LETTERS: No subsidy

We should be very clear on the financial guidelines for the Prime Minister’s office.

Our new Prime Minister Trudeau has warmed up the climate with public discussion on his five member family with two nannys and their costs to the Canadian taxpayer for care, travel etc.

We should be very clear on the financial guidelines for the Prime Minister’s Office for we live in a very rapidly changing world and do not discriminate (if it’s not too inconvenient).

A future Canadian prime minister may have a girlfriend and seven concubines all with offspring and a network of nannies. This could also be possible with a future Canadian woman prime minister and her seven mancubines, offspring and nannies (as the ancient Queen of Sheba). To support such a future entourage the Canadian taxpayer may have to seek a loan from the International Monetary Fund.

Personally, our home has a sweetie, girlfriend and nanny, all hard-working law-abiding and beautiful, but we have received no subsidy from either PM Harper or PM  Trudeau. Maybe because all are one, in the remarkable Canadian wife.
