According to a report by Sheila Gunn Reid, Justin Trudeau spent upwards to $348,000 on food and alcohol in a period encompassing five flights.

The total cost was discovered through an order paper filed by Conservative MP Bev Shipley. In the order, the MP asks for the federal government to provide information on  the cost of alcohol and food purchased on government owned Airbus and Challenger aircraft.

In another instance, during Trudeau’s controversial G20 trip to Argentina, the flight rang up $103,393.57 on a food bill and $923.00 for 57 bottles of wine and 38 cans of beer.

While the report counted for costs and destinations, it did not include the number of passengers serviced on the aircraft.
