WE Charity Scandal: MPs Vote to Adjourn Meeting

Finance – October 28, 2020 – Part 3*:

The committee ends a round of filibustering by Liberal MPs by voting to adjourn the meeting. There was an impasse at the committee over Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre’s 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 November 4, but it is listed as a continuation of the October 28 meeting since that meeting was never technically adjourned.)
