OTTAWA — WE Charity would not have made any money from the cancelled agreement with the federal government to run a student volunteer program budgeted at $912 million, organization co-founders told MPs on the House of Commons finance committee Tuesday. WE co-founders Marc and Craig Kielburger answered questions for four hours via webcam, repeatedly denying that their organization was tapped to administer the program because of its ties to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family. “WE Charity agreed to implement the Canada Student Service Grant not to be helped by government, but to help government and to help young people across Canada,” Craig Kielburger said in his opening remarks.
