REPORT: WE Charity To Shut Down Canadian Operations, Kielburger’s Stepping Down

News of the shutdown was broken by Canadaland.

WE Charity is done in Canada.

The organization that was nearly elevated to the seat of power when Justin Trudeau tried directing a gigantic taxpayer-funded program towards them, is now ending operations in Canada entirely.

The news was broken by Canadaland:

As you can see in the Tweet above, WE had put a statement on their website late in August that sounded like a farewell.

Here’s what WE said in a letter issued today:

“COVID-19 disrupted every aspect of our work. The fallout from the Canada Student Service Grant has placed us as a charity in the middle of political battles and misinformation that we are ill-equipped to fight. The financial math for the charity’s future is clear.”

Now, it remains to be seen if WE will continue in other parts of the world, or if this is the end for the organization entirely.

Currently, their US and UK operations are ongoing, and ME to WE (the for-profit arm of the organization) has not been shut down.

Before the WE Scandal caused by Trudeau, the charity was already struggling, with big layoffs, removal of many members of various boards, and the selling of real estate that seemed to point to financial problems.

There is quite an irony here.

Justin Trudeau seemed to think he was saving the charity (which paid over half a million to his family), by giving them the huge taxpayer funded program, when the scandal caused by his actions may have led to the end of WE.

Another example of Trudeau’s unique mix of unethical incompetence.

I suppose that the oligarchy will now profit by buying the buildings and offices for a song.So the corruption does not stop.I hope that the politicians see that the sale is done fair.Corruption is like cancer and it spreads through just like cancer.


I wonder how much of OUR cash they’re taking with them ?!!


Have they repaid the money Trudeau advanced? Will the group slide out of that obligation by ending their operation in this country?

Just when the question should have been answered Trudeau pro-rogued Parliament. So what is the penalty clause in the WE contract? Penalty clauses are put in place by leftist Governemtns to make it unattractive or impossible for subsequent conservative Governemtns to break the contract. Does the penalty clause for WE force allow them to keep the Billion? – Not a billion you say? The penalty clause is usually the contract amount plus 50% or more.
Now WE is suddenly leaving Canada – leaving the Canadian banking establishment…


Looks good on them! Let’s hope Trudeau follows them into their mutually made disaster. Businessmen the Keilburgers never were, and never will be. Might even be tough to find a regular job now. Who in hell’s name would hire them?!

There has to be so much more to the Scandal for them to be just shutting down just Canada. If they shut down what becomes of the paper trail??

Unethical incompetence. What an apt phrase to encapsulate Justin Trudeau. I’d buy a T shirt with a picture of Trudeau and this phrase printed underneath his mug. And just my luck he would step down before I got to wear it out in public…a $20 investment that saves Canada billions. Might be worth taking a $20 hit to save the country.


Trudeau attempted to transform WE into a recruitment arm for the Liberal Party, thats why he did it, and now look at the trainwreck. Bet it was Butts idea.
