    Not much point in virtue signaling with taxpayers’ money if you don’t have photos to show how virtuous you are.

      Ha! Move along; this is not the climate change we want you change the climate about.

        Yes. Very Ministerial. Not at all like a 14 year old snapchatting her BFF. OMG!

      Since the entire affair was nothing more than a photo op, there’s no point skimping on the photo part of it!

    Small time crooked federal liberals have nothing on the organized crime of the Ontario liberals

      The federal liberals are far from being small time crooks. Give them the same amount of time in office as the Ontario liberals and then we can compare.

    . . . and some of the MSM is STILL bashing poor old Bev Oda over the head for her $16 glass of sunshine and a change of hotels so she could have a smoking room. Looks like chump change when compared to what these little piggies are chomping down on.

      I see a glaring gender imbalance in the last photo. What is Prime Minister substitute teacher planning to correct this injustice?

    It seems that when it comes to profoundly unserious schmoozing, blatant vote whoring, and self indulgence at taxpayers expense, our prominent female Lieberals in cabinet are having no problems keeping up with their more experienced male peers.

      Our ultra-progressive , uber-feminist JUST-IN and his big doll-house on the hill are just starting their shopping spree ………. hold on to your wallet.

      Perhaps we should wait and see how it changes traffic patterns. In the US several trendy light rail initiatives connecting plush white suburbs with their downtown city centres quickly earned the nickname “Housebreakers Express” for their unexpected off peak reverse direction riders.
