Protest erupts in Senate after accusations against PM in We Charity scandal


Them’s fighting words. Quebec Senator Leo Housakos called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a bribe taker in the We Charity scandal, prompting a chorus of “Shame! Shame!” from other senators in the chamber, according to Blacklock’s Reporter. The accusation came while they were debating a motion to investigate federal funding for the organization. “This scandal has shown us the Trudeau family and their Liberal friends have no scruples when it comes to money,” said Housakos. Countered Ontario Senator Frances Lankin: “We all heard Senator Housakos accuse the Prime Minister of bribery. Bribery is a charge under the Criminal Code.”
