    Justin Trudeau is Doing a Great Job

    Lets sole source a contract to the firm we claim is the only one capable of administering it, yet they have zero presence in Canada's 2nd largest province.

    they should already be coming into service if trudeau wasn't so incompetent at literally every facet of the PM mandate.

    Justin Trudeau is Doing a Great Job

    The slippery verbal gymnastics are sad. Mr. Prime Minister, you control the flow of cabinet papers — what comes to cabinet and what does not. The clerk of the Privy Council/cabinet reports to you. So, you could have stopped the cabinet paper on the WE Charity from coming to cabinet in the first place. But you did not stop it. You not only did not stop it, you voted for it. If that is determined to be a breach of the Conflict of Interest Act, it won’t be your first time. Almost a billion dollars, no tender, to people with whom you and your family were involved. And your most important cabinet minister. And please don’t try and tell me what you didn’t know. Many of us have been there and know the difference. There is no cabinet government anyway — that is gone. Donald Savoie, in his book “Democracy in Canada — The Disintegration of Our Institutions,” entitles Chapter 10 “Cabinet: The Institution That Once Was.” He says in that chapter the following: “In the 2015 election, Justin Trudeau pledged to return Ottawa to cabinet government. He told CBC’s Peter Mansbridge that though his father launched governing from the centre, he would be the one to return Canada to cabinet government. He boldly declared on the day that his government was sworn to office that ‘government by cabinet is back,’ in effect acknowledging that Canada no longer had cabinet government in 2015. However, government by cabinet is not back. If anything, we have moved further away from it.” All political power in Canada now is from the centre — the Prime Minister’s Office and the Privy Council Office. Anyone who knows anything about Canada’s politics knows this to be true. I remember bypassing all cabinet ministers in order to get action on a relatively small matter in a ministry. So all this manoeuvring is just what the consultants are telling the PM — if you sort of face up to it and mire the whole thing in process, actually appear before the Parliamentary Committee (pretending it meant something — remember how the previous one on SNC-Lavalin got shut down?), deflecting, therefore, the key points of how the cabinet paper got to cabinet in the first place and that he actually voted for the contract award, he will be able to swim through this one. Our system of government is broken —- it is executive government, with unelected courts in tow, as the representatives of the people genuflect and act as social workers, not parliamentarians, and cabinet ministers vie to touch the hem of his garment.

    *** OFFICIAL Doug Ford thread ***

    he's so dumb. WE Schools Programming (WE Charity) ($250,000) WE Schools is a year-long education program that aims to nurture empathy and compassion in students and increase student outcomes in academic engagement, workplace readiness, and citizenship by engaging students and teachers in local and global actions through classroom and after-school curriculum and resources. The WE Schools Program supports positive mental health by providing resources to help educate young people about making a difference in local communities. Student engagement and participation bring attention to empathy and compassion as well as social justice issues like hunger, poverty, bullying, and education for girls.

    I think you are right. I am done for good.

    Correct. Also They have no capability to ensure delivery and no legal requirement to Divulge financials which would both be contractual requirements for a program this size if everything was on the up and up. The whole thing stinks.

    but more to the point as it pertains to sole source contracts 'WE Charity Foundation' has zero experience administering a project like this, which goes against the very first rule for GoC Sole Source Contracting: While the client department must provide the rationale for any exception to soliciting bids, it is the responsibility of the contracting officers to make sure that the rationale can be adequately supported. There is no way they could of because there is no experience from this company to draw upon, and the only way they would possibly do so is if they were directed to do so from the Liberal government, which is Breach of Public Trust in a nutshell.

    In Canada Revenue Agency documents, WE Charity Foundation said it was not a branch, section or division of any other charity.

    Serious question - why are you so dumb? From the GoC Communications Department themselves: “The contribution agreement for the Canada Student Service Grant is between the Government of Canada and WE Charity Foundation,” Dani Keenan said. WE Charity and WE Charity Foundation are in fact different charities. In Canada Revenue Agency documents, WE Charity Foundation said it was not a branch, section or division of any other charity. But the two organizations have the same Toronto address and phone number.

    you are so stupid it literally makes my head fucking hurt. The organization that the contract was awarded to was not WE Charity. Therefore, WE Charity's corporate qualifications are irrelevant as the contract was not issued to them. The company I work for has 4 incorporated companies all used for separate government procurements depending on the deliverables and corporate requirements as laid out in the RFP. They all share the company name but are 100% distinct and separate legal entities. They are all privately held by the same ownership group but none of them can use corporate qualifications or references of each other in a government procurement because they are separate. If you can't understand these basic simple rules of how procurement works between the government and private industry there is no point discussing this with you. Go back to the corner and get higher.

    except they didn't use WE, they used a separate organization with absolutely no credentials in this area whatsoever, who also had no ability to guarantee delivery or no requirement to share their financials. It's as clear cut as it gets, unless you are a hack, mentality retarded, or both.

    Justin Trudeau is Doing a Great Job

    dude you have ZERO understanding of how fed gov procurement works. The issuing of this contract exclusively to an organization that has no capability in this area coupled with the fact there are deep ties between the LPC and WE is a breach of trust, which is a criminal offense. If the PM recused himself that would not have changed one single thing. You are as dumb as a stump. Go try and google search a rebuttal.

    how fucking dumb are you? Serious question? Recused or not the issue is why was a sole source issued to WE for this work, and who was involved in choosing them, fucking moron.

    this has nothing to do with the CPC. There is only so long clear incompetence, impropriety and criminality can be buried.

    Trudeau claiming he pushed back because he knew the optics were bad. That is what a conflict of interest is! My god he's fucking dumb.

    trudeau only appearing for an hour today at the committee hearing on this chaired by the fucking libs. Shameful.

    ah so you are waiting for their excuses for why they broke the law before you comment, got it. how Trudeau himself benefited is immaterial you fucking moron. He broke the law in order to award contracts exclusively to liberal friendly organizations. Pretty fucking simple.

    I never saw the issue to begin with. Who cares where the $$ came from they should have been upfront about it as no laws were broken. Mac Harb (a lib) was guilty of the exact same offense. bold - once again you are making shit up. And what does a city mayor have to do with federal corruption? Why can't you ever stay on topic?

    but you were outraged about it then. Why?

    Justin Trudeau is Doing a Great Job

    Let's look at the facts shall we? Fact: WE stated they were contacted by the PMO with regards to the program and then mysteriously recounted that claim. Why? Fact: The feds issued a sole source to a company with no history administering a program like this, no ability to guarantee delivery (a requirement), and no obligation to show the finances involved in said administration of taxpayer money. Why? Fact: The initial contract stipulated $19.5 million to administer the program and then it was revealed WE would be paid for each student they sign up which would increase the cost of administration to as much as $40M +. Why? Fact: WE is on record saying Morneau's trip was a gift, yet Morneau decided to pay for it to the penny 3 years after the fact. Why?
