The House of Commons finance committee will continue its probe of the federal government’s handling of a multi-million dollar student-volunteer program. WE Charity founders Craig and Marc Kielburger say they are ready to testify today about the organization’s now-scrapped contract to run the Canada Student Service Grant program. The finance committee decided yesterday to have the Kielburgers testify for four hours, either all at once today, or spread evenly over two days.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his chief of staff Katie Telford are scheduled to appear on Thursday. They will face questions over the aborted deal with the organization to run a $912-million-dollar student-volunteer program. Both Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau have family ties to the organization and both are being investigated by the federal ethics commissioner.
