Trudeau ran up $28,000 in electricity bills at Harrington Lake in just six months

Exclusive access to information documents obtained from the National Capital Commission have revealed the expensive upgrades and over the top utility bills paid for Trudeau's Harrington Lake retreat.

The property at Harrington Lake, exclusively used by the Prime Minister and his family, is undergoing a nearly $9 million renovation upgrade.

Fourteen pages outlining the revamp costs reveal a bill for a bedroom conversion totalling $378,711, and photography expenses of nearly $6,000.

In 2017, Justin Trudeau sparked outrage in the Western provinces when he told a Peterborough, Ontario town hall that he had plans to end the oil and gas industry.

“We can't shut down the oil sands tomorrow. We need to phase them out,” he said. “We need to manage the transition off of our dependence on fossil fuels.”

Ironically, however, the documents show $28,629 in electricity charges during the 6 months between October 2019 and March 2020. Four months were in excess of $5,000.

Furnace oil for the on-site generator during the same time frame exceeded $18,000.
