Trudeau Liberals playing a bad game of defence on WE

Quote:
One of the defences against the WE scandal and claims that the Trudeau government was too cozy with an organization that they gave a $912-million sole-sourced contract to is that Conservatives were tight with them as well.

Trudeau has raised the funding WE received from the Harper government in the House of Commons. Supporters of the prime minister tweet out photos or old tweets from people like Laureen Harper or leadership contenders Peter MacKay and Erin O’Toole.

Yet these claims don’t stand up to even the slightest scrutiny.

Unlike Sophie Trudeau, the current PM’s wife, Laureen Harper was never invited to speak at one of the massive WE Day rallies. She tweeted out support and met with celebrity speaker Martin Sheen at a reception. She once attended an Ottawa-area WE Day as a guest but not a speaker.

That is a far cry from being asked to co-host an event in Montreal, speak at several others, host a podcast and be an ambassador for WE.
Where's The Bigot with his cries of "whataboutism"?

Trudeau strains to contain political scandal engulfing his family

Quote:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, is embroiled in another controversy of his own making that’s inflicting political damage on him and his administration.

The Canadian leader is struggling to contain the rapid spread of a firestorm sparked by his plan to award a sole-source contract to a powerful charity and fueled by revelations that members of his family have been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees by the organization over the past half decade. The dustup also threatens to cost Trudeau his trusted finance minister.
Bold mine.

Now that would purely be a tragedy...

WE charity scandal - A simple guide to the new crisis for Trudeau

A blow by blow.

Trudeau’s approval rating drops amid WE scandal, faith in Liberals remains: poll

Quote:
Despite strong approval for his handling of the coronavirus outbreak, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s image has taken a hit amid the WE Charity scandal, according to an Angus Reid survey.

Trudeau’s approval rating in May sat at 55 per cent, but that number fell to 44 per cent as of July 23, the survey showed. Half of the respondents said their opinion of Trudeau has worsened in the past month.
Bold mine.

And the other half said it couldn't get any lower...

WE Charity started work on federal student grant program weeks before cabinet approval

Quote:
WE Charity began working on Ottawa’s student volunteer grant program weeks before the federal cabinet approved the deal, newly released documents reveal.

A copy of the contribution agreement between the government and the charity showed that WE officially began working on the Canada Student Service Grant (CSSG) on May 5.

Federal cabinet met to discuss the program — and ultimately approve WE Charity — on May 22.
The WE Show

Quote:
Programing note: Those SDAers retired or otherwise not working, make sure you tune in to the House of Commons Finance committee hearings tomorrow, Tuesday. Michelle Douglas, former WE chair of directors, who quit last March, is scheduled to testify, along with the Kielburger cronies.

At CPAC.

There’s more to come out about Kenya: Who does ‘voluntourism’ actually help? Trips run by WE and other charities draw skepticism
WE's moment of glory turns potentially fatal

Quote:
One of the truly oddest items in this ever exfoliating WE story, one that came from far out in left field, was the news that Craig Kielburger, the lead progressive gospeller and co-founder of the embattled corporation, was named to the Leaders’ Debate Commission for the past election.

Where did that outré notion come from, and what precisely was Craig Kielburger going to bring to the deliberations of that sometimes controversial group? Over the past few weeks all have learned that WE has many fingers in many pies, but it is truly hard to see how a real estate and “voluntourism” entity has any expertise to lend to setting up political debates.
And, finally, this:

The Libranos: WE HAVE A WINNER

Quote:
Librano math: How the hell does a contract originally claimed to be worth $19-million by the Trudeau government get an advanced payment of $33-million?

*DING*DING*DING*DING*

We have a winner.
How the hell does a contract originally claimed to be worth $19-million by the Trudeau government get an advanced payment of $33-million?
Update: $30 Million was paid to WE within a week of contract signing (May 5!) & now has to be re-paid back..
Bold mine.

Questions, questions, questions...

CBC edited out O'Toole's plan to defund CBC during radio interview

Quote:
Conservative leadership candidate Erin O'Toole had an answer edited out by the CBC during an interview with the crown broadcasting corporation—during this answer, O'Toole made the case for defunding the CBC.

The CBC only chose to edit out the question and answer that related to the CBC's federal funding. No other answers were cut from the interview.

Fortunately, the O'Toole team recorded the entire interview and posted it on their social media.
Can't plant a seed...

Porno Willie quits!

I’ve been busy. Is Bill Morneau still our Finance Minister?

Bumped. Morneau is holding a news conference at 7:15pm. Radio-Canada is reporting he plans to resign.
My sources confirm that Bill Morneau has resigned as Minister of Finance.

— David Cochrane (@CochraneCBC) August 17, 2020
And from his Montreal seat as well. In fact, he’s done such a fin job with Canada, that Morneau has raised his sights to secretary general of the OECD.

Doesn't matter a bit. Freeland will be the country's first elected female PM.

FUXL, are you OK? These last two posts of yours are lame even by your standards.

I'm not looking forward to that scenario. She's been terrible in particular on the Latin American front, seemingly quite happy with the right-wing evangelical coup that is leading Bolivia to ruin; carrying water for the USA through the ludicrous "Lima Group" working to force an overthrow of the Venezuelan government, and generally misfiring on Canada-Cuba policy.

Hello, Bigot.

On the contrary, I think it's fabulous. Go for it. It's taken 6 years for the Prime Sockboy's luster to wear off among the commies, along with Porno Willie's. Even the most ardent of Progs, the Laurentian Elite, are tired of him.

Bring on The Purple Perogy. Please. She won't last a full term before she implodes.

Let this country know just how shallow the Lieberal gene pool actually is (about a finger's with)...

The Libranos: WE “Nudged”

Jesus, finally. The truth is out:

-Proof that it was the Trudeau gov't & not the public service who first put forth WE for the job.

-Proof of early PMO pressure

-Proof that WE leveraged relationships w Margaret & Sophie Trudeau to get the $#WEscandalhttps://t.co/XhrdnYTYxY pic.twitter.com/EaEfdFBE5M

So, the Purple Perogy is now Finance Minister. I hope she does the same bang-up job she did on the Free Trade agreement as Foreign Minister!

And, in addition to her annoyingly slow dictation (guess Progs can't comprende normal speech cadence), she steals Joey Wetfingers' campaign slogan!:

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHA!!!!!



Other comments also nail it.
