House Ethics Committee Releases Report on WE Charity Affair

At a news conference on Parliament Hill, members of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ehtics discuss the committee’s report concerning the federal government’s now-cancelled agreement with WE Charity. The Liberal government faced heavy criticism and investigations by the federal ethics commissioner following its decision in June 2020 to award the charity a $900-million contract to administer a student grants program.
