Reality Check: How do Liberals REALLY feel about inappropriate spending by Ministers?

 

When Conservative Ministers got caught in spending scandals, what did Liberal MPs say?

 

- On Bev Oda’s $16 glass of orange juice:

"It reveals a government that's off its game, quite frankly, and taking liberties with the public's patience and the public's purse."

            (Liberal deputy leader Ralph Goodale, Source: Postmedia News, April 23, 2012)

 

- When Conservative Ministers spending on photographers was revealed:

“The money spent by Conservatives on vanity photographers could have kept the Veterans Affairs office in Cape Breton open.”

And:

Why are photos of themselves more important than the Cape Breton veterans?”

(Liberal MP Mark Eyking, Source: iPolitics, February 19, 2015)

 

- When Conservative Ministers’ massive spending on limos and drivers was exposed:

"The government is on a bit of an ego trip."

And:

"They like to have the cars running to make them look like big shots but the taxpayers are paying for it."  

(Liberal MP Mark Eyking, Source: CTV News, May 1, 2012)

 

- On what type of vehicle Conservative Ministers were using:

"They're afraid to roll into Parliament in their black little limos today."

(Liberal MP Scott Andrews, Source: Huffington Post, May 3, 2012)

 

- When Conservatives attempted to use wiggle-words and excuses for to avoid responsibility for these abuses taxpayers dollars:

"Clearly, they were trying to find a way to paper over a pretty serious transgression and they did it in a very sloppy manner,"

(Liberal deputy leader Ralph Goodale, Source: Postmedia News, April 23, 2012)

And:

''The fact of the matter is they're hiding expenses, they got caught and this is something they seem to be doing regularly.''

(Liberal MP Mark Holland, Source: Canadian Press, May 8, 2008)

…Liberal Ministers promised that they would be better than Conservative Ministers.

Canadians deserve better.
