Erin O'Toole called for an independent investigation by a new "anti-corruption" committee into the WE Charity scandal, something the Liberals say could spark an election.

"After a prorogation, after relentless filibusters, piles on piles of delay and political games, and now, the Liberals are threatening an election in the middle of a pandemic to avoid any further scrutiny," said O'Toole.

O'Toole called the situation a "desperate cover-up," saying that the Conservatives will be introducing a motion to establish a committee to look into "the various ethical problems has in the handing out of COVID-19 contracts to close friends and family members."

"A special committee with a dedicated mandate needs to be established... and will examine and review the Canada service grant, the relationships between the WE Charity and the Liberal government and their families, the lobbying efforts for amendments to the income tax act in respect to the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy program, the acquisition, purchase, and approval of Baylis Medical Company ventilators, and topics other house committees related to" the Liberal Party's actions.

O'Toole said the committee's work would be supported by the disclosure of still-unprovided documents from the Liberal Party.

Yesterday, the Liberal House Leader Pablo Rodriguez was vague on whether or not an election would be triggered if the anti-corruption committee is put into motion, calling the proposal "ultra-partisan" and "irresponsible."

"When you're asking the government to concentrate all their efforts on what is requested by this committee instead of fighting the pandemic, or instead of being there for Canadian households, we think that it’s extremely irresponsible," said Liberal House Leader Pablo Rodriguez.

Rodriguez said the motion "sends a message saying that they don't have confidence in the government."

"The Bloc Québécois supports the motion, while the NDP has not made a final decision on the matter and continues to negotiate with the Liberals," reports the National Post.
