Yesterday I wrote about how Rona Ambrose and her Cons were going after the decent Health Minister Jane Philpott for having rented a
Instead of taking a taxi or a bus.
As well as going after the equally decent Environment Minister Katherine McKenna, for the "crime" of having spent about $6,000 on photographs at the Paris climate summit.
Even though the Harper regime spent millions doing the same thing.
But what makes this grotesque assault even more disgusting is the way the Con media are trying to make it look like a major scandal.
With the Con stooges at Postmedia sucking and blowing like only they can.
David Akin trying to claim that Stephen Harper never wasted the taxpayer's money.
Say what you want about Stephen Harper but he ran a penny-pinching shop. Among all the nasty things I heard about Harper as I cross-crossed the country during last year’s election, I never heard anyone suggesting the Harper Conservatives had developed a fondness for taxpayer-funded luxury during their decade in office.
As former top Harper aide Dan Robertson said yesterday, entitlement is like kryptonite to the Liberals. It will be the thing that one day — maybe not now but someday — has the potential to do them in.
Even though no government in Canadian history spent more time and more money wallowing at the trough...
While Anthony Furey repeated the same absurd story.
So much for doing politics differently. It looks like the Justin Trudeau Liberals are just as entitled to their entitlements as those who came before them.
Or the same wishful thinking.
The Liberals have clearly mastered Marshall McLuhan's rule that the medium is the message. They've got the whole image thing figured out. Fresh Nanos Research data released Tuesday confirms as much, showing the PM is still immensely popular.
However these expense stories are putting small cracks in the Liberals' image. If hardworking Canadians see more stories about their money being frittered away, they're going to have serious doubts that Trudeau stands for "real change" after all.
And Andrew Coyne twisted himself into a knot of distorted logic claiming that little means BIG.
It is quite possible to be disgusted by the little bits of waste without losing sight of the large. Small things can be indicative. The person who is rude to waiters may well be capable of much worse.
While mocking the Globe editorial board for calling the non scandal nothing but pettiness.
Inevitably, there is a Globe and Mail editorial, huffing at Canadians’ crabby refusal to maintain their officials in a style befitting a G7 country. This week’s installment did not disappoint. “We have to stop demanding that our cabinet ministers book the middle seat in economy,” the paper advised, “or bed down at discount hotels.” Oh? Why, exactly?
Even though the Globe is right, and Coyne is the last person to demand austerity having attended the Bilderberg conference.
Where the rich pleasure each other.
The poor aren't invited...
And Coyne like all the other Postmedia stooges is just trying to please his boss Paul Godfrey...
And begging pathetically for his job....
And the good news?
The Con media can't rewrite history.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government has spent more than $2.3 million to photograph Conservative cabinet ministers since it came to power, iPolitics has learned.
Taxpayers are picking up the tab for a quarter of a million dollars on average each year to hire photographers to take pictures of ministers making announcements. Since 2006, the government has commissioned outside photographers to record more than 2,483 events.
There was no worst offender than the depraved Stephen Harper...
While past prime ministers have generally had a single official photographer, Harper currently has three.
“This is the most narcissistic prime minister and narcissistic government that Canada has ever, ever had,” said Liberal MP Frank Valeriote, who had submitted the question that led to the spending being revealed.
Postmedia will go down long before the Liberals do...
And if the scummy Ambrose Cons think they can use their bought media to do their dirty work.
They will share the same fate...
For they are the worst and grubbiest party this country has ever known.
Canadians know scumbags when they see them.
We shot those bullies down in flames in the last election.
Now let's make sure they never return...
