Please SIGN this petition which asks the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to launch an investigation into the controversial WE Charity contract deal.
Canadians deserve a corruption-free government, but allegations of impropriety are hanging over matters related to the WE Charity contract deal with the current government.
And, only the RCMP is positioned to launch an independent inquiry into the issues of whether or not any laws were broken, and or possible abuse of political office for personal or family gain.
Indeed, the WE Charity was criticized in June 2020 when the Canadian government selected the charity to administer the Canada Student Service Grant program, a $900 million program which would help students experiencing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of particular concern are revelations that WE Charity paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to members of the Trudeau family for past speaking engagements, and that the charity paid for Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s vacation (Morneau later repaid them).
These revelations obviously raise serious questions:
- What is the connection between WE Charity and high-ranking government officials?
- What, if anything, did either party stand to gain from this contract?
- Why and how was the $43.53 M contract awarded to WE Charity without going through a competitive bidding process?
- And, was the Lobbying Act violated?
The main concern is that the charity has deep connections with the Trudeau Family and other important government officials, and that serious conflicts of interests may have existed between members of government and the charity...and that laws may have been broken.
Although an investigation into the connection between the federal government and WE Charity was launched, questions have not been answered. Instead, more questions have been brought up.
Since the story broke, the Liberals have repeatedly delayed voting on the release of WE Charity documents.
And, just recently, a motion, which was sponsored by the Conservatives in the House of Commons and which called for an investigation into the relationships between WE Charity and the government and Ministers of the Crown and their families, was defeated.
But, the fact that the government and its political allies seem to be trying to bury this issue politically should not distract the attention of law enforcement who have a duty to ensure that government officials are held to account for serious breaches of conflict of interest.
No government leader or official should behave as though they are above the law.
Please SIGN this petition which calls on the RCMP to launch an independent investigation into the WE Charity controversy.
Then, please SHARE with your like-minded family, friends and relations.
