is money going to Islam. Trudeau and his Gang are well aware of this.
As Canadians, we have to realize, We are paying for our own Funerals. Trudeau wears a coat of many colors and has the mind of a Rabid Dog. Canada would be a better place without him. He is giving Canada to Islam

As long as Trudeau controls Canada, the Muslims know they will win because Canadians don’t realize, We do not need to defeat them militarily; we only need to fight long enough for us to defeat ourselves by quitting. Eventually, Canada will expose her neck for them to slaughter.
