A few months ago, using Access to Information requests, we asked for details about all the food and booze ordered for Justin Trudeau's India trips, as well as a couple of other trips that took place around the same time frame in early 2018.
We got back 366 pages of gourmet food menus and adjustments for the discerning and expensive Trudeau palate.
The ATIP was so liquor-soaked that the details of the high flying booze cruisin’ required their own video. (I'll get to the food another day...)
In an email chain between two bureaucrats, we discovered how flight staff had a policy of keeping special vodka on hand, just for Trudeau.
On the Delhi leg of Trudeau’s humiliating and ill-fated trip to India, arrangements were made for 44 bottles of wine and 12 cans of beer to be served at a dinner for just 40 people!
Normally, that much booze improves my dancing skills. Trudeau? Not so much.
The seemingly never-ending requests for wine and beer began to confuse the DND staff responsible for stocking the PM’s Airbus. A February 14, 2018 email reads:
“To be clear, are the additional 36 bottles for the reception or a different event?”
Trudeau’s garish performance in India embarrassed Canada and harmed our relationship with the world’s largest democracy.
However, credit where it is due:
I’m surprised Trudeau could walk in India, let alone dance.
