Hypocrisy, corruption, ethics violations, moral bankruptcy and on and on WE go.
Apparently the WE charity foundation paid Margaret Trudeau because of her passion for speaking up on Mental Health issues. Now of course two things come to mind when I hear this.
First, is the co incidence that her compensation coincides with Justin's entry into Politics. Second, of all the people that are both passionate and qualified on the issues, they could only find her.
WE is known for you scratch my back I will scratch yours when they raise money from large corporations, its a transaction, in that you donate to us and we will market your Company with a positive image. I see this as somewhat shady, or a grey area to say the least. This to me is more like a business transaction with a marketing and advertising agency. Now if all the funds, and by that I mean 99% are going to charitable work, then I would still be skeptical all things considered but fine. However, if Salaries are being paid that in any way help the corporations with their image, then this set up is actually skirting the Canadian Income Tax Act.
To Marc and Craig Kielburger, if you are running a charity, lets have Revenue Canada do a complete audit on your books, on ALL your corporations.
As to why I am so skeptical, well once this issue came to light its been one discovery after another, and one has to wonder if this is the tip of the iceberg. Now I haven't confirmed this but I have heard that the Kielburger's hired private detectives to follow journalists, I would like for someone to confirm to me, true or false, but if true this smells quite frankly of Fascism.
To Bill Morneau, you have paid back aprox 41k of travel expenses only because you got caught and then said I am sorry. Well any other tax payer, would be accessed interest and penalties on not reporting a taxable benefit. $41,000 dollars of tax evasion is a serious matter, and no one else gets to say, "Ops I forgot"
Now back to Margaret. She claims to be passionate about mental health issues. There are many people you could give 350,000 dollars too and they would become very passionate too. However lets get to the real dirt and slime. When the WE Charity pays her these fees, they help to also market her, and then she can overcharge other organizations, so that she receives more money at the expense of it going to those in real need. So in effect she has also received free services she has not declared or been taxed on. As I said slime.
Now to drill the point home, let me explain what someone who is truly passionate about not only mental issues but helping people with mental health issues, and helping those in need. ( as the WE charity claims to be doing) They would maybe publish a book on the issue, then contact the WE charity and say, not only will I speak for free, I will donate a percentage of each books sales to your charity, because I care so much about others
Obviously, this band of liberal thieves cares more about themselves than anyone else. Trudeau and his entourage live in their ivory towers.
Now that Trudeau has been called to testify, its hard to believe he could not answer one question, even he had weeks to prepare. He would not state even how much his family has profited from the WE foundation. One would think as our Prime Minister, if this was truly an error ( haha ) he would have all the facts and figures to lay open and clear what has transpired.
A funny side note, I have often compared Trudeau to Trump, that doesn't mean they are exactly the same but there have in fact many similarities, Trust fund babies, and narcissists to mention a few. When I tell people, some laughed and said get real, look what that trump did abusing/stealing from charities. Well well now, I rest my case!
Hi there, the blog has been running for almost a year, and as you can see I try to keep up a few posts a month. More about poetry and fellow poets, but also about current events, social issues as well as art and music. I look forward to any suggestions from readers and fellow poets!
