The cars were for the G7 summit…
A new report reveals that the Trudeau government spent $23 million on over 600 cars for the G7 summit, and is now having trouble selling the cars to recoup our taxpayer dollars.
The vehicles were purchased by the RCMP, most of them for ‘motorcades’ for the G7 summit, even though the RCMP should have a massive fleet of such vehicles from the purchases of past decades.
The government is keeping under 10% of the cars.
According to a Postmedia report, “For “motorcade” purposes the government bought 154 Chevrolet Suburbans, 140 Touring-model Chrysler 300s, 109 Toyota Siennas and 28 Dodge Chargers. It acquired 88 Ford Escapes, 43 Mitsubishi Outlanders, 32 Nissan Rogues, 30 Dodge Journeys and seven Ford Explorers for “administrative” reasons. From August through October, the feds recouped about $6.3 million from selling 167 vehicles via a government surplus website, mostly out of Quebec City and Montreal. But the attempt to sell such an unusually large number of vehicles appears to be an uphill battle. In the last two weeks of October alone, almost 40 of the vehicle listings received no bids from potential buyers.”
This is just the latest example of the federal government showing total contempt for Canadian taxpayers, and the G7 has seen massive amounts of money thrown down the drain – under both Liberal & Conservative governments.
When it comes to the cars, some of them only 41km of mileage on them – including Chrysler 300s that cost up to $49,195.
Once again, we see that there’s one set of rules for the government elites – who blow our money on luxury cars, while telling us to tighten our belts while also saying that Veterans are ‘asking for too much.’
After seeing this disgusting waste of money, why should anyone want to pay taxes when our money gets spent so horribly?
