ShareJuly 11, 2020 Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is once again at the center of criticism and controversy for having awarded an important public contract to a charity that recently paid for the mother, brother and wife who participated as speakers in the collection initiatives funds.
Conservatives who are in the opposition have asked that a judicial investigation be launched to verify whether the granting to We Charity of a public contract for the management of approximately one billion dollars without tender is not a case of fraud.
Quebec independence activists demanded the resignation of the prime minister.
The contract was later revoked, but yesterday the NGO admitted that it paid about $ 300,000 (equal to € 181,000) to the prime minister's mother, brother and wife. In particular, mother Margaret Trudeau had $ 250,000 from the association for speeches delivered on 28 occasions between 2016 and 2020.
