The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has announced that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be appearing to the Finance Committee on Thursday, along with Chief of Staff Katy Telford.
Last week, Finance Minister Bill Morneau testified to the Committee on Finance, revealing that he wrote the WE Charity a cheque for $41,366 to reimburse expenses from family vacations to both Kenya and Ecuador.
The payment was made just a day before Morneau was to testify to the committee.
Trudeau ordered to appear
Last Wednesday, the ethics committee commanded—by a 6-5 vote—that Trudeau should appear in front of the committee. They will also receive records of speaking fees paid to Trudeau and his family.
The motion was presented by the Conservative Party and supported by the separatist Bloc Quebecois and the New Democrats, according to Blacklock's Reporter.
