The “shocking” delegates the Liberals took to the UN Climate Change Conference in Poland

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

A response to Conservative MP Mark Warawa’s order paper question revealed not only what the Liberals spent to go to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Poland last December, but also, who they accredited as official Canadian delegates.


Warawa asked:

"With regard to the Canadian delegation to the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24) in Katowice, Poland: (a) what is the total number of members of the delegation, including any accompanying staff, broken down by organization; (b) what is the title of each member of the delegation, broken down by organization; (c) what is the total allocated budget for the delegation; and (d) what is projected or estimated travel and hospitality expenses for the delegation, broken down by type of expense?"

The trip was enormously expensive, according to the response from Environment and Climate Change Canada:

"The total allocated budget( estimate) for Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) was $805,664. This amount is an estimate and does not reflect the actual cost savings accrued through a number of measures taken to reduce costs such as early booking of airline travel.

Allocations from other departments and agencies have not been provided to ECCC. ECCC's estimated travel expenses were $653,447 and ECCC’s estimated hospitality expenses are $56,807”

Who the Liberals took with them to Poland to represent the country, was equally shocking.

The official Canadian delegation totalled 140 people. Of those, sixty-four were directly from the federal government and, according to an article on Carbon Briefing’s website, the delegation did not achieve gender parity. For shame. It’s the present year, people!

Quebec brought thirty-one delegates - the largest of any province. Ontario and Saskatchewan sent just one government delegate each.

The Liberals officially accredited six labour unions to join the official delegation, but only four private-sector groups, of which only one (Suncor) is an oil company.

They also accredited six representatives from the opposition parties. Green Party leader Elizabeth May brought her personal assistant, so did the Bloc representative. The solitary Conservative MP and lone NDP MP travelled unassisted.

The Liberals also accredited five Environmental NGOs to bring seven delegates. At least three of the five are explicitly linked to the anti-oil, anti-Alberta, Tides Foundation Canada - Equiterre, the Sisu Institute, and The Climate Action Network (through their member group, 350.org).

In the response to Warawa, ECCC made it clear that not all the non-governmental delegates got to Poland on the backs of the taxpayers, saying “Note that the Government of Canada does not provide financial support for the majority of these delegates. Canada grants accreditation to a large number of delegates to ensure Canadian participants have access to the conference venue and its events, which allows Canada to have a strong and diverse presence.”

“Strong and diverse,” except when it comes to opinions on climate change and carbon taxes.

Waste not, want… ah… Oh, its the Liberals. What was I thinking?

From 1998 when Gore went on his The Sky Is Catching Fire routine (and made over $100,000,000 from it) the planet hasn’t warmed up. Actually, slight temperature decrease, fewer tornados, hurricanes, and monsoons. But hey, lets spend 40 trillion dollars for something that hasn’t happened yet in the 21 years since we were told that we, not the sun, are making the planet into an oven.

Fact: for 95% of earth’s history it was warmer than today. Fact: CO2 levels are at the lowest since earth developed an atmosphere. Fact: two million years ago atmospheric CO2 was 1100% greater. Fact: just about all delegates to any of these conferences fly in and use limos to get around.

Just saying…

Climate Change? Bad weather? Storms?

I’d say there’s a massive U.N Muslim Migration Pact storm a comin’ to Canada, at the bidding of JIHADI JUSTIN & his SOMALI MUSLIM immigration minister (Of Canada? Go figure! Who’s idea was that? Oh, yeah… JIHADI JUSTIN)

Here’s a little more data in .pdf

https://www.odi.org/sites/odi.org.uk/files/resource-documents/11050.pdf

Super Rich Oil countries in the SUPER HOT ARABIAN DESERT pay NO fake carbon ISLAMIC JIZYA TAX to counter the so-called “Global Warming” (because Muslims don’t pay jizya, they “receive” the jizya money).

CANADIANS, put on YOUR YELLOW VEST! IBERALS

CSIS, CSEC, RCMP & Local Police, please join with us against JIHADI JUSTIN, the ISIS SYMPATHIZER and his band of ISLAMO-LIBERALS!

JIHADI JUSTIN wants to send YOUR JIZYA TAX money to MUSLIM COUNTRIES who pay NO fake carbon JIZYA TAX.

No MUSLIM COUNTRIES donating. Why is that?

Check out this INTERACTIVE from the NY Times…

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/06/02/climate/trump-paris-green-climate-fund.html

CANADA, STOP PAYING THAT DAMNED ISLAMIC CARBON JIZYA TAX!!!

JIHADI JUSTIN wants to increase the JIZYA TAX fifteen fold just as soon as he gets re-elected.

YOU’VE GOT YOUR POT, SO THERE IS NO MORE REASON TO VOTE ISLAMO-LIBERAL OR FOR THAT ISIS SYMPATHIZER!!!

HOW COME MUSLIM COUNTRIES DON’T PAY THE JIZYA TAX???

https://www.greenclimate.fund/how-we-work/resource-mobilization

Did you see any Muslim countries listed?

I didn’t either!

Sura 9.29 Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the (JIZYA) tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

JIHADI JUSTIN wants to SUBJUGATE Canadians to DHIMMI STATUS and IMPOSE the massive fake carbon ISLAMIC JIZYA TAX ENTon us in ACKNOWLEDGEMENT that Islam is SUPERIOUR!

I don’t know if it’s yourself filling out those FOI requests Sheila, or if it’s some ‘specialist’ who knows what the government needs to hear in order to legally comply with the law to provide the citizen with whatever they ask for about the government’s shenanigans…because filling out government forms asking for anything seems to me to be an art form!
I ask, because back in the 80’s and 90’s when I worked in live theater, TV and film (stage manager, tech director, camera man, special skills extra, etc.) the arts community, urban or otherwise, depended on a few select and able people who knew what the government (embedded liberal bureaucracy) ‘wanted to hear’ when filling out the forms, in order to actually get those Canada Council grants.
It seems the Trudeau regime has developed its own counter insurgency FOI army to prevent the legally mandated release of that information. And isn’t charging money for this information…illegal, or immoral, or something?!
Keep hammering at them Sheila…and Godspeed!

As for your reference to Climate Barbie being your personal Muse, which Muse are you referring to, is it Clio, Muse of history…is it Melpomene, Muse of tragedy…is it Terpsichore, Muse of the song and dance routine…is it Thalia, Muse of comedy…I’d appreciate it if you could explain what exactly she is a Muse to you of!

‘Dumping billions of gallons of raw Quebec sewage onto Baby Beluga’ is an incredibly exploitable visual – think Greenpeace…

Did that delegate have the right quota of LGBTQ,gender bender,indigenous representatives?

Odd that there are no disabled delegates on that list, or at least that I know of. Even so, what a waste of our tax dollars that climate humbug party was.
