News at the Top – Liberals Flip Table Over We Charity Scandal Liberal MPs are shutting down committee meetings and filibustering to keep hundreds pages of blacked-out documents about the WE Charity scandal secret. Federal Director Aaron Wudrick breaks down some of the chaos. Link: https://globalnews.ca/news/7402932/liberals-we-charity-scandal-2/ Deep Dive – Federal Greens Raise Destructive Death Taxes 6:51 The Green Party recently raised their proposal for a death tax in Parliament. Fun fact: It’s an idea so terrible that even Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau eliminated it when he was in office. Other countries are ditching it too.
