WASTE: Environment Canada Spends Taxpayer Money On Expensive Mercedes, Porsche, Lexus & Tesla Vehicles

Total contempt for Canadian taxpayer dollars.

It appears that an access to information request from Conservative MP Tom Lukiwski has revealed the Trudeau government wasting hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars buying expensive luxury vehicles.

There have been numerous tweets about the information, including a government document dated September 19, 2016:

It seems that Blacklocks – an organization that provides strong in-depth information on what’s happening in Ottawa – took a lead role in finding the info:

A larger photo of the document is included below:

The documents appear to be legit, and Environment Minister Catherine McKenna responded on twitter, showing the government is worried:

Of course, McKenna’s response doesn’t hold up at all, and doesn’t explain why the Trudeau government is wasting our money on expensive luxury cars.

After all, it would be very simple for the government to send inspectors to oversee tests at specific manufacturers as opposed to buying the vehicles at such big expense to taxpayers.

Yet, the Trudeau government clearly doesn’t give a sh*t about taxpayer money, which is why they throw our money away like there’s no tomorrow. They have total contempt for the Canadian people.

You might want to educate yourself in how these Teslas are produced, it take a lot of not so environmentally friendly products and energy. As for no fuel?? Electricity is a fuel that for all you know could be using fossil fuels or nuclear means to produce said electricity. So you should really think before you speak next time.

Realist, unless environment Canadas mandate has changed , they do not test product for upstream or downstream pollution (even though the Liberals imposed this on Trans Canada East). It this were so they would be obligated to test a litany of product including every television, computer and electronic object being imported into Canada.The printed circuit boards alone are stuffed with numerous toxins. And since 85% of Canadas energy is already derived from clean sources ,mainly electricity your point is mute. That Tesla does not need testing and the other autos new or used d’ont need testing either since America and… Read more »

Even if it were true, that they bought these cars to document emissions,why would they buy a Tesla S Model, which is 100% electric and doesn’t have exhaust?

I think that these cars were bought in some kind of scheme where they get to use them as a perk with the premise that they are studying the emissions or bio impact, then sold off at a low price to those that wanted them after the initial gig was up.

Will the ministers or minions be driving them. Will they then be able to purchase them. I have never seen a luxury vehicle on the disposal list of Crown Assets.
