Freeland billed taxpayers for private car instead of taking train during climate summit

TNC: 'Instead of taking a $50-a-day train to the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow last year, Liberal finance minister Chrystia Freeland stayed in Edinburgh and billed taxpayers over $3,000 for a private driver to get her to the conference.

'Documents acquired by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) reveal that Freeland employed the luxury car service St Andrews Chauffeurs to shuttle herself, Deputy Minister of Finance Michael Sbia, former policy director Leslie Church and senior communications director Bronwen Jervis to Glasgow.

'The trip between the two cities takes about an hour and a half by car but only 49 minutes by train.'
