It seems that someone named Scott Moe is tied up with WE as well.

He is the premier of one of the western provinces I understand.

Maybe there is something here worth looking into...

Well it looks like the WE charity scandal is blowing up in the faces of the people who promoted it into existence.

Well, no harm done, except to the students who will not be getting the money that was set aside for them

Thank you Mr Scheer and Mr Blancet.

An outstanding bit of politics there.

Closing statement of Criag Kielburger after 4 hours of testimony.

He and his brother and their charity have done wonderful things and should be and are a Canadian success story. It is unfortunate for them that they got in the middle of a political mud fight.

It is even more unfortunate for the students who will not be getting any of that money that was supposed to go to help them.

Why do the Feds need to step in on Provincial matters of assistance?

It's the perfect opportunity for students to "find themselves" and back out of something they flippantly chose before being buried in $80K of debt.

"thousands of dollars of previously undisclosed expenses were paid to the Trudeau family"

I looked into it. Scott Moe is indeed the Premier of one of the Western Provinces (the one that's hard to spell but easy to draw). It appears that opposed to the Morneau's or the Trudeau's, the Moe's paid their own way out of their own pockets on a trip, and where not paid (or their families paid...nod nod wink wink) for their participation in physically helping to build a dormitory at a school. They slept in tents on the ground behind an electric fence (wildlife) instead of the $6,000/night digs 'comped like at a casino' to the Moreau's.

Moe, being the crazy bastard that he is, even consulted with and had the trip cleared by the province’s conflict of interest commissioner BEFORE the trip 'cuz that's the way he rolls.....“There is no conflict here, as has been assessed by the conflict of interest commissioner,” Moe said. “I truly believe there most certainly isn’t. So it’s a very, very different situation than what’s happening at the federal level.

I find it amazing that anyone could have listened to that testimony today and still want to call it a conflict of interest.

But the again I don't think climate change is a hoax or that only white people face discrimination, so I may be biased.

There better be something worse than this going on to justify ****ing all those students out of all that money...

Here's some of their testimony today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqV2Zochodk

Asked a specific question, & give a round-about sort'a non-answer. Asked another specific question, & give another round-about sort'a non-answer. Repeat for four hours and that's about what happened. Even with that, some interesting things where exposed.

So we find out today that Margaret Trudeau was never paid to speak at We Days and we still have people saying she was.

Because nothing matters anymore except attacking your enemies, either real or imagined.

So Margaret Trudeau was paid $312,000.00 plus $167,994.00 in other expenses by WE Charity or WE Charity Foundation for something else then? Is that your point? If it wasn't for speaking engagements now, then what was it for? What are you saying here?

Had you bothered to listen to the testimony today you would have heard - at least ten times - that nobody was or has ever been paid to speak at a WE Day.

I don't expect that will matter to you.

Did Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals give a lucrative contract to a charity that they are close to? The obvious answer is yes, they did. Did the government break the law? That isn’t something the Kielburger brothers were going to answer on Tuesday, nor could they. That is on the government. That doesn’t mean WE’s hands are clean.

The organization was actively lobbying the government for contracts despite not being registered to lobby. They also have plenty to answer for when it comes to hiring the PM’s family to speak and appear at WE Day and other events only after Trudeau won the October 2015 election. How much was she paid, Ms. Margaret Trudeau paid, for speaking before November 2015?” Conservative MP Michael Barrett asked. (Before her boy Justin was first elected to the PMO, that is...)We did not engage her before November 2015,” Marc Kielburger responded.

That answer blew away any claim the Kielburgers made that she was hired because of her advocacy on mental health. Margaret Trudeau’s first book where she opened up on the issue of mental health was published in October 2011, they never hired her then. WE Charity and its affiliated organizations paid out close to $500,000 just to have Margaret Trudeau speak at WE Day and related eventsall of it after her son, Justin, became prime minister. According to WE co-founder Marc Kielburger, Trudeau the mother was paid not only $312,000 in speaking fees, but $167,944 in travel and other costs, for a total of $479,944.

The Kielburgers said they hired Margaret Trudeau to speak at WE Day events given her personal story, struggle and advocacy on issues of mental health.

If I did not know any better, one would think that Hoid is a paid shill for the Liberal Party of Canada.

What I heard - and I heard it at least a dozen times - was that nobody was paid for speaking at WE Days - they were paid for the other work they did at ancillary functions surrounding WE Days.

What "ancillary functions" did Margaret Trudeau preform surrounding WE Days worth in the neighborhood of 1/2 a Million Dollars, but only after Justin Trudeau has become the PM of Canada?

Hell Man....Even the CBC...the Liberal Parties Cheerleaders...Today...state "WE Charity confirmed earlier this month that Trudeau's mother Margaret was paid about $250,000 for speaking at 28 events by Me to WE, the charity's for-profit arm, while his brother Alexandre spoke at eight events and received about $32,000." http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/we-charity-founders-testify-at-parliamentary-committee-1.5665748 The CBC is low-balling the number, but it's not dismissing the pay-out outright like you are.

I believe his wife was paid by WE before he was even in politics.

( I guess that's why she isn't being brought into it much)

well CBC is wrong.

According to today's testimony no fee was ever asked for or given for speaking at a WE Day.

But as I say I don't believe climate change is a hoax or that only white people are discriminated against so I may not have the proper perspective here at all.

I believe his wife, brother, & mother where all paid after he was in the PMO. Please post a LINK showing any of the Trudeau's where paid by WE Charity or WE Charity Foundation BEFORE Justin Trudeau was the Prime Minister of Canada.

Let me do you a solid here. Trudeau was elected for the first time in the 2008 federal election. He was the nominee for the Liberal Party in the electoral area of Papineau. Trudeau’s wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau received $1,400 in 2012 for a single appearance that year. Gets you a start if you're willing to back up what you're stating.

$1400....but yeah...it's not much compared to to the other Trudeau's that Got Paid, but more than the Zero that it appears anyone else got paid. I hear you in your derision of that paltry sum paid out for the Trudeau name, compared to Sacha & Margaret when Justin was/is the PM....but crickets about Trudeau's getting paid by WE before Justin was PM beyond this.


Enough for one night. Morning will happen quickly..

lol a half a million over the course of a decade for dozens of appearances to Maggie Trudeau?

Multi millionaire socialite, media maven, author?

Like that is going to make any difference to her or her family.

But that loss of 2 or 3 thousand dollars to Canadian students for volunteer work?

That's going to hurt them deeply.
