There was always going to be an odour coming off the WE arrangement — money just made it worse Justin Trudeau and his government have shown a remarkable ability to find trouble in novel places — a Christmas vacation, the Shawcross doctrine and the possibility of a deferred prosecution agreement for SNC-Lavalin, the prime minister’s choice of attire during a trip to India. And now, a national program for student volunteers. News that a subsidiary of the WE Charity paid Trudeau’s mother and brother for speaking engagements raises further questions about the government’s decision to enlist WE to disperse the funds from that program — and the prime minister’s apparent involvement in signing off on that decision. It inflames doubts that were already being raised about the intent behind the government’s decision to partner with WE.
