UPDATE: Feds explain why pricey electric car chargers are “collecting dust” (sort of)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


I have an update to bring you about our investigation into the usage of the federal government’s electric car charging stations.

An order paper question by CPC MP Ed Fast asked the government about their federal fleet of electric car chargers wanting to know where the chargers were, what Ministries were responsible for them, how much they cost and how often they were being used every month.

In the dump of information he received, I noticed two ministries — Environment and Climate Change and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans — had built car chargers only to never use them at all.

I asked both ministries for more information about these dormant, albeit expensive, chargers to try to find out why they weren't they being used.

Watch my video to see which ministry responded, which one stonewalled my request for clarity, and the hilarious excuse given for not using the chargers.

The same week I went looking for a simple explanation about car chargers, Canada's information watchdog, Suzanne Legault, blasted the Liberals on her way out the door.

In her last week, she accused the Liberal government of reneging on its promise to bring openness to Ottawa and accused them of violating Canadians’ charter rights by prohibiting quick and easy access to Federal documents and data.

I suspect the era of mainstream journalists caring about government withholding public information will soon come to a quiet end since the Liberals are proposing plans to bail out failing media companies, making each one of them beholden to the Liberals for their own survival.

But not at the Rebel. We'll keep asking the government the questions nobody else will.

- This is the perfect image for the Trudeau Liberals. Failed green scams costing a fortune so they can have photo-ops. In the end achieving nothing of value.

Nice picture of Climate Barbie filling up her car with electricity, I hope she did not ‘top’ it off and cause a ‘spill’.
This picture enforces the saying, “you can’t fix stupid”.

Please can we stop calling them the MSM Main Stream Media . The entire media is leftist socialist and now that they are taking money from Trudeau to spew his propoganda we can call them out for taking our tax dollars to convert into lies.

A nation of sheep soon begets a government of wolves .

The price of electricity in Ontario will be more than the price of gas… Who can afford to run an electric car on blue collar wages.!!

John Zealand that picture was hilarious, i doubt she even knows how ignorant it made her out to be.
