Wasteful Liberals building “quiet pods” for overpaid bureaucrats

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Watching the Government of Canada Procurement website is a good way to predict what the Liberals are going to do next. You can see purchases they’ve made, and requests for studies and analysis.


It isn’t always a crystal ball, but sometimes, it provides insight into how weird and wasteful the federal government is behind our backs!

And this is one of those times.

The government is looking for tenders from companies to build four phone booths -one for a government office in Manitoba and three for another government office in Newfoundland and Labrador.

But the phone booths they’re looking for aren’t the outdated street corner metal broom closets with corded landlines that no one born in the last two decades knows anything about..

No, these phone booths are called “quiet pods” - like a Kinder Surprise, except the toy inside is a couple of overpaid government workers nattering away in comfortable privacy.

The booths are going to sit inside an office space and can be moved around the building as needed.

Today I’ll tell you exactly how the government wants these weird little safe spaces to look and ask, why can’t the bureaucrats just use a conference room like every other office worker on the planet?

I just spit a drink all over my monitor and keyboard. This is hilarious as well as it is scary.

Do you think these coddled government workers need a structured nap time too!!!!!!

Only the Looney Lieberals would think of some so stupid and wasteful.

I wouldn’t mind these pods if only Liberal twits would just use them to spend their few remaining hours on earth…

Having worked for the feds for 14 years, I know that logic is foreign to bureaucrats. This project sounds like somebody’s attempt to justify their salary.

Andrew the fake PhD Stephenson, we use traditional conference rooms with regular teleconferencing equipment that works very well, with proper lighting, sound, and it saves us a fortune in travel/accomodations etc…. You obviously didn’t read the article, they are not talking about building conference rooms. These are rediculously pricey toys for government that no one in the private sector would justify. You are a fool.

I don’t have any issue with special teleconference infrastructure. Traditional conference rooms are best for in-person meetings (which… may require flights/accomodations/per diems etc) and adding teleconference infrastructure to it is pretty dodgy at times. Sometimes it’s great, other times you spend the whole time fighting poor acoustics or lighting. I’m sure the Rebel has actual studios… for exactly the same reason, when they could just use their computer’s webcams and home offices, in the amateur hour skype style that is the bane of working from home types. Actual business can and does invest in proper equipment so it can operate.

This strikes me as one of those fabricated scandals, much like that shuttle bus that they criticized the Libs for, even though they were merely renewing something that had been started years before by a different government.

Space Moose,
It is TOO LATE now!
He and the rest of them all have TOO MUCH POWER and we AREN’T GOING TO HAVE THE POWER TO VOTE THEM OUT!
Canada is done as are we!
we are under a despot, they are ALL TRASH, ANTI CANADIAN, LYING THIEVING ,RACIST CONTROL FREAKS (and I include EVERY POLITICIAN, POLITICAL PARTY AND GOVERNMENT IN THE LAND now!!) and we are being BANKRUPTED, CONTROLLED AND SILENCED as they all take upon themselves TOO MUCH POWER.

Also, isn’t it interesting to note that we CANADIANS no longer have ANY FREEDOM OR PRIVACY as trudeau is policing our internet chatter, policing our comments/controlling our freedom of speech, is controlling all the media so we soon will have no idea what is going on around the globe or even here in canukistan- other than what HE WILL ALLOW US TO KNOW AND THEM TO TELL US!
lol, I guess he got it right when he decided we are WORTHLESS AND NEED TO BE COMPLETELY CONTROLLED BY HIM ( who doesn’t have enough brain cells to tie his own shoe laces)!!
EVERY LAW ENFORCEMENT, RCMP INCLUDED, PARLIAMENTARY POLICE, OPPOSITION, COURT , JUDGE AND SO ON IN THE LAND IS AFRAID OF HIM and apparently so too are canuks!!!
Life from here on isn’t going to be worth living for canuks BECAUSE YOU ALL ALLOWED THIS!!

This waste of money needs to be turned into an election attack ad.
commented 2018-12-08 12:24:23 -0500
I keep saying over and over and over again: SHUT OFF THE TAPS, PULL YOUR MONEY FROM THE BANKS AND SHUT DOWN CANADA (only a week or so to start) and THAT WILL BRING IT ALL TO AN IMMEDIATE HALT!
But good old canuks can’t /won’t do this because : ‘oh, I’ll end up in jail", or, “I will lose my house”, or, " I’ll be charged" and so on and so on and so on.
Well let me tell you this, IF YOU CONTINUE TO PAY FOR, REWARD, REMAIN APATHETIC, SILENT AND ALLOW THIS TO GO ON MUCH LONGER, NONE OF US ARE GOING TO HAVE A THING BECAUSE THIS TYRANNICAL, LYING, THIEVING, ANTI CANADIAN, RACIST ISLAMIC REGIME IS KILLING CANADA, BANKRUPTING US, CANADA WHILE EMPOWERING THEMSELVES MORE AND MORE AND MOREAND, TAKING AWAY OUR FREEDOMS, JOBS, SHUTTING DOWN OUR RESOURCES AND SELLING OFF OTHERS PLUS CHASING WHAT LITTLE IS LEFT OF OUR INDUSTRY AND ALL FOREIGN/CANADIAN INVESTMENT OUT OF CANADA (now a POST NATIONAL, BORDER-LESS, LAWLESS, LEADERLESS SEWER) AND WE ARE ALL GOING TO BE IN THE GUTTERS AS THE COVETED NEW "CANADIAN’ ILLEGALS/INVADERS ARE FAR MORE IMPORTANT TO THIS DESPOT THAN WE ARE!
He will get in again next year and then IT IS ALL OVER FOR CANADIANS!
I WARNED AND WARNED AND WARNED ABOUT HIM NOT ONLY BEFORE THE 2015 ELECTION BUT ALL DURING HIS TERM AND HE HAS DONE NOTHING BUT VILIFY WE CANADIANS BOTH HERE AT HOME AND ALL OVER THE GLOBE WHILE INVITING , EMPOWERING AND SERVING , PROTECTING THE ENTIRE ISLAMIC, TERRORIST/ CRIMINAL, PARASITICAL THIRD WORLD IN AND TAKING EVERYTHING WHICH IS OURS AND GIVING IT ALL TO THEM!
Every single government, politician, court, law enforcement and so on in the land now SERVES AND PROTECTS THE INVADERS AND THEMSELVES WITH US PAYING THE BILLS AND MAKING ALL THE SACRIFICES ! THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO FIGHT FOR BECAUSE YOU ALL REFUSED TO PAY ATTENTION AND STOP IT!
CANADA AS A NATION NO LONGER EXISTS! FACT! THEREFORE WHY THE HELL ARE YOU ALL STILL PAYING ALL THE TAXES AND OBEYING ALL TRUDEAUS LAWS??? HE HAS NO POWER BECAUSE CANADA NO LONGER IS A NATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it appears to me canadians are simply TOO DUMB TO LIVE and believe me when I tell you that is EXACTLY WHAT TRUDEAU AND HIS TERRORIST REGIME BELIEVE AS DO ALL THE INVADERS!
No one is coming to save our sorry asses this time! OUR HERO’S ARE GONE AND WE HAVE NO ALLIES BECAUSE TRUDEAU HAS GIVEN THEM ALL THE MIDDLE FINGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Again, GOD HELP YOUR CHILDREN BECAUSE CLEARLY NONE OF YOU CARED ENOUGH TO PROTECT THEM OR THEIR FUTURES!

Its a form of the Orgasmatron from Woody Allen’s film Sleeper. They just aren’t mentioning the vibrating seats, the electronic darkening of the glass, and the aroma therapy function.

Our dollars in acton. This is just like each and every Liberal government of the past 60 years. “Its not our money so lets spend, spend, spend!” Then again, look at Baby Doc Trudeau’s booze spending and private government jetting he just loves since it is at the public purse. (Our trust fund idiot.)

This is merely the sequel to Get Smart.We now have the Cone(heads) of Silence.

Sorry, that’s Liberal Party of Canada Indoctropods ©.
commented 2018-12-07 21:27:08 -0500
In wondering about what these LPC-Indoctopods will actually manifest as, my nerdy culture reaction was visualising;
A Clockwork Orange
1984
THX 1138
Don Knott’s, Get Smart
and anything produced at the CBC
In that order.

Superman (AKA Clark Kent) still needs phone booths. Although government can’t acknowledge it publicly, and thus jeopardize his secret identity, providing change rooms for super heroes is the responsible thing to do.
commented 2018-12-07 19:51:33 -0500
On the positive side, maybe these booths could be turned into iron maidens for bureaucrats.
commented 2018-12-07 19:42:23 -0500
Governments have a real gift for finding the highest price for something and then overpaying that price, especially the Liberals.
commented 2018-12-07 19:40:59 -0500
Well, whatever we calculate the cost to be for one of these “phone booths” to be (aiming to the high side), multiply that by at least 10.
commented 2018-12-07 19:19:37 -0500
Wonder how much these little goof off holes cost? Give them a few months and there will be one in every government office everywhere. Bet they have exhaust systems for weed smokers.
