At a news conference on Parliament Hill, Michael Barrett, the Conservative ethics critic, and Pierre Poilievre, the party’s finance critic, comment on investigations being undertaken by the House of Commons ethics and finance committees concerning the federal government’s now-cancelled agreement with WE Charity.
