CUPE funds anti-Conservative "charity" to travel to UN hearing in Geneva

Dean SkoreykoRebel Blogger

Buried deep in this story from CBC’s Dean Beeby titled Canada Without Poverty charity challenges Harper govt Audits at UN in Geneva is this little gem:

The Canadian Union of Public Employees provided special funding for McLachlan and another member of the group to travel to Geneva for the hearings.

More proof that union dues are being redirected to run political campaigns against the Conservative government same as this gets just a passing mention from the CBC of course.

You’ll never see Media Party members like Beeby digging deeply into anti-Conservative ‘charity’ groups and expose where their money comes from.

Good investigative piece by Dean Skoreyko. One point: according to data submitted to the Canada Revenue Agency, the so-called Canada Without Poverty charity took in $318,125 in total revenues during the 2013/14 fiscal year. But of that amount, an unusually high $178,500 came in as “other non-tax receiptable revenues”, i.e., from non-charity sources where no tax receipts can be given. So this large amount, presumably, came from unions like CUPE. Oh, by the way, I logged onto the CWP web site, and could not find any accessible annual reports.
