Canadian Politician "Lists" Her House on Airbnb To Help Canada's Deficit

Rona Ambrose, leader of the Conservative Party and Leader of the Official Opposition in Canada, "listed" her official residence in Ottawa on the site Airbnb to "help" pay off the massive deficit the country has accrued since electing the Liberal Party and Justin Trudeau into power.

And here's the "listing," from Ambrose's Facebook page. The room will be available for $24.9 billion CAD per night. To pass the time, Ambrose suggests reading about how the Liberal's budget will include tax hikes.

Just listed my official residence on Airbnb. Book your room rental at Stornoway now for your next visit to Ottawa!

While this is a pretty clever joke, what's not so fun is how the Canadian economy has plummeted in recent months.
