Trudeau government won’t say who got billions of dollars in aid


While some payments have been revealed, the destination of billions of dollars in aid remains secret. When Justin Trudeau ran for office in 2015, he promised Canadians a more open and transparent government. An investigation by CBC News reveals, however, that the Trudeau government hasn’t been entirely transparent about where COVID-19 aid worth billions of dollars has gone. While the government has made available high-level aggregate spending statistics, or estimates of the net fiscal impact, for the more than 100 programs it has launched since the pandemic began, only a few departments have released details about which individuals, groups or companies have received government money.
