WE Charity has been paid 1.18 $ by the Federal government to organize an event in Ottawa in 2017, during which the mother of Justin Trudeau made a speech.
The organization has been asked to organize this event by prime minister Trudeau and Canadian Heritage, according to an internal memo of WE Charity obtained by the National Post.
The event is billed as ‘a celebration of Canada’s future” on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the country was organized on July 2, 2017, on parliament hill. Margaret Trudeau spoke about mental health, as it has done in the other WE DAY.
“I am so proud to be Canadian, and I am so proud to be a part of WE also “, she had launched entering on stage.
“I love WE because it is neither a political movement nor a religious movement”, she continued.
WE Charity was reported last week to have paid$ 312,000 in seal 28 appearances of Margaret Trudeau, between 2016 and 2020.
In his mea culpa on Monday, Justin Trudeau said that he did not know exactly how much his mother and brother had been paid by WE Charity, but that he was not surprised by this, as they acted as ” professionals “.
“My brother and my mother have worked as professional speakers. I knew that they had worked with various organizations including the organization KINGDOM (WE Charity). I didn’t know how much they had been paid by these agencies but I would have had to know and I regret it”, he said.
The prime minister is in hot water since his government has been granted, without tender, to a contract with a value of $ 19.5 million to WE Charity to manage and distribute $ 900 million in federal grants for the volunteer student.
Although the contract between the organization and the State has been canceled, the case has triggered an investigation by the commissioner of conflict of interest and ethics.
This is the third time that Justin Trudeau is affected by this type of audit, a never-before-seen in the history of the country.
