The scandal surrounding the WE Organization was already looking terrible for Justin Trudeau, however, now it's beginning to look fatal for the government.
Almost immediately, from the time the government announced the nearly $1 billion contract, things started going downhill. First, there were questions about why the contract would go to a charity so closely-connected to Trudeau and his family.
These reports alerted nearly every journalist in Canada to the cronyism going on at the heart of government. Nearly every hour, new revelations emerge over the WE Chairty's connection to the Liberal Party and how government ministers failed to recuse themselves from this cabinet decision.
Justin Trudeau—as we're sure you aware—has a very cosy relationship with the WE Charity and their co-founders. Trudeau has hosted multiple events for the charity, even when he held elected office.
He has a close family connection with the WE Charity, with his wife, brother, and mother all receiving honorariums for their appearances at WE events.
Two weeks ago, Trudeau attempted to award a $912 million dollar contract to the WE Charity but cancelled his plans soon after the media began to scrutinize the contract and his ties to the charity.
Like Trudeau, the prime minister's minister of finance has family connections to the WE Charity. One of Morneau’s daughter spoke at a WE Day event and her book was endorsed by Marc Kielburger.
Another daughter of Morneau also works for the WE Charity as a paid employee.
Previously, Bill Morneau announced $3 million in federal funding to WE for its “social entrepreneurs” program.
Trudeau’s wife, sophie, has made paid appearances at WE events—earning $1,400.
She also co-hosts the weekly “WE-Wellness podcast” with the WE Charity founder’s wife, Leysa Cerswell. Nothing to see here, folks!
Trudeau’s former Principal Secretary and best friend has been listed as an "outstanding partner and supporter," whatever that means.
So far, it is unclear whether Butts worked for the WE Charity in any capacity.
Trudeau’s Minister of Natural Resources also (surprise, surprise) worked with the WE charity. In a Post Millennial exclusive, O'Regan was shown to have been the Honorary Chair of Artbound, a charity that fundraise on behalf of WE.
O'Regan did not respond The Post Millennial's questions over whether he recused himself from the cabinet's decision to award WE the $900 million contract, or whether he received money from the WE Charity.
Trudeau’s Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages attended multiple WE events. Again, it is unclear whether Joly received a speaking fee.
The chief of staff to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau co-founded the charity O’regan chaired. Telford told The Post Millennial that she did not receive any money from the WE Charity.
Justin Trudeau's brother received $32,000 from WE for 8 speaking events. God know how he managed all that work! Despite all this, Trudeau failed—it seems—to recuse himself from the WE Charity contract decision.
Trudeau's mom received $250,000 from WE for speaking at 28 events. Having said this, the WE Charity initially denied that she had received any fee whatsoever.
As a result of this, no one really knows the extent of the cronyism here. Whatever the case, The Post Millennial will keep you updated as more information comes out.
