Charitable Shenanigans (WE Scandal): Peoplekind News

Taylor and Matthew take a deep dive into the now-concluded WE Scandal. We’ve already covered the Kielburgers in-depth, but now we address their latest scandal, which spanned nearly an entire year and resulted in investigations, destroyed careers, millions of taxpayer money wasted, and another blemish on the scarred face of Justin Trudeau and his Liberals. Join us as we explore the deep ties between Liberal politicians and an international charity with scandals of its own. How did Trudeau mess up this badly? Why was WE Charity selected to run a government program? And what on earth were the Liberals thinking? We answer these questions and more!

The Kielburgers, Feel Bad Activists (Part Two): Peoplekind of Canada

Taylor and Matthew continue their appraisal of Craig and Mark Kielburger, the founders of WE Charity and ME to WE. We talk how WE Charity has partnered with corporations who exploit and enslave children in their global supply chains; legal obfuscations; what does voluntourism actually accomplish; white saviours; regulatory mischief in Kenya; and the ease with which charity and crime walk hand-in-hand. Join us as we continue to grimace at charity megalomaniacs, Craig and Marc Kielburger. Also! We talk a bit of news: Record breaking temperatures in BC; should Canada Day be celebrated; and Matthew rambles about the ‘historical spirit’ that is seeing statues of oppressors being torn down and beheaded.

The Kielburgers, Feel Bad Capitalists (Part One): Peoplekind of Canada

Taylor and Matthew donate their time to appraise the ‘charitable acts’ of Craig and Marc Kielburger, the founders of WE Charity and ME to WE. We cover their lives from privileged wunderkinds to (allegedly) corrupt charity icons. We talk forbidden love with a donkey; the financial shenanigans that saw their charity (WE Charity) giving money to their for-profit business (ME to WE); allegations of bullying and racism at WE Charity; lying to children who believe they are raising money to build a school abroad; demon children and libel suits; and a PR team obsessed with stamping out any and all criticism (we look forward to the lawsuit, Kielburgers!) Join us as we stare into the abyss, recounting the rise and fall of the Kielburgers before the WE Scandal of 2020.
