PM Trudeau: Morneau ‘should not have accepted’ gifts from WE Charity


OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Finance Minister Bill Morneau should “not have accepted” the gifted portions of his family’s trips with WE Charity. Trudeau, speaking at a press conference in Ottawa on Friday, was referring to the fact that WE Charity paid in part for two trips that members of Morneau’s family took in 2017 — one of which Morneau himself took part in. Morneau has apologized for the “error” and said it was his full intention to cover the full cost of the trips — though he only last week repaid the $41,000 the charity had initially covered related to the trips to Kenya and Ecuador.
