Trudeau’s magazine subscriptions are... censored!

David MenziesMission Specialist

The Trudeau Liberals promised openness and transparency upon taking office in 2015, yet whenever we make Access to Information requests, we eventually receive heavily redacted documents based on alleged security or privacy concerns.

But, why the cone-of-silence treatment on our latest request asking what periodicals Justin was subscribing to?

After all, back in 2001 when he was a snowboarder or a part-time drama teacher or something like that, he was asked by the National Post how he kept up to date on current affairs, and his response was to say, “I don’t read newspapers. I don’t watch the news. I figure, if something important happens, someone will tell me.”

So we were curious what source material Justin was using to enrich his mind since snagging the PM gig.

We asked:

“For the period between Jan. 1, 2017 and Apr. 1, 2018, I would like to see all records of subscriptions to all newspapers, magazines or other publications for 24 Sussex, Rideau Cottage and the Prime Minister’s residence at Harrington Lake.”

Amazingly, all the names of those various magazines were … censored! How can a subscription to a magazine be a matter of national security?

It remains a mystery what sort of periodicals Justin is subscribing to, but I have a few guesses based on what’s available at the newsstand and what we know about Trudeau.

Anyway, dear viewers, at this point I ask you to weigh-in: What is Justin Trudeau’s favourite magazine?

Is it Chatelaine, Tiger Beat, or DiversityCan? Or, do you have your own theory about what Justin’s reading to enrich his beautiful mind?

Please feel free to offer feedback in the Comments section. I can’t wait!

We are probably paying for someone to read him bedtime stories with his milk and cookies!

It is obvious the only magazine he reads is High Times. The magazine of the marijuana crowd.

Justin Trudeau can read?? Well who knew?

I don’t know what magazines PMJT reads, but as a public service, I think we should buy him subscriptions to those he likely wouldn’t read. My top choice: Guns & Ammo :-)

Funny… had just recently watched this from Roaming Millennial…

Mind you, I think Buttskie is a bit more articulate “front-loading” what BB is to say; it just inevitably gets garbled in the actual delivery…

Magazine’s redacted: The Femme Mirror, BP Magazine (bipolar), the Globalist, Islamic Horizons, MacLean’s…

Well; He said it himself :- "I figure, if something important happens, someone will tell me.” And that ladies and gentlemen, is why our Boy Blunder Prime Minister gets “what to say” put in his mouth each and every day by Puppetmaster Buttskie!…

Our little cupcake at the helm probably subscribes to Cosmopolitan,Dictator Weekly,and something on the fruity side-is there a Pride Weekly?

Schmuck & Putz Weekly is his favourite…….He has been featured as centerfold numerous times.It also has cartoon pages with pictures that you can colour with your crayons.He is not keen on these….as he keeps colouring outside the lines.Apparently,he cannot read and follow the instructions…..

My opinion is the redactions indicate comic books or graphic magazines. They could not be any other kind, left or right, because one has to be able to read and comprehend even the Star. Is Justin able to do either? Oops…sorry…comprehension applies to graphic magasines as well, so I am at a loss as to what Justin subscribes to.
