The latest questionable Liberal fundraising story comes courtesy of Trudeau’s Justice Minister billing taxpayers for her per diems -- breakfast lunch and dinner -- when flying to Toronto for a swanky and exclusive fundraiser.
This is part of a pattern with Liberals finding ways to get you to pay for their fundraising.
Recall back in April, Jody Wilson-Raybould, Canada’s top lawyer as Attorney General, attended a fundraiser for lawyers at the Bay Street offices of Tory’s law firm. She said she was there as an MP, not as Justice Minister, but few of us believed it.
Why would Bay Street lawyers shell out big money to meet a lowly MP from Vancouver and not discuss why they should be appointed as a judge?
The event netted the Liberals almost 10K yet Wilson-Raybould stuck taxpayers with the bill for per diems even as by dinner time she was on Liberal party business.
Watch as I show you the same pattern of “coincidences” with other Liberal Ministers like Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Minister of Veterans Affairs Kent Hehr and Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr to name a few.
They’re sending ministers across the country to attend fundraisers and then finding a way to have taxpayers foot the bill by coming up with an event for them to attend.
The pattern repeats itself time and again.
Liberal cabinet ministers don’t go anywhere without holding a fundraiser and as long as they have a government event, you and I pick up the travel tab and everything else.
A government that campaigned on change can’t get away with saying the other guys did it. Besides, I’ve never seen such a well orchestrated pattern in all my time covering politics.
Event, fundraise, repeat and have taxpayers eat the cost.
Nice work if you can get it, but now that the Liberals have been caught, they need to end this questionable practice.
