Ford government refuses to renew contract with disgraced WE charity
The Ford government has instructed the Ontario Ministry of Education to sever future contracts with the disgraced WE Charity group.
At least 180 workers were paid by an anonymous employer to promote positive stories about WE Charity in 2018 and 2019 and manipulate Google’s search algorithm. The campaign attempted to surface positive visibility and drown any negative coverage.
The WE Charity has been accused by a witness in the Finance Committee of transferring personal data to the Liberal Party before the 2015 election.
Conservative leader Andrew Scheer will request an emergency debate on the prime minister's WE scandal in the House of Commons today.
