The WE Charity’s co-founders publicly attacked Stephen Harper and his government in 2012. The WE organization have routinely stated that they do not have a political orientation. In an interview on The George Stroumboulopoulos Show, the host asked the Kielburger brothers (the WE Charity co-founders) whether there is someone who deserves “a kick in the ass.” “I would say the prime minister,” responded Marc Kielburger. After this comment, both brothers gave out a hearty laugh. “We’re not feeling so good about some of the recent policies, especially around pulling Canada out of Kyoto and many other activities as well. I think Canada could do a little bit better on the world stage,” added Marc.
