#30 Liberals Flip Table Over WE Charity Scandal, Federal Greens Raise Destructive Death Taxes, and Quebec Government Bills Taxpayers to Lobby Itself

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.

Our Quebec Director Renaud Brossard has the full story.
