Canadian Taxpayers forked out around $67,000 on security for the single day he met with former hostage Joshua Boyle on December 18, 2016.
A report from La Presse says Justin Trudeau’s security detail costs around $2 million per month, which translates to just under $67,000 per day.
But apparently Trudeau’s security detail didn’t know that Joshua Boyle was under investigation during their meeting.
“We make sure that we follow all the advice that our security professionals and intelligence agencies give us and that’s exactly what we did in this case,” Trudeau said in the aftermath.
But would Trudeau’s security detail allow him to meet with someone under investigation for serious crimes? I don’t think so, especially since Boyle has ties to terrorism.
It makes you wonder how safe Canada really is.
Boyle was briefly married to convicted terrorist Omar Khadr’s sister, a sister who is actively promoting terrorism and Sharia Law.
The 34-year-old Joshua Boyle faced 15 criminal charges, he was arresting in New Years day.
He is charged with the following:
- Eight counts of assault.
- Two counts of sexual assault.
- Two counts of unlawful confinement.
- One count of uttering threats.
- One count of public mischief (misleading a police officer into believing that someone was suicidal and missing, causing the officer to start an investigation, and thereby diverting suspicion away from Boyle).
- One count of administering a noxious substance (the antidepressant Trazodone).
Trudeau continues to remain silent on the issue, the visit should have never happened, what a waste of $67,000.
