Government records show that the federal government has supplied WE charity—a charity with connections to the Trudeau family—a number of sole-sourced contracts in recent years. These contracts are given directly to a supplier of the governments choosing instead of being competitively bid on, reports the National Post. After being criticized for handing another contract off to the organization, Trudeau responded saying that the charity was the only one “capable of networking and organizing and delivering this program on the scale that we needed it…” The charity has recently been chosen to receive millions from the government in order to run a student volunteer program. The program—worth $900 million—has been outsourced to WE Charity, which will be receiving $19.5 million or more in fees.
