Are you kidding me??? $2.3-million in ministerial photographs is insane and instead of the liberals saying that it won’t happen again, all they do is point the finger across the floor and say “Ya, but you were worse”. Many past and present politician need to be fired at minimum and perhaps even go to jail for the way they give your money to their friends and supporters. THIS NEEDS TO END.
There has never been a more important time in history to form a new political party and put them in change of this great country than NOW. Contact the CVP and get involved.
In response to last week’s Conservative accusations of Liberal cabinet ministers’ excessive spending, the Prime Minister’s Office has fired back with a reminder of how former Conservative ministers spent public money.
Cameron Ahmad, one of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s (Papineau, Que.) press secretaries, provided The Hill Times with a list of photography-related costs incurred by some cabinet members in Stephen Harper’s government that the Liberals collected in opposition via order-paper questions.
Jason Kenney (Calgary Midnapore, Alta.) topped the list at a whopping $371,389.84, followed by Gerry Ritz (Battlefords-Lloydminster, Sask.) at $108,992.55, Tony Clement (Parry Sound-Muskoka, Ont.) at $68,055.00, Steven Blaney (Bellechasse-Les Etchemins-Lévis, Que.) at $53,115.00, and Rona Ambrose (Sturgeon River-Parkland, Alta.) at $42,587.00. These are expenses accumulated during the time of the Harper government between 2006 and 2015, though it applies to between 2011 and 2014 for Ms. Ambrose.
In early 2015, iPolitics reported that the previous Conservative government had spent $2.3-million in ministerial photographs since taking power in 2006.
