Governor General’s office won’t reveal individual menu items on $100K catering bill

By Cosmin Dzsurdzsa

Conservatives are demanding the Liberal government disclose the cost of individual menu items after an international trip by Governor General Mary Simon racked up a $100,000 catering bill.

According to Blacklock’s Reporter, expense records show that Simon’s staff dined on $218 per plate for breakfast, lunch and dinner courses.

“We’d like to know whether we are dealing with caviar and champagne. What kind of meals are we talking about here?” asked Conservative MP Pierre Paul-Hus.

Flight records from the government’s Dubai trip revealed that Simon’s junket billed taxpayers $80,367 in food costs alone.

“If you divide that by 46 people you get $1,744 per person or $218 per meal which includes breakfast,” said Liberal MP Anthony Housefather.

“Did anybody look at the price and say, ‘Oh my God, this is an astronomically high price for this small number of meals’?”
