Following accusations of cronyism, Ottawa announces Canada Student Service Grant will not be administered by WE Charity

This translation has been automatically generated and has not been verified for accuracy.The Liberal government has cancelled the $900-million contract with WE Charity to run a student volunteer program.

The government announced last week that the new Canada Student Service Grant will be administered by WE Charity, an international charity that organizes large-scale WE Day events for young people that frequently feature Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, as keynote speakers.

The deal was quickly slammed as cronyism by the opposition and questions were raised about how the charity would manage the program, its plans to hire hundreds of volunteers for itself through the program it would also be administering, and plans to pay teachers to recruit students.Until Friday, the government had defended the organization and its decision to award the charity the massive contract.

“Moving forward they will not be managing the program,” read a statement from Bardish Chagger, the minister for diversity, inclusion and youth, on Friday. “This is a mutually agreed upon decision. The Government of Canada and WE Charity will work together to ensure that the volunteers who have applied and been placed won’t be adversely affected. WE Charity has also decided to return any funds that had already been received.”Know what is happening in the halls of power with the day’s top political headlines and commentary as selected by Globe editors .

“They’re asking for more than we can give” - Trudeau on veterans

This scam was just too obvious

hahahahahahahah of course they did. That explains Sophie Trudeau's face and the green screen.

Oh damn, we got caught reverse course !!!

Sophie got covid after attending an event organized by WE in UK. Only after that did Trudeau even take this whole covid seriously. WE was forced to back out after the common citizen was made aware of the ties with Trudeau and his wife. Nepotism and corruption cannot be tolerated.

Sweet mother of God... can this government do anything right?

They really had no choice. This was sketchy.

WE group to stop running federal volunteer programYouth Minister Bardish Chagger says the WE organization won't manage the federal government's $900-million program to pay students and fresh graduates for volunteer work this summer. Getting a little too hot in Trudeau's kitchen I guess. Genie's out of the bottle. Real news orgs like rebel are in the process of untangling the ball of twine here. It seems that the founders of this charity helped finance trudeau's leadership run & the liberals. In classic criminal style Trulander was paying them back with our $$. We still need to investigate this .....

Tories Urge Watchdog To Review Government Contracts With WE CharityConservatives also want the decision to outsource the Canada Student Service Grant program examined. 'Gossip' in the Cabbagetown neighborhood is that WE is being investigated by CRA. They bought lots of houses on Carlton Street, found a new H.O. at Parliament and Queen. Sold all houses on Carlton Street. Made huge profits. They owned the house attached to our's, worst landlords. WE is a wonderful organization. What are the tories going on about.I am sick of all their bull crap. Where are journalists? Too much cash from Justin?
