Hours before the termination of the $912 billion WE Scam, Rebel News published damning information about the political relationship between Justin Trudeau and the Kielburger brothers who founded that charity.
According to Elections Canada information – available on their website – Craig Kielburger donated to Trudeau’s leadership bid in 2013.
Rebel News further investigated this, as the information seemed to show illegal activity – that Kielburger may have exceeded the donation limit, doubling it.
We reached out to Elections Canada, who replied that the second donation never happened:
“It is not unusual for the same contribution to be recorded twice,” the spokesperson said.
In reality, Craig Kielburger donated the maximum allowable funds to the Trudeau campaign in 2013, capping out at $1,200.
In any event, seven years later, his flagship charity would be awarded a deal to funnel nearly a billion dollars to a Liberal program through his infrastructure.
Over a billion dollars in the last decade
Over the course of Trudeau’s government the Kielburger organization has scooped over $5,197,155 in taxpayer funded contracts with Canadian Heritage, Employment and Social Development Canada, and Environment and Climate Change Canada.
Trudeau has been under fire recently for funnelling almost $1 billion to the WE Charity to implement the Canada Student Service Grant on behalf of the Government of Canada. Trudeau said that they are the "only organization capable of administering the program."
WE will pay student "volunteers" 33 per cent below minimum wage in some cases to support the efforts of the left-wing charity. Unemployed college students who are unable to find work during the pandemic are being directed by the government to work for the Kielburger brothers' charity at less than a living wage.
Students will be “volunteering” for a stunted salary – paid by taxpayers – to become progressive social influencers for two brothers that are financial donors to Justin Trudeau’s political campaign.
Spending so much it was easy to miss
Back in the early days of the Wuhan pandemic, you might remember Justin Trudeau announcing government spending programs every single day. A day would not pass, not even a weekend, without Canada’s prime minister announcing grants and cheques here, and government programs there. It would be easy to forget when he announced that students would be eligible for a “service grant.”
Many folks, even those who were upset that the government was rambunctiously accumulating debt thought to themselves, “oh, alright – food banks might get some extra help, and maybe seniors might get lawns mowed and a hot meal delivered.”
The Canadian Student Service Grant turned out to be anything but, and is becoming Justin Trudeau’s new SNC-Lavalin.
Instead of helping young Canadians do good work in their community, taxpayers are paying off Trudeau’s debt to the Kielburger brothers. The $900 million will be directed towards WE programs, but it is unclear how much the organization is retaining for a management fee.
The connection that the Trudeau family has with the WE Charity has been reported on before – but not the financial ties the founders have to Trudeau’s political exploits.
Sophie Trudeau has her own section on the WE website, outlining how important she is to the cause, also highlighting some of her international celebrity junkets.
The Trudeau family has directly benefited from the success of WE, and vice-versa. Sophie Trudeau repeatedly goes on international speaking trips to New York and London (where the prime minister’s wife famously transmitted COVID-19 to Idris Elba after close personal contact).
Rebel News reached out to the Kielburger brothers for comment, and will update the story if they return.
