McKenna’s climate expedition to Poland cost taxpayers $400K (so far)

Today I’m taking a break from the cheap vitriol and character assassination of the Alberta election and seeking comfort in my muse, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna.

Thanks to an order paper question from rookie Calgary MP Tom Kmiec, we now have a better idea of just how much money the Liberals, under the leadership of McKenna, blew on themselves and their friends at the UN Climate Conference in Katowice, Poland last December.

He’s a smart cookie and asked some excellent questions, as I’ll show you today.

The answers he received aren’t all that surprising. The Liberals spared no expense on themselves and their pals, and four months later, the final tally still isn't in.

Transport, including airfare taxi and ground transportation was $57,441. Meals and incidentals amounted to $11,051. Lodging totalled $227,115. Equipment shipping fees totalled $1,667. And “Other” costs, were nearly 14 bucks.

Hospitality costs have yet to be processed but I think it’s safe to assume those are going to be astronomical.

The tentative bill for the Poland climate expedition, without hospitality costs, is nearly half a million dollars - a whopping $400,453!

Of the 138 person delegation, seven trudged off to Poland for the sole purpose of running communications. This might seem like a lot but is actually the only good news from this expensive fiasco.

Normally, McKenna has an army of 24 people running her flub-prone communications and social media accounts.

Finally, McKenna did her part for the environment by leaving 17 of her staff at home.

Not to worry!… Spring is coming, and time to drag out the famous bicycle so Climate Barbie can go riding in high heels again, eh?…

Over $57,000.00 each.

Some good points Stephen but our sub moronic trust fund baby virtue signalling attention whore PM would never dress up in a traditional Polish outfit because he would probably consider that “racist” because Poland is a white country.
And the weak pussy certainly couldn’t handle one drop of Polish Vodka

Well, as usual, the Liberals certainly know how to get the least out of the most bucks spent. Why does she need more than a delegation, and I will be generous about this, of ten or eleven aids or assistants of various titles, including one press secretary with a cell phone or camera that can video record and take photos.

Is this a matter of her showing off how big her contingent she can schlep after herself? Showing off how much Canada can throw at a useless conference?

Good thing our idiot PM didn’t show up… That would mean at least thirty more butt-kissers, a private chief, his nanny, several relatives, seven local festive traditional outfits, and switching from wine to that famous drink that originated in Poland: vodka. With the last one, we would watch him fall flat on his face in his 17 century Polish folk dance attire. But would anyone notice?

“Climate change” is obviously the latest fig leaf for implementation of the NWO and the destruction of the working class and the (former) middle class of the Western World. The West is ruled by treacherous treasonous political elites paid off by the UN…..the time for revolution is now

Skype should be used for all conferences considering the Liberals and the UN CLAIM to care about the environment, their carbon footprint is beyond obscene.

The astronomical waste is expected though, anything a Liberal does costs up to ten times or more than it should.

I’ll keep this and other wasteful expense in mind in the event Canada Pension Plan tries to throw me off my disability pension which I worked hard for. Those clueless twats have no idea of how most of the country lives. I know it’s true from 14 years of conflict with civil servants about saving money. By the way, I once saved my department a thousand dollars but nobody gave me any reward for that. I was a peon who was tired of being peed on.

Hats off to Tom Kmiec.
