General Andrew Leslie's Moving Expenses
How can someone spend over $70,000 to move just a few minutes away? Did Andrew Leslie use a Lamborghini to tow the moving trailer? In an economy when many are struggling to make ends meet, when young people are struggling to find jobs, this guy can charge over $70,000 for moving expenses? Really?
I think it is important to support our veterans, but this program should have caps on how much can be claimed. Really, for a move of such a short distance, it is hard to imagine how it could cost anywhere near $70,000.
What is especially baffling in all this, why are Liberals defending General Leslie? Makes no sense. This is a clear abuse of a government program. Even if he was supposed to be a star Liberal candidate, this shows he's a deeply tainted star. Liberals shouldn't be defending him, especially as Justin Trudeau wants to present a new Liberal Party with a new kind of politics. Recommend this post
