    Holy lawd people, this was a personal vacation. It was indirectly on the tax payer's dime, because we do pay his salary after all, but sweet jeebus get a clue. Almost every career in Canada is indirectly funded by tax payer's money. A carpenter who helped build a hospital decided to vacation in Mexico last week. We'd best lynch him along with the PM for spending his income (which originated as tax dollars before being paid to the construction company he works with) as he sees fit. Why not complain about an actual problem? Like the fact that there are still hundreds of kids who go to school hungry every day of the week in NL. Who am I kidding, you'd managed to find a problem with a government funded school breakfast program because tax dollars were involved...

    Oh, to be young and carefree.......with someone else's money.

      And whose money might that be? You Cons are a nasty lot. Your closet-diving hero Harper lost, get over it. Haven't heard anything from him lately, can only assume he's found another closet to hide in.

    Every day I read the news and this guy is some where in the world, other than in Ottawa, doing what he was elected to do, working. It seems like one, long, drawn out family vacation. Let's get to work Justin and start doing the job you were elected to do, running this country to enhance Canadian lives. Vacation is never won a celebrity contest that includes endless travel.

    Well, I see it didn't take long for the low-intellect Conservative nasties to start posting their vitriolic comments about PM Trudeau. Did Steve, the cowardly closet queen, or as the Guardian so aptly referred to him as a 'vacuous, anodyne nothing", ever holiday in NL? Not on your life. He despised NLers. So Fred, Barry and Figgy, get over it. Your hero lost and is finished in this country.

    So happy that our PM decided that the best place to be this Easter time with his lovely family was in our beautiful province. I hope they have an awesome stay full of ice bergs, whales and enjoying the locals! Tourism Newfoundland can't buy this kind of advertising!!

    No Holiday Inn or local B and B for selfie boy hey......nothing but the best for Junior and his family. And his taxpayers funded babysitters.

    Who gave this bozo permission to spend more of my money for the purpose of having vacation time for he, his family and the entourage he always brings with him. He should do the honorable thing and step down as PM of Canada.

      Maybe he is spending his own money bozo. Perhaps you'd rather have Harper as PM.

      Totally agree Barry. I distinctly remember Harper insisting on staying only in YMCA hostels when he went on vacation. And no plane rides for our fave PM, either. He huddled on the side of the highway with his family and waved down a passing van like any true head of state would. Bless him! (I was a little peeved that he was seen eating brand name tv dinners, but I choose to believe he simply got lucky on that morning's dumpster dive.)

    It would be nice if the cost of this stay came out of his own pocket.

      Do you know that he is not? What's your source?
