WE Charity Scandal: Charity Executives Grilled Over Lobbying Activities

Finance – August 13, 2020:

WE Charity executives face questions over their organization’s interactions and communications with the federal government despite not being listed in the Registry of Lobbyists. WE Charity’s activities and its organization structure are under scrutiny due to the controversy surrounding the now-cancelled contract to administer a student volunteer program.

Speaking to the committee are WE Charity’s Executive Director Dalal Al-Waheidi and Chief Operations Officer Scott Baker, as well as former staff member Sofia Marquez.

The second panel features Katimavik’s CEO John-Frederick Cameron about his organization’s planned partnership agreement with the WE Charity.
