Trudeau treats himself to luxury renos on taxpayer funded lakeside retreat

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

Remember when Prime Minister Trudeau told an injured veteran in Edmonton that he was asking for more than Trudeau was willing to give?

Well, there’s nothing that Trudeau isn’t willing to give himself, as long as taxpayers are footing the bill.

The National Capital Commission has been quietly completing a series of renovations to the Prime Minister’s summer getaway, Harrington Lake.

Some of the construction is necessary upkeep on a property bought by the government as an official retreat in 1951, but many of the upgrades are ridiculous.

A $7,500 swing set, three patio umbrellas at $1,000 a piece, $45K for snow removal, including maintenance of cross country ski trails on the off chance the first family may pop in, and an electrical bill to wire a sauna more costly that the cost of wiring a modest middle class home.

You won’t believe some of the luxuries the prime minister is treating himself to with your money at his taxpayer-funded lakeside hideaway.

This renovation, like the one at 24 Sussex, is one of those things I wish Harper had done during his time as PM, though I admire that he was probably too cheap to do it.

But I’d rather have the frugal eye of a sweater wearing accountant overseeing construction costs, than a millionaire party boy who has never heard the word “no” in his life.

Why am I not surprised to read/hear this article? The Boy Blunder thinks he’s going to steal a second term in office so he and his family can enjoy the “cottage”.. Let’s all make sure that doesn’t happen.

If you dig deeper into purchases for Dacha-House ,you will probably find some extravagantly expensive prayer rugs. And I doubt you find a Gideon Bible in the guest rooms.

Meanwhile actual worthy human beings like our vets and our current troops are shit on and ignored by this spoiled brat.

No surprise here, Liberals are entitled pigs.

While we get dinged for Trudeau’s private playground, friends like a widow I know are having to spend their savings because of governmental diddling of her dearly-departed husband’s widow pension. This poor woman went through all the bureaucratic hoops but to no avail. I guess widows are asking more than the government can give too, eh? Well no wonder when the Libranos are milking us taxpayers for all they can get and the media are fine with that. Remember this in 2019 when, or if, we have an election.

The worthless entitled trust fund baby knows no different …..I guess it’s his way of helping the middle clathhhhh

Trudeau, Liberal that he is, is entitled to his entitlements.

The trouble with silver spoon is, is that he will cost the taxpayer thousands of dollars for the rest of his life even after he is not p.m. Why is that? Cause he’s gonna need body guards the rest of his life, as I’m sure that someone out there would want to do him in. Why? Because he’s a creep, sorry, an entitled creep.

Robert McClelland, the snow removal/grooming ski trails cost $45 000.00

Nice perks if you can get them.

My farm gets all the snow removed for less than 1,000 bucks a winter. And my snow removal is far larger than the POS in Ottawa. I wonder how the snow remover got that contract?

When you are born with a silver spoon in your mouth and a few people get down on their knees in front of you to provide sexual relief I guess you live better than the average Canadian these days.

How about the $17,000.00 spent on grooming the Dauphin’s private cross country ski trails? If man made global warming is so real, why is there any snow to be groomed?

Sheila, it has always bothered me a great deal Trudeau never thanked the injured war veteran for his service, then, added insult to injury when he claimed veterans are asking for more than the government can give.

Trudeau’s continued sucking of the taxpayer teat is appalling.

Most of the cost of the swing set was a gender impact study that had to be performed before installation.
commented 2018-06-18 19:49:00 -0400
Oh c’mon, Sheila the $7,500.00 swing set was for Junior, not the kids.

Sheila, in almost every instance I am right there with you, but I thought the shot on Harper was a bit out of line.

Why?

Because one can always find something in retrospect what someone should have done.

Even on Harper’s worst days he was infinitely better than Justin is on his best days.

I find that there a lot of people here on this website, Rebel staff and viewers alike, that love the to blame Harper for the things Trudeau is doing now.

Well, Trudeau could not have done … if Harper had just done …

apparently “canadians” don’t mind.
also, have a look at this: also , go to spencerfernando.com and read this: DECEPTION: Growing Evidence Justin Trudeau Is Misleading Canadians About Trade War For His Selfish Political Gain

Gee, BIG SHOCK!! I knew this even as trudeau was “wining and dining Trump” after all trudeau has done NOTHING FOR CANADA OR CANADIANS AND HAS SPEWED NOTHING BUT HATE, DISDAIN AND CONTEMPT FOR TRUMP SINCE HE TOOK OFFICE. Which in all fairness is because even trudeau KNOWS TRUMP IS A SUPERIOR LEADER AND HE IS A LOSER, COWARD, THIEF, LIAR, TRAITOR, RACIST, ANTI CANADIAN AND A PSCHOPATH AS IS BUTTS- BOTH OF WHOM SHOULD BE HANGING BY THEIR NECKS FROM THE TOP OF THE FLAG POLE ON PARLIAMENT HOUSE!
