Poilievre SLAMS Trudeau for spending over $220,000 on food alone during 6-day trip to Asia

"Mr. Speaker, with Canadians lined up at the food bank, what's on the menu for this Prime Minister this summer?"

As Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continues to insist that his massive capital gains tax increase from 50 to 66.7 percent will only affect “the wealthiest Canadians,” Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre noted in Question Period Wednesday that Trudeau managed to spend over $220,000 on food alone during a recent excursion to the far East.

Poilievre said Trudeau’s suggestion that the Conservatives are protecting the super-rich is “a little bit rich coming from him, as he raises taxes on single moms for the crime of driving to the grocery store, while he treats himself to a jet-setting experience where the food on the plane of a six-day trip was $220,000: beef brisket, parsley potatoes with truffle oil, beef tenderloin with port wine sauce, braised lamb shanks and even cheesecake with pistachio brittle.”

“Mr. Speaker, with Canadians lined up at the food bank, what's on the menu for this Prime Minister this summer?”

Trudeau countered that Poilievre “continues to use cheap attacks and slogans while he tries to hide from the fact that he is standing with the wealthiest Canadians and against the idea of them paying a little more so that young Canadians can buy a home, so that seniors can get their teeth fixed, so that young families can find a place in childcare.”

Poilievre responded that “there's nothing cheap, Mr. Speaker, about the Prime Minister spending $220,000 for food alone on a six-day jet setting tour for himself, all the while homelessness [is] up 38 percent. Toronto has 256 homeless encampments, where one in 10 people in that city are now eating at food banks.”

“The good news is life was not like this before this prime minister and it won't be like this after he's gone. Can we not have a carbon tax election now to choose the government that will axe the tax, build the homes, fix the budget and stop the crime?”

During a six-day trip in September 2023, Trudeau and his entourage managed to spend more than $223,000 on food catering as the prime minister went to the G-20 summit in India and visited with dignitaries in Singapore and Indonesia, according to recently released documents.

In another Question Period exchange Wednesday, Poilievre referred to Trudeau’s fiscal policies as “wackonomics” and said “the middle class doesn't exist after nine years” of the Trudeau government.
