Foreign money pouring into the Trudeau Foundation after Justin has become PM

Trudeau Foundation donations are up 4-fold and foreign donations are up 10-fold since Justin won Liberal leadership, according to media reports.

This is a troubling sign for Canadian democracy as foreign donors and foreign governments could be looking to buy influence, thanks to Justin Trudeau. Is it time for the RCMP to open an investigation on the Trudeau Foundation.

A National Post analysis of the Trudeau Foundation’s public disclosures has found that gifts to the foundation have increased significantly since Justin Trudeau’s April 2013 election as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. The amount of money contributed to the foundation by foreign donors has grown each year since Trudeau claimed the party’s leadership. Moreover, a significant proportion of the charity’s donors, directors and members have ties to companies and organizations that are actively lobbying the federal government.
