Trudeau's “Welcome To Canada” tweet cost Immigration officials nearly $200,000 in damage control

Today I'm bringing you a brand new order paper response that shows how Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada went on an expensive search engine advertising campaign to fix the damage done by one Justin Trudeau tweet.


DONATE TO THE REBEL

The question came courtesy of Conservative MP Steve Blaney.

He asked:

With regard to expenditures on government advertising with Internet search engines such as Google and Bing, since January 1, 2016, broken down by year: (a) what are the details of all expenditures, including (i) amount, (ii) date and duration of contract, (iii) vendor, (iv) name of search engine (v) purpose of advertisement or summary of campaign; and (b) what is the total of all expenditures in (a), from January 1, 2016, to April 4, 2019.

The 135-page response from the Government includes evidence that Environment Minister Catherine McKenna spent $130,000 to try to get people to click on the climate change website and another $48,000 to get people to click on her nature website.

It also demonstrates that Justin Trudeau's January 2017 “Welcome to Canada” tweet meant to shame President Trump for his travel ban ended up costing nearly $200,000 when IRCC had to begin targeting search engines with advertising meant to dispel myths about illegal immigration.

The ad buys were part of an “irregular migration campaign” which “sought to reach individuals in the United States with temporary protected status to provide factual information about Canada's asylum system and to dispel misinformation suggesting that Canada will accept without question anyone claiming asylum between ports of entry or anyone with temporary protected status in the United States.”

However, very little of the search engine advertising cash was spent in the 2017 calendar year, with only $9,100 forked over to the likes of Google and Bing for immigration advertising. The Liberals were unconcerned with the Trudeau-created chaos at illegal points of entry until November 2017 polling showed Canadians' opinions were hardening against unfettered and illegal migration.

And that's when the Liberals tried to pump the brakes at the border.

From January to March 2018, IRCC spent $57,000 on search engine targeting. July to December 2018 another, IRCC spent another $20,000.

Then in just two months, from the beginning of February to the end of March 2019, the Liberals spent $102,500 on a massive Google and Bing ad buy.

All told, nearly $189,000 was spent to try to undo the fake news Trudeau spread with just one tweet.

The Peoples Party of Canada will clean up Justin’s mess.
No carbon tax, no federal climate change policy.
150,000 immigrants max. Skilled, must speak French or English. Must respect Canadian values.
Fence to stop the illegals coming across at the Manitoba and Quebec border.

The PPC could have the balance of power, enough seats to begin a change very long over due for Canada (if not win outright, stranger things have happened).

Justin is spending our money to lie to us, keep the truth from us by hiding information and broadcasting irresponsibly so that our vulnerable border is breached by illegals who didn’t have to be told twice to ‘come on in’.
Trudeau is without a doubt the most irresponsible PM this country has ever seen and I hope for the nation’s sake will ever see again. Justin is a slimy disingenuous politician and he wastes our blood sweat and dollars on hoodwinking and controlling us.

Just months after they voted for the tit all the Liberals I know were shaking their heads and whining about the tide of refugees.

At least I was getting a bit of satisfaction pointing out that they were getting exactly what turdo had promised and what they had voted for.

The check for idiocy and degeneracy for Canadians will come in October. Today, PPC is the only choice to avoid the complete destruction of this country or the transformation into canadistan, which is the same.

To this day Trudeau and his regime minions refuse to acknowledge that the prime twit’s virtue signalling tweet is responsible for the flood of illegals that still continue to cross Canada’s borders. Trudeau is forcing Canadians to provide more to the illegals than they themselves receive through their own taxpayer dollars. Trudeau is a catastrophe, the most useless and despicable blight Canada has had the misfortune to endure.

Did the prime twit not also run to the podium to announce his decision that Canada would fill the hundreds of millions gap left by the sane Pres. Trump after he pulled back the US donation to countries with questionable involvements? Trudeau, since day one, has spent billions of Canadian’s tax dollars trying to buy himself friends to satisfy his huge narcissistic ego and deep rooted need to be recognized and accepted.

“He’s just not ready” was the understatement of the century.

Bruce Atchison suggested Let’s do all we can to undermine his re-election by getting on Andrew Scheer’s case to be tough on Trudeau.

This really angers me. That irresponsible fop goes and makes a fool of himself and has zero understanding of the real world. Let’s do all we can to undermine his re-election by getting on Andrew Scheer’s case to be tough on Trudeau.
