Justin Trudeau, the ultimate hypocrite on the international stage

By Lorrie Goldstein

Well, ain’t that a beach
Caribbean-loving Trudeau’s carbon footprint on the rise


As for Trudeau’s carbon footprint, Passifiume reported that over the Christmas holiday, two RCAF Challenger jets made four flights ferrying Trudeau and his family back and forth between Ottawa and Costa Rica, where they were on vacation.

Plus, according to local media, Trudeau chartered a private plane to make the 100-kilometre trip from San Jose, Costa Rica’s capital, to Santa Teresa, a popular tourist destination.

Now add that carbon footprint to the one Trudeau accumulated during his 2015 winter family holiday in St. Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean, his infamous 2016 winter vacation on the Aga Khan’s private island in the Bahamas and his frequent trips to far-flung Canadian hot spots for family vacations.

We’re not talking about business travel, that’s part of Trudeau’s job.

This is about voluntary vacation travel, about where Trudeau chooses to go and how he chooses to get there.

The farther you go from home and the more you do it by flying, the bigger your carbon footprint.

Carbon credits are nothing more than papal indulgences.

The only credible way to lower one’s carbon footprint is to consume less, thus lowering one’s use of fossil fuel energy, since almost all goods and services consume fossil fuels.

Trudeau is entitled to vacations. That’s not the issue.

The issue is Trudeau’s carbon tax policies are designed to reduce the carbon footprint of Canadians, which means lowering our standard of living by making fossil fuel energy more expensive.

When Trudeau decrees through government policies that we must consume less, while refusing to do the same when it comes to his lifestyle choices, he’s being a hypocrite.

Leaders lead by example.

Did our self-appointed or secretly funded global climate change accountant, Greta, record the multiple jet and private plane legs involved in our PM’S recent vacation? Did she send him an invoice for “do nothing” carbon offsets? Does the government know there are personal tax implications for relatives and non-essential people travelling on these trips? Just sayin’. At least our PM got his picture at a Costa Rica restaurant published.
