Fisheries under fire for employees’ luxury stay out west
Luxury ocean-side accommodation in B.C.? Sounds nice. But Fisheries Minister Bernadette Jordan found herself in the crosshairs of Conservative MP Kelly McCauley after it was revealed her department spent $115,000 to stay at a luxury resort and spa on one of B.C.’s Gulf Islands last spring, according toBlacklock’s Reporter. On top of that, the stay came at a time when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was urging Canadians to “hunker down” and stay home. “Documents we obtained on sole-sourced COVID spending by the Liberal government show a baffling item,” said McCauley.
