WE Charity Scandal: Impasse Over Redacted Documents Continues

Finance – October 28, 2020 – Part 2*:

After sitting past midnight the night before, the committee continues its discussion over Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre’s motion. Poilievre raised a point of privilege concerning redacted documents related to the federal government’s now-cancelled agreement with WE Charity. Thousands of pages of documents that were disclosed to the committee in August were heavily redacted by government departments. Liberal MPs have been filibustering the committee since meetings resumed when Parliament returned from prorogation.

*(This meeting took place on October 29, but it is listed as a continuation of the October 28 meeting since that meeting was never technically adjourned.)
