Shadow Finance Minister Pierre Poilievre’s line of questioning put Trudeau’s Finance Minister Bill Morneau in a visibly uncomfortable position, as the minister alleges that he had forgotten to pay back a $41,366 bill for two WE Charity trips to Kenya and Ecuador. “Do you expect us to believe that it is a mere coincidence that you repaid over $40,000 of expenses associated with your travel on a WE Charity trip today on the same day you were expected to testify under oath about it?” pressed Poilievre. “You didn’t know about a $41,000 expense? How is that possible?” Poilievre continued.
