An unnamed Canadian delegate at the last United Nations Climate Conference booked a $1,822-a night Dubai hotel suite, records show. The delegation led by Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault cost taxpayers more than $1.3 million overall.

“Every conference represents a unique opportunity for humanity to further our climate fight,” Guilbeault said last November 27. “This is the next significant milestone in our collective efforts to advance human security, economic prosperity and the health and well-being of our planet.”

Cabinet yesterday in an Inquiry Of Ministry detailed $1,353,307 in costs for the 633-member Canadian delegation. “The costs incurred do not reflect the final costs,” said the Inquiry. “There are still invoices and claims as well as recoveries between departments that have yet to be processed.”
