Trudeau’s high level staff “make out like bandits” while middle class get hosed

Brian LilleyArchive

Justin Trudeau tells us all the time that he’s all about helping the middle class but if that’s true, why did he think it was okay to hand over $1.1M of taxpayer money to high level, highly paid political staffers to move to Ottawa?

It’s not as if this figure was the result of a large number of staff paying for U-Hauls all across the country.

The excessive expenses Trudeau signed off on were related to the costs incurred by a few of those staffers to sell their homes but did they really need the help of the middle class to do that? Katie Telford made almost $500K selling her home and Gerald Butts sold his home for $630K more than he originally paid for it.

The defence has been these rules were put in place by the Conservatives but sources say Harper wouldn’t pay more than $30,000 for costs related to relocation. Some may find even that amount excessive but it pales in comparison to the numbers that have just been revealed for Trudeau’s staff.

Watch as I put those shocking figures in perspective in a way the average person of average means can relate to.

And remember this next time Justin is talking about how much he cares about the middle class.

I would like to see the itemised breakdown of the expenses claimed for both Butts and Telford. Can you get them through FOI. Any discrepancy must be referred to the RCMP fraud squad. Nothing will come out of it but it will keep the honesty question in front of the public rather than it being buried. I had thought these amateurs would last two elections before becoming a laughingstock but they may hit the Peter Principle wall in one.
Keep up the good work. The previous government died of a thousand small crisis-es some of which were made up but some were spin and some were justified. Time to return the favour

Leviticus 2013, I agree with you 100%! Canadians are gutless pantywaists and rather then get off their lazy asses, put away the G.D. shopping carts and cell phones to take a stand they are literally allowing themselves to be led to the slaughter! I warned people not to vote for this bastard yet here we are! He is so fucking stunned and narcissistic, he is DANGEROUS AS ARE THOSE HE SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH!! He not only is bankrupting we Canadians but Canada as a whole and rather than go out and attract industry he is too busy bringing in the islamic third world to suck the life out of us on top of it all! What the hell is wrong with Canadians?? Are they all just pathetically stupid and brain damaged or is it simply the fact they are sick of living??I SAY , SHUT THE WHOLE COUNTRY DOWN, NO ONE WORKING, NO MONEY FLOWING TO GOVERNMENT COFFERS!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! HAVE THIS MUTANT PULLED FROM OFFICE, CHARGED WITH TREASON AND HIS TRUST FUND SEIZED AND USED TO PAY BACK SOME OF HIS THEFT FROM US! FURTHER, REMOVE HIS CITIZENSHIP AS HE IS A TRAITOR, AND DEPORT TO THE MIDDLE EAST WHERE HE BELONGS AND NEVER, EVER ALLOW HIM TO RETURN TO CANADA AGAIN! SHOULDN’T MATTER TO HIM ANYWAYS AS HE HATES EVERYTHING CANADIAN EXCEPT FOR OUR MONEY AND IS MORE THAN HAPPY TO TELL US ALL. A ROTTEN TO THE CORE, PIECE OF RAW SHIT IS ALL HE IS!

This is a non issue, brought up by some in the media. This is government money, not ours, so it doesn’t concern us.

Money is never ours! It’s what the government lets us keep!

See the fucking internet troll everyone and his ignorant crap??? No need to reply. You can’t down vote this asshole, so just ignore him. This fuckhead is paid a minimum wage by some “interest” to write annoying stuff.

If you are going to do something, just tell this idiot to fuck off.

cmon $127000 from toronto to ottawa is a per kilometer bargain compared to the $80000 general broulard charged us to move 3 or 4 blocks in Ottawa.. besides if they pay it back they would be admitting malfeasance

This is the Baby Doc’s administration after only 10 months from the election. The entitlements are adding up quickly, along with the billions he is generously spreading around the world to buy a seat at the Security Council at the UN.

Will there be a foreclosure sign on Parliament in four years? Probably, with the way this empty suit is giving away tax money.

Have the liberals done enough yet that we can hang the whole lot of them for high treason?

Yup.. Here we go again..

If all these things bother us so much then let’s do something about it… Start asking everybody which town’s and cities there close to.. get organized… Meet people rent halls but most importantly inform those that don’t know..
It really is time to become proactive.!

Looking at these smug preening sphincter boys provokes a violent reaction in my normally placid emotional flow.

Where is the outrage from the left? Oh my bad, apparently it is perfectly acceptable that the Liberals are wasting astronomical amounts of tax dollars for various things since the election, but they tarred and feathered conservative Bev Oda over a $16 glass of orange juice when the conservatives were in power.

Liberals = Hypocrites

Two things we can do…!! Number one we can sit and complain and piss and cry like the whiners that Canadians have become or we can get organized rent some halls get people together and start to make a difference that they can’t help but notice..
YOUR CHOICE..!!!!
