LILLEY: Documents show politicians, not civil servants brought in WE


In the days before Canada’s civil service began discussing WE Charity as the group to run the Canada Student Service Grant (CSSG), there were multiple emails, phone calls and messages exchanged between the Kielburger brothers and the politicians who would make the decision. The Trudeau government has tried to put forward the narrative that it was civil servants who selected WE and that the political class in Ottawa was simply following their advice. The release of more than 4,000 pages of correspondence, memos and sales pitches, however, doesn’t support the government’s claim.
