Scheer Is A Big Spender

Andrew Scheer led the way among Conservative leadership candidates when it came to spending the most to run his MP office in the first half of the year.

Scheer, a Saskatchewan MP and former Speaker of the House of Commons, spent nearly $263,000 on travel for himself and his family, salaries for employees, accommodation and per diems while in Ottawa, office leases in his riding, and other expenses.

 

Not to be outdone:

Justin Trudeau took a small army of 44 people with him for a three-day visit to Washington last March, at a cost of more than $25,000.

Carry on.
