Trudeau to face sixth ethics investigation as prime minister over WE Charity debacle

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will now be facing a sixth investigation by Canada’s ethics commissioner over the federal government’s decision to award a $900 million sole-source contract to a charity with ties to the Trudeau family.

Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau both have extensive ties to WE Charity. Grégoire Trudeau is a “WE ambassador and ally” and hosts a podcast with the organization, and the family has hosted and attended many WE events. Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s daughter Clare Morneau is also tied to the organization. 

Trudeau called WE Charity the “best and only” organization able to administer the Canada Student Service Grant program.

Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion confirmed to the Conservatives and the NDP on Friday that he is opening an investigation into the deal.

“In your letter, you allege that, given the existence of Mr. Trudeau’s close family ties with WE Charity and the outsourcing of this project to the charity over the federal public service or another volunteer organization, Mr. Trudeau afforded preferential treatment to WE Charity in contravention … of the Conflict of Interest Act,” wrote Dion in a letter today to NDP MP Charlie Angus.

“I have considered your request and am of the view that it satisfies the requirements set out in … the Act. I am therefore commencing an examination.”

Black man stabbed by a black male simp in a supermarket for Dating a White Girl

A Black man was stabbed Wednesday during an altercation in a Bowie, Maryland supermarket. The incident allegedly occurred after he was spotted with his white girlfriend and then accused of betraying his race.

“I was just shopping in Giant with my girlfriend,” the victim, Avery, told WUSA9.

Another Black simp reportedly approached the interracial couple after they bumped grocery carts. The suspect then pulled out a knife and started yelling at them.

“He said I’m a betrayal of my kind for messing with a white girl,” Avery said. “If you think there’s something wrong with somebody for messing with another race, you’re just as bad as the racist people yourself bro. That’s racist.”Defend democracy. Click to invest in courageous progressive journalism today.
