Trudeau Liberals WASTED nearly $3M — to promote tweets on Twitter

Ontario Conservative MP Guy Lauzon has asked a very profound order paper question that reveals Justin Trudeau and the Liberals laser-like focus on the perception of social media popularity at any cost.

Lauzon asked:

“With regard to expenditures related to Twitter since January 1st, 2016, broken down by department and agency, what are the details of all such expenditures including date, amount, topic, and tweet that was promoted if known, and a description of the goods or services provided is different than a promoted tweet?”

I knew the Liberals spent a lot of money on social media, but I didn't think the response to this order paper question would be 212 carefully itemized pages long.

Today, I examine the responses, ministry by ministry.

The worst offender was Veterans Affairs. While Trudeau was telling our wounded heroes they were asking for more than he could give, the ministry tasked with their care was giving almost $700,000 to Twitter for likes and retweets.

After going through the whole document, the total amount spent by the Liberal government to promote their tweets on Twitter is approaching nearly $3,000,000 over three years.

That’s enough to buy Captain Kimberly Fawcett 79 brand new prosthetic legs.

I guess Jihadi-Justin-Groper just doesn’t care what he lies about…and therefore nothing is sacred to him, in his pursuit of…what exactly?

Why would anyone want to defend our country when they’re treated this way?
Heartbreaking.

This is very stupid for the Lieberals to spend so much money. I am a vet we vets who need VA support and services know they exist in the first place and VA is NOT a public service therefore no need for marketing. Disgusting, wrong and telling of the Lieberals.

How typical it is that Liberals squander money while being stingy to veterans. I’m praying hard that these Libranos get the boot this october.

Pardon the ignorance of someone who does not use social media,………..

C White, if you click on the ‘see more’ option on Sheilas column, all will be made clear.

The Marxist that are the Liberal Government are becoming arrogant and careless in their spending of taxpayers money, they need to be reminded that they are the servants of the people. Pay back will come at election time…Crescendo and Diminuendo.

Pardon the ignorance of someone who does not use social media, but isn’t twitter a free service for users paid for by advertising? So what has been proven is that no one tracks Canadian gov’t tweets, unless they advertise their tweets on twitter.

I don’t think that is a problem for the Trump administration, nor the AOC opposition.
