Arrogance and elitism in the federal government continues to cost the Canadian People.
While the Trudeau government tells Canadians to tighten our belts and imposes a hated carbon tax that takes money out of our pockets, Justin’s cabinet ministers are massively increasing their office spending far above the rate of inflation.
According to the Hill Times, cabinet minister offices increased their spending by 15% in 2017-2018:
“Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains’ office spent the most out of 33 cabinet offices in 2017-18, while the Prime Minister’s Office spent 10 per cent more compared to the previous fiscal year, according to newly released public accounts figures. In total, ministerial offices spent $56,880,614 in the 2017-18 fiscal year, which stretched from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. It accounts for a roughly 15 per cent, or $7.5-million, increase compared to the previous fiscal year, in which cabinet offices spent $49,367,397.”
Among the biggest spenders were the offices of innovation minister Navdeep Bains ($2.26 million), and Bill ‘Moneybags’ Morneau ($2.1 million).
Melanie Joly’s office spent a bunch as well, racking up $1.9 million in bills to the taxpayer.
Additionally, “Spending also went up 10.5 per cent at the PMO, totalling $9,329,478 in 2017-18. It marks an increase of $883,168 compared to 2016-17, when the office spent $8,440,310. Almost $8.2-million was spent on personnel and nearly $1-million was for expenses labelled as transportation and communications.”
This is the arrogant elitism of Trudeau’s globalist mindset. While we pay more in taxes (leaving us with less for our own lives and families), the Trudeau Liberals are increasing their globetrotting and adding to their already-bloated offices – all at our expense.
