Conserevatives invested in WE too!

Saskatchewan’s premier is being asked by the official Opposition to proactively release his correspondence with the conflict of interest commissioner regarding a trip with the WE Charity’s founder, Craig Kielburger.

The Saskatchewan NDP said it’s raising concerns about the timeline that preceded a $260,000 partnership between the organization and the Ministry of Education.

Premier Scott Moe said that his family has been involved in supporting the WE foundation for a number of years.

“Most recently, we had — my wife and I — had attended in Kenya this past year. That was a personal trip and … we paid for that trip personally and it … we did not get paid in any way for our participation in that trip. That was a personal trip for us,” Moe said on Tuesday.

“I was aware that WE does do business with a number of governments. I wasn’t aware whether or not they did with the Saskatchewan government. So I approached, prior to going on that trip… our conflict of interest commissioner and inquired with him and he had said there was no conflict in this particular case.”

NDP education critic Carla Beck said Moe met with Kielburger this past winter and the premier indicated on Tuesday that a contract with the organization was already under consideration at that time.

“I would have been aware of it maybe late last summer, early last fall, of the WE well-being program in itself. I have discussed it at least once with the minister… but I have not been involved in any of the procurement,” Moe said on Tuesday.

“When a charity comes forward with a contract of this nature, what the government does then is it has a system where it will offer that contract out to see if there’s other charities that are involved… the WE foundation was the only charity that has been interested in this so it continues to find its way through the government-due-diligence process.

“There’s been no cabinet decision on this or no cabinet presentation on this.

“This is an area of interest to us, not because WE is offering it, but the area of the opportunity to potentially add to the tools in our tool chest, if you will, in providing services and supports for those that may be struggling with mental health or have mental health challenges, in particular in our K-12 (school) system.”

WE if we had a Conservative Government.

How would a Conservative Government handle WE? 

First off, they would fire all the teachers.  Then, they would look at how much money was just laying there and move it into the pockets of their friends.  The Students?  They would see nothing, the Conservatives prefer to hire degrees out of the US than support University Education In Canada.

Extreme?  Not at all; this is their history.

WE complaints being pushed by Conservatives.

A bit of our history. Trudeau and Munroe did not recuse themselves from The WE scandal. That indicates there is nothing shady going on. Let’s take a look at other instances where the Conservatives have accused the Government of things. Making wild statements does not represent fact!

The pm’s playground Scheer accused Trudeau of squandering taxpayers money. As it turned out a month later, the PM had bought the 6000 dollar playground with his own cash. Because of rules of residence, he could not install it, that had to be done by Government. (230.00)

Then again there was the time Scheer put in a complaint about the Shaw visit. (Failed to note the Shaw was an old family friend) The Graft? A gift of a pair of sunglasses made by the Shaw which, Trudeau did not declare.

I am suggesting there is nothing wrong here and like, you I am waiting for the PM and Munroe to explain.

Consider also, I’m pretty sure Trudeau didn’t ask his Mom to speak at any engagements! And, as far as Munro’s daughter is concerned, I’m happy she has a job. I would count that to luck and her specific training.
