Reactions as General Governor, Mary Simon, spent $71,000 in limo fees for 4 days Iceland trip in 2022

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Reactions as General Governor, Mary Simon, spent $71,000 in limo fees for 4 days Iceland trip in 2022.

Reactions below:

Michael: $71,000 could change a Canadian family’s life.
Mary Simon blew that on limo services for 4 days in Iceland.
Where do you need to even take a limo to in Iceland? A volcano?
This Government is so out of touch with reality it’s astonishing.

Angel: She's very stupid. 

Obtained via access to information requests by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, expense reports from Gov. Gen. Mary Simon’s October 2022 working visit to Iceland list five separate line items for Icelimo Luxury Travel, a limousine and transportation firm based outside of Reykjav√≠k.

Four of the charges were listed in the expense report as “GG VISIT TRANSPORTATION SERVICES,” totalling $64,799.57, payable to “Icelimo.”

A fifth charge to Icelimo, for an Aug. 29 to Sept. 1 advance visit, was for $6,474.08.

Icelimo’s website describes the company as “pioneers” in luxury travel and transportation in Iceland, offering VIP transportation private jet transfers, as well as private day tours.

Franco Terrazzano, federal director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, told the National Post that spending more than the national average income on limousine services is shocking, considering Canada’s current cost-of-living crisis.

Last month Governor General Mary Simon awarded KD Lang Canada's highest Honor for the performing arts.

And of course KD made it one of the most memorable award ceremonies EVER just being KD. 

Today in 2021, Prime Minister Trudeau announced that Queen Elizabeth II had appointed Mary Simon as Canada’s first indigenous Governor General. “My appointment is a historic moment for Canada & an important step on the long path towards reconciliation,” said Simon.
