Canadians pay more than $30 million a year, which works out to $82,191.78 each day or $2.7 million each month, to keep Prime Minister Justin Trudeau safe. The cost has sharply increased since 2021 and is higher than it’s been in 20 years, an unprecedented 32.3% increase, according to the CBC.Trudeau and his family, including as of late his estranged wife Sophie, her new partner and his kids, are protected by the RCMP. The two announced their separation in August 2023, and it was revealed on Tuesday Sophie has already established a new domestic partnership with Ottawa Dr. Marcos Bettolli, who is currently going through a divorce. The soon-to-be former Mrs. Bettolli has expressed security concerns over her children now that her husband is romantically involved with the prime minister’s wife. Now the CBC has published unflattering numbers reflecting the security costs of the Trudeau clan.For two fiscal years in a row, security for the PM cost more than $30 million annually — compared to $10.4 million ($15.9 with inflation) for his predecessors Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin. Stephen Harper’s security cost $10.5 million each year until his final year, where it increased to $23 million.RCMP Sgt. Kim Chamberland said there are a number of factors that influenced the increase in security, including ramping up the number of RCMP units protecting not just the PM, but members of his cabinet as well. Wages for RCMP officers have increased, as has Trudeau’s mobility since the pandemic. "Security costs can vary depending on many different factors," said Chamberland. "These include domestic and global threat risk, the number of people travelling, the level of activity, the number of locations attended, type and number of political obligations, as well as technological advancements and elements dictated by economic factors such as cost of travel, accommodations and fuel."Chamberland also noted Trudeau's international vacations drive up the cost of the RCMP bill to protect him, citing his Montana holiday was more costly for Canadian taxpayers than was initially forecast. The Easter weekend family getaway cost $228,000 — $205,000 of that went to the RCMP for security.
