This thing just gets better and better.
Prime Minister Justice Trudeau’s government awarded the contract to run the $912-million student volunteer program to a foundation that only received charity status last year and whose stated purpose was to “hold real estate,” newly released records show.
Both a government and charity official confirmed the controversial Canada Student Service Grant contract was not with WE Charity, as Trudeau announced.
Rather, the government gave the contract to the WE Charity Foundation, which is a distinct charity with no track record.
As an aside — am I the only one who thinks Trudeau was setting up Kielburger as a political successor?
Update. On, the small matter of a $41,000 oversight.
.@Bill_Morneau says he wrote a $41K cheque to WE today for expenses related to his family's trips with WE. “I had expected & always had intended to pay the full cost of these trips… not doing so, even unknowingly, is not appropriate. I want to apologize for this error,” he said pic.twitter.com/BPEoD6zY0B
