Rideau Hall says Gov. Gen. Mary Simon shares the public’s concerns about a $93,000-plus catering bill racked up on a government plane during a work trip in March to the Middle East.
Simon’s office said the Canadian Armed Forces is responsible for the Governor General’s flights during her working visits abroad and is “responsible for all decisions relating to catering on these flights.”
“The Governor General shares the public’s concern in regards to expenses and looks forward to further clarity from responsible departments such as DND and GAC,” wrote Rideau Hall spokesperson Natalie Babin Dufresne in a statement to CBC News.
