It sure does pay to be friends with Justin Trudeau, doesn’t it?
Want proof? Here it is…
Rana Sarkar, a former Liberal candidate, and friend of the Prime Minister’s top aide, Gerald Butts, has just been handed a premium diplomatic post in San Francisco – at nearly twice the “official salary rate”, and, according to CTV, makes him “one of the highest-paid Canadian diplomats.
That’s right, when it comes to Justin Trudeau helping out his friends, the rules really don’t matter – especially when Canadian tax payers pick up the tab.
Typically, the salary range for this position begins at $119,600 – however, Mr. Sarkar can expect to make up to $260,300 in his plum posting.
We’re sure the Liberals will make excuses. They say Mr. Sarkar can’t be expected to live on a paltry 120K – despite perks of the job that include “regular trips” to Hawaii and a “five-bedroom house” in San Francisco, “worth millions.”
This is just the latest in a long list of questionable spending by Justin Trudeau…
One of my best friends that runs a political advocacy group needs cash? No problem!
My staff have over $220,000 in moving expenses? All good!
Wanna come to the Bahamas for free? Well, Canadians can pick up the $130,000 tab!
Want to live in California, travel to Hawaii, get a free house and get paid double what anyone else in that job would make? It’s on me — well, the taxpayer, actually.
It’s clear Justin Trudeau cares more about looking after those closest to him than he does about looking after the needs of every day hard working Canadians.
