Trudeau's Department for the Environment has refused to disclose how much money it cost the Canadian taxpayer to send a 277 member delegation to COP26 in Glasgow, according to Blacklock's Reporter.
Canada also sent 17 press advisors and Catherine McKenna, who was Trudeau's former Minister for the Environment before she stepped down as an MP after the election.
The government has not yet said whether McKenna travelled on the taxpayer's tab. "Canada has taken steps to ensure diverse perspectives are reflected in international forums," said a government spokesperson when asked about McKenna's expenses.
In total, 39,509 people from around the world attended COP26. This includes 3,800 members of the media and 14,000 observers. The sheer number of people who attended this conference caused significant traffic in Scotland's second city. These meetings will continue until November 12.
In 2019, Canada sent a delegation that was half the size of this current one to a conference in Madrid, Spain. The total cost of this was $683,278, which included airfare, taxis and chauffeured cars. Despite taking place three years ago, "a number of invoices and claims have yet to be processed."
The Madrid conference was famous for a certain Swedish teenager's "how dare you?" speech. At this event, Greta took a step further, singing "you can shove your climate crisis up your arse."
