Prime Minister Justin P.J. Trudeau private home fundraising on taxpayers dime IS different than the Late President J.F. Kennedy's fundraising in Dallas / Austin

Justin Trudeau just doesn't get it, nor does Christy Clark.  There is no 50/50 split where half of the time they are working for the country, the province.  It appears that all of their time is for their parties re-election chances.

Are Canadians picking up the security tabs for Trudeau's private home fundraising?  Have the individuals been vetted by the PMO?  How much does it cost, the vetting?  Is the amount spent on security equal to, or more, than the sought after fundraising dollars that benefit the Liberal Party of Canada?  Is the private home chat with the Prime Minister done without his RCMP handler(s)?  Are the fund donors patted down for weapons or certification on martial arts death blow?  Has the building been swept with dog sniffer squads for explosives and drugs?  Has the room been checked for bugs and video recording devices?  Have the streets within four city blocks been cleared?  How much is the transportation cavalcade costing?  Is the price for security lower on weekends or more?

As to JFK's demise, he was in town for fundraising:
 ....And while Dallas will be forever linked to Kennedy, Austin was the place for events unfulfilled. Following the stop in Dallas, there was to be a reception for President Kennedy at the Governor's Mansion and a fundraising gala at Austin's Municipal Auditorium. Austin hotels were full of politicos who had poured in from across the state. The decorations were in place and the barbecue was cooking.
Kamloops Fundraising coincides with three BC Liberal Ministers making public / private appearances. 

Taxpayers picked up the tabs for transportation / accommodations / meals

In my opinion the government of the day ought not to be permitting their members to have these types of fund raising events. it ought to be illegal. As you point out the costs of these events are costly for the taxpayer. Its like the tax payer is paying for the government of the day to fund raise and as a voter/taxpayer I resent it. I also don't agree with being able to write off donations to political parties as deductions. Those tax deductions means less money for the public service and some one has to make that up. usually the person who doesn't attend these types of events.

PUT AN END TO PAY TO PLAY. It might not be illegal but it sure as hell is unethical.
