Papa Trudeau the Pool , Baby Trudeau——?
In my second book( ‘Some Day the Sun Will Shine And Have Not Will Be No More ‘) I referenced Papa Pierre Eliot Trudeau and the swimming pool at 24 Sussex Drive, the Prime Minister’s residence . The pool was paid for by anonymous donors . Not a nice thing. It was rumoured that one Bill Teron , a real estate developer and friend of the Prime Minister was in on the pool financing. In any case Mr. Teron ended up as President of CMHC , a federal housing agency.
Now we have Baby Trudeau. And he has his paws in 24 Sussex Drive, too. To the tune of——–according to’ ipolitics ‘ —$38 million.
These guys were never good at math . No one knows the true cost of Papa’s pool ( the estimates and rumours are $200,000 in 1975) or who financed it . And Baby Trudeau said the renovations would cost $10 million.
This baby boy likes triples and quadruples doesn’t he?
This past budget deficit was to be $10 Billion, now $30 Billion.
The renovations to cost $10 million, now $38 million.
I didn’t know of many swamps , as the Trump Americans call Washington .
In Newfoundland we have what we called bogs.
How one got transported to Ottawa is a mystery.
