EXCLUSIVE: Liberal linked Canada 2020 seek more taxpayer funds from federal agencies

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

A few months ago, Canada 2020 received a sketchy donation from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. 

A federal agency gave $20K to an organization founded by one of Justin Trudeau’s long time friends, Tom Pitfield, who just happens to be the husband of the President of the Liberal Party of Canada.

Add to this that his company, Data Sciences, provides “digital engagement” for Liberal Party voter contacts.

And now I have documents that show why Canadians should be questioning this funding.

Internal emails between bureaucrats reveal that Canada 2020 is clearly approaching various government departments seeking taxpayer money to run events.

In fact, bureaucrats in the Privy Council Office even suggest getting in touch with both the Environment and Climate Change and Infrastructure departments because Ministers Catherine McKenna and Amarjeet Sohi have spoken at Canada 2020 events in the past!

This all just seems so cozy.

We know MPs, Ministers and even the Prime Minister, have hosted or spoken at events for Canada 2020.

We know that federal agencies have donated to Canada 2020. And now we know that they’re asking for more taxpayer money.

But how much?

This is taxpayer money that could be helping advance the Liberal Party so this is a fair question that taxpayers deserve to have answered.

JT treats Revenue Canada like his own personal piggy bank for his pet projects run by his buddies and brothers-in-arms.

We need to take back our country. OUR country.

Hoe ethical can an organization be that depends entirely on nepotistic redirection of public funds from a broken pension and healthcare system, to enrich political cronies.

Well Vajay Jay……to put in one word…….Ethics, it’s all about ethics, of which leftist regressive fucktards have no concept of. If you and your ilk can’t see the glaring conflict of interest, it confirms what has been said about the LPC and it’s members for decades. Says a lot about you believing it ok..

Hi Holly. You can never go wrong being suspicious of the politicians.

What is Canada 2020? I have not seen a good definition.

Rather than attack the name, The Rebel would do well to provide a definition and then describe why it is not worthy of federal funding.

Maybe Holly Nicholas could do a bit of investigation and provide us with a clear definition.

Oh corruption , where is thy sting

The younger crowd now a days are accepting corruption as a progressive tool to beat any conservative idealology
10 years ago or so this would be a shocker

Canada 2020 is a communist front org doing Alinsky community organizing and who ultimately want to have the immigrant population captured in a patronage-dependent plantation/gulag to help install the single party state.

Thanks Holly, excellent report. This looks like another matter that requires you to dig further.
I always appreciate your careful follow-up & attention to detail; and the updates.

Another Lying Party of Corruption plan to get around third party funding laws. Except this plan is even more corrupt than normal, because it makes tax payers the third party funders. Keep at it Ms. Nicholas, I think the corruption of the Baby Doc government will eventually make the Sponsorship Scandal look like a nickel and dime operation.
