Trudeau's Spending Priorities Send Too Many Tax Dollars Overseas
$4.3 billion spent outside of the country will buy you a lot of thanks from some organizations such as the UN or from climate change conferences. That type of spending will also earn you a lot of selfies to up your political profile. But in the end it is our taxpayers footing the bill.
Canada's Trudeau seeks to rescue faltering U.N. bid on Africa trip
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau leaves for Africa on Thursday to revive what diplomats say is a faltering bid for a rotating seat on the United Nations Security Council.
Failure to win would be embarrassing for the Liberal Party leader. He came to power in November 2015 promising that “Canada is back” after nine years of a Conservative administration that was often suspicious of the world body and failed to win a council seat in 2010.
“The bid is not going well,” said a diplomatic source with direct knowledge of Canada’s campaign. The source requested anonymity given the sensitivity of the situation.
Canada, Ireland and Norway are vying for two seats that open up in 2021-2022. Voting will be held on June 17.
Trudeau Liberals Spending More Taxpayer Dollars On UN Security Council Bid
They’re hiring ‘trainers’ for Canadian officials at the United Nations – even before they know who wins the seat.
The Trudeau Liberals are spending even more of our taxpayer dollars on the worthless bid for a UN Security Council seat.
According to the CP, the government is going to award a contract valued at $120,000, to hire ‘trainers’ for Canadian personnel at the UN.
The idea is to “address thematic and country priorities of interest to Canada in its preparation for a seat on the council.”
The contract is being awarded to the Security Council Report, an American organization.
Notably, it appears the contract is totally jumping the gun, since Norway and Ireland are also vying for the seat.
California bill would ban stays at Trump hotels for state employees
State lawmakers in California are considering a bill that would prohibit state agencies from spending taxpayer money at any of the hotels owned by President Trump or his family.
The proposal, which was introduced by Democratic state Assemblyman Evan Low, would bar employees of any state agency from spending money at a Trump hotel while traveling for work.
“Public officials, at any level, should not profit off the constituents that they were elected to serve and represent,” Low said in a statement. “No branch of government is above the Constitution, and this legislation will ensure that California taxpayers are not further exploited by Donald Trump’s violations of the emoluments clause.”
