Scandal is raging in Ottawa. So what does a responsible grown-up do in a crisis?
Well, we're talking about Justin Trudeau, so what he does is go on vacation to a private island in Florida.
I've covered Justin Trudeau's travel expenses extensively here at the Rebel, and I get a lot of criticism for doing so, even from people who tell me they're conservative, and who work for conservatives.
So let me be clear:
I fully acknowledge that Justin Trudeau cannot fly commercial.
But let's look at the gold standard of prime ministerial responsibility and accountability for a second: The Harpers.
Whenever they flew on the Challenger for personal reasons, they reimbursed the taxpayer for the cost of the flight had they flown commercial. It was a good balance between security and respect for the taxpayer.
And the Harpers didn't exactly come from wealth and means, whereas Justin Trudeau came into the job as a millionaire with a million-dollar car.
In this sickeningly slow economy, where we can't even get a pipeline built and there are looming layoffs in Alberta every single day, it's irresponsible and inappropriate to pay for a millionaire's private vacations.
But there's another reason to normal people find this sort of inefficient travel plans annoying:
The fact that the Liberals are the same one telling us we only have a few years left to live due to climate change.
As a wiser man than me once said, once they start acting like the climate is in crisis maybe I'll start acting like it is...
