“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asked WE Charity to host a 2017 Canada Day weekend event on Parliament Hill, the organization’s co-founder said, for which the government paid $1.18 million. And Trudeau’s mother, who had been receiving fees for making public appearances at WE events at the time, was a speaker at the event.”

“WE Charity said last week that Margaret Trudeau had been paid a total of $312,000 in speaking fees for attending 28 WE events between 2016 and 2020. During those speeches, she spoke ‘primarily on the topic of mental health,’ WE Charity explained. Mental health was also the topic she spoke about at the 2017 Canada Day event. The prime minister also spoke at the event.”

“The WE event appears to promote Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government while also doubling as a promo for the charity.”
