It wasn’t just his father’s legacy organization Katimavik that Liberal MP Justin Trudeau was trying to save, it now looks like he was also trying to keep hidden some very questionable hotel, lunch and booze bills:
Before being elected a Liberal MP, Trudeau chaired the charitable youth group Katimavik, which was started by his late father’s Liberal government.
Receipts for a Katimavik retreat at the posh 4 Diamond Loews Concorde hotel in Quebec City show that Trudeau billed double the rate of other Katimavik members.
While some representatives of the group charged just $362 for a two-night stay, Trudeau charged $740. That figure even eclipsed the cost of Katimavik president Jean-Guy Bigeau’s $469 charge for a three-night stay.
Trudeau expensed a $127 lunch for two that included fine brandies and on another occasion he billed $93 for sushi lunch for two.
Other receipts show a taste for the premium Grey Goose vodka.
In 2005, Trudeau charged the taxpayer-funded group for a $350 steak dinner in Halifax.
And to make matters even worse, Trudeau was using the taxpayer-funded group for political purposes:
Board minutes from 2003 show that Trudeau and the executive director of the group planned to meet with the three candidates vying to replace Jean Chretien as leader of the Liberal Party. (see here)
Anyone surprised that this happened when a spoiled rich kid has a taxpayer expense account?
