Canada hasn't decided if it would cover security costs for Prince Harry and Meghan

Finance Minister Bill Morneau said the federal government hasn't decided if Canada would help to cover the security costs.

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister's Office declined to comment.

Sources claim Justin Trudeau has told the Queen already that Canada will cover the costs.

The cost of protecting H&M has been pegged at $1.7 million a year.

They're quick to drop the website but they're dragging their feet on updating the funding section...
You know know why, LoL.
however there are definitely canadians that would be ok with this because they would be so excited that celebrities ~chose us
Every country has them super ignorant folks (and Ontario elected one to boot lol)
That's the thing, as a Canadian, I honestly feel that more Canadians don't mind this than do.

And to be honest, I think most Canadians are apathetic about this issue. Like the government has been spending money stupid shit all the time, like a pipeline, this will seem like the least of most concerns.

I don't know, I feel that this will largely be a non-issue for most
apathetic is our default setting but especially in the middle of winter. they picked a good time for this lol

depends on where you go I guess.
in a province like Alberta,where employment is low and province is broke, people would probably object to having to pay their tax money to these two privileged celebs.
Toronto/Vancouver is probably stoked, especially if they're living near there
No one's asking Saskatchewan

I also think people forget we pay for a bunch of shit because of being part of the commonwealth- like we pay the GG $$ just to be a figurehead and I guess the same is for provinces?

Theu will find ways to justify the costs and hide it in the budget.
As a typically apathetic Canadian, this would have me STEAMED if it becomes reality.

That much money going annually towards the existence of 3 super rich non-citizens who don't even need to live here? fuck that, notonmywatch.gif

I might feel slightly less annoyed if they were born Canadian citizens but they're not soooo.
uh, so these people are so special that instead of paying to protect themselves the country they are CHOOSING to live in has to do it? Yikes, how embarrassing tbh.
I vote NO but I love how all of this is drawing attention to shady royal finances.
The price of having a monarchy in 2020.

Oh well.
Lol, so stupid.
No. They're rich af and are capable of making that money themselves. If we really want to spend that money, use it for homelessness, mental health resources, etc. But we're so apathetic. I've barely heard people around me talk about this M&H saga here -- granted, I don't work w/ boomers, but I feel like everyone's going to shrug and move along.
Can't the Russian Oligarch pay for it?
I would legit be embarrassed to move to a new country and be telling the government "yeah we need you to pay for our security even though we have money." Like, yikes.
i thought they were supposed to be financially independent now so why are canadians gonna foot their security bill????
omg this gif is killing me
wow how did this gifmaker get video of me eating cake?

(lol cries in low carb new year resolution)
This whole thing is so surreal, like just....abdicate? This is a much bigger deal than it needs to be. But then again, I think that's the point.
Yeah. They want to be free but they don't really want to be free. They chose Canada because it's still in the Commonwealth so that would probably soothe granny enough that they could get some costs offset.

He will never be king. Archie will never king. Archie's kids will definitely never be king. Just become a private citizen now and get a bodyguard.
Je m’excuse?? Fuck off lol
