Order paper reveals bloated bureaucratic salaries for Trudeau's Youth Council Secretariat

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Our selfie Prime Minister Justin Trudeau captured the enthusiasm of millennial voters like no other Canadian politician, but with the elections of Jagmeet Singh to lead the NDP and Andrew Scheer as CPC leader, he’s now the oldest of the three major party leaders. 

At a full seven years older than Scheer and Singh, how exactly will Trudeau keep hold of young voters next time around?

Well, in part with his initiative called the Prime Minister's Youth Council.

Thirty Canadians aged 16-24 make up this council which meets several times per year to advise Trudeau on issues such as the economy, education, climate change and other youth issues.

It sounds good to get Millennials engaged in the political process but the problem is, it’s becoming a big waste of your taxpayer money.

And, in true Liberal style, it also has a strong hint of elitism.

Watch as I explain what was revealed in an Order Paper Question from NDP MP, Anne Minh-Thu Quatch regarding the budget for the entire office including all the bureaucrats hired to run the operation.

Trudeau promised modest deficits in the last election, but when you take an inherited surplus and turn it into a deficit of nearly  $20B, there is a systemic spending problem.

Sure, a couple million for meetings, and $5 million more for salaries might be a drop in the bucket comparatively, but there is little evidence this Youth Council is actually addressing any serious issues for young voters.

Rather, it seems to be an avenue to continue Trudeau's popularity and secure the youth vote among Millennials who will make up the biggest generational block of voters next election.

I expect Andrew Scheer and Jagmeet Singh to join Trudeau in courting their votes but glamourizing this Youth Council as some kind of important bureaucracy with fancy meetings is just sending the wrong message.

This weekend, the NDP gave Conservatives the break we so badly needed. If Quebec accepts Jasman Singh’s religious turban, this man will take back at least 40 seats from Trudeau’s Liberals. That will open the door for a good Conservative leader to also take 40 seats from the Liberals, probably from Ontario and Atlantic Canada. This should give the Conservatives a Majority.
We need Bernier, Rempel or O’Leary to lead the Party to Victory.
PS Singh is dynamic like Trudeau except he has some brains.

It’s another one of JT’s boondoggles.

He virtue signals like a madman to win support; then, he virtue signals like a madman to deflect the fact that he does nothing about any of the initiatives he claims to support. At some point, no one will believe him. So what does he do? He virtue signals again and launches another boondoggle.

Indigenous people are staying away from JT, and Millenials have taken to publically cat-calling him.

JT has only two options…

Fleech as much as he can before the deluge.

Or, use his allies among ANTIFA and Islamists to cause one crisis after another.

War is coming.

Be ready.

It is true that 7 million is a drop in the bucket for Canada’s Budget. It is also true, Take Care of the Nickels and the Dollars Take Care of Themselves .

More waste by LPC!
Eight people to run such a small Council, unbelievable! The budget for the meetings themselves is high; have they never heard of Skype?

Doesn’t matter what they do with Millenniums these cucks are not paying attention or paying big tax bills yet – Truedough is going to be a one term wonder IF Sheer can present a viable alternative to the chaos of this dummy gummint.
