WE CHARITY: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Bill Morneau under fire as WE Charity controversy deepens
Canadian politics usually pale in comparison to our cousins to the south, but there are a couple of major ethics issues happening in Ottawa that have caught fire – yet again – specifically the WE Charity scandal, and the investigation into the alleged mistreatment of several employees by Governor General Julie Payette.
While the facts will be coming out on both issues over the days and weeks ahead; and as the Kielburger brothers are grilled by the Finance Committee for four hours today (July 28), along with the WE Charity’s former Board Chair, Michelle Douglas, who resigned back in March due to “concerning developments” at the charity, it certainly would seem that the money for “WE” was decided not by “US,” or the people who are voted to represent us, but by only a few politicians.
