Kielburger brothers say they won’t testify before ‘partisan’ Commons committee

DM

WE Charity co-founders Craig and Marc Kielburger are declining requests to testify before two House of Commons committees. In a statement Wednesday, the charity noted that New Democrat MP Charlie Angus has requested that the RCMP and the Canada Revenue Agency investigate WE’s operations. The charity said it would be unfair to subject it to a “partisan” committee investigation at the same time. “While WE Charity would welcome and co-operate with any potential investigation conducted by these agencies (RCMP and CRA), no organization should be subject to both an investigation of the same matters by a partisan parliamentary committee which wishes to carry out its own substitute investigation,” the charity said.
