Trudeau, chief of staff testify before House Finance Committee on WE Charity deal | FULL

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faced a parliamentary committee Thursday, where he testified on his government’s decision to ask WE Charity to administer a $912-million student grant program.

Trudeau appeared before the House of Commons Finance Committee (FINA) at 3 p.m. ET as part of the parliamentary probe into the nearly 1-billion dollar program.

Katie Telford, his chief of staff, testified after Trudeau.

During the virtual hearing, Trudeau claimed that when he received the information WE Charity was being recommended by public service to deliver the student grant program, he “pushed back” and added that he was not presented with other options of charities to carry out the program by public service.

WE Charity backed out of administering the program in early July amid a controversy over the Liberals’ awarding the organization a sole-sourced contract despite its close ties to the Trudeau family.
