Yes, lots of people used to be proud to be associated with WE until they came under scrutiny. Telus, Virgin Airlines, RBC, the Globe and Mail, Toronto public school board...

your "scrutiny": the bullshyte Canadaland article you linked to... oh ya, and the "testimony" of charlatan Krause!  ;D And, of course, add in the uber-partisanship of the CONDP (aided and abetted by an obliging media that, apparently, no longer has the chops to do actual investigations)

It must be a conspiracy!  All the politicians and all the media-- even the Ceeb and the TorStar-- all in on it to bring down the Kielbergers and the Liberals!

as naive as you typically are, perhaps you could offer comment on why its taken this long for facts to begin to rise above the bullshyte being pedaled by CONDP'a weakAndy & Jugmeat along with the sorry-assed commentary from the likes of Akin, Goldstein, Vassy, Solomon, etc.!

Which is what?  That they all do it?  It still doesn't make it right.

At the very least Morneau needs to step down.

Well, maybe Katie Telford can get out her Rolodex and line up some people to write some op-eds.

Only a king-sized putz would talk **** about Vassy.

For 'forgetting' the $40K tab.

pardon me if I don't put any credence into something spewed by St. Jody!  ;D

as for Vassy? Is she your girl? She just happens to be one of the worst!

meanwhile, as I read, Morneau has previously donated $100K+ to WE

I don't buy it for a second that he could 'forget' but even if he did, he clearly made a grave error bringing into question his ability to fulfill his role.

so... no recognition from you on the prior personal donations made hey! More on that referenced 100K donation made by Morneau to WE Charity... came in the form of 2 separate donations of $50K each over a 2 year period.

as for the $41K, WE Charity never invoiced as it 'comped' the cost for Morneau's family stay... as is the regular practice of WE when inviting potential supporters. And yes, certainly, rules don't allow for Ministers to accept sponsored travel costs. Note: the waldo has asked his crack research team to confirm whether the rules apply only to the Minister proper... or extends to also include family members. In any case, Morneau paid $41K after asking for a determination of what charges would have applied at the time - which was determined at the rate: USD $ 4,395 per person.

and, again: the public servants at ESDC selected, then recommended WE... and as shown today, 20 organizations were looked at prior to the eventual selection of WE. As prior testimony has showed, neither PM Trudeau or Minister Morneau had any involvement and/or engagement with ESDC in its selection/recommendation process.

also, apparently no recognition from you as to how Morneau has helped guide Canada/Canadians through the pandemic - oh my! A, as you say, grave error... on your part!

I don't think Morneau handled the pandemic spectacularly so I won't cut him any slack on WE because of it.  I also don't think his donation should have any bearing on anything. 

Maybe I'm just strange, but I prefer finance ministers who remember when they have a conflict of interest and ensure that they don't put themselves in such a position. 

As someone who works in finance, if I 'accidentally' forgot to reimburse the company for monies owed, I don't think 'I forgot' would do me much good.  I am in a position of trust and it's up to me to make sure I don't forget these things.   

That's IF I accept that he really forgot.  Which I don't.

At best case scenario, he's too incompetent to be entrusted with his role.
