WE Charity scandal: Poilievre demands answers about Craig Kielburger’s LinkedIn message to Trudeau advisor

In a heated exchange during Monday’s virtual House of Commons ethics committee meeting that saw WE Charity founders, brothers Craig and Marc Kielburger, testify about their charity’s role in potential conflict of interest lobbying in relation to pandemic spending, Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre questioned why Craig sent a LinkedIn note to Ben Chin, one of Trudeau’s top advisers, thanking him for his “kindness” in helping shape their program with the government. Poilievre demanded to know if Chin played a role in establishing a now-defunct government program with WE Charity during the pandemic, with Craig stating he was not aware.
