Bill Morneau's resignation will do little to quash the WE Charity affair: Jagmeet Singh

BY , Aug 18, 2020 5:31 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says the resignation of Bill Morneau as federal finance minister will do little to quash the WE Charity affair.

Singh says that's because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the rest of his inner circle are still at the cabinet table. Jagmeet Singh says he does not believe the resignation of Bill Morneau as federal finance minister will end the ethical problems plaguing the federal Liberals.

Singh told reporters in Vancouver that Morneau's replacement, Chrystia Freeland, was at the cabinet table when decisions were made to offer WE Charity a multi-million dollar contract to administer a new student grant program.

Jagmeet Singh says the resignation of Bill Morneau as federal finance minister makes him worried for vulnerable Canadians. Singh says the resignation shows the Liberal government is more concerned about moving past the WE Charity scandal than it is helping Canadians get through the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
