View Full Version : Justin Trudeau just gave $241 million in taxpayer money to the Clinton Foundation.

Justin Trudeau has been a vocal advocate on women’s issues.

Our Prime Minister has been praised, both here and abroad, for his efforts to advance equality among men and women.

He’s been particularly effective advocating for the United Nations and other governments to do more to help women living in violent or oppressive conditions, particularly women in those parts of the world
subjected to barbaric practices such as female genital mutilation or child and forced marriages.

We could not be more supportive of this sort of advocacy.

Canada can and should play a leadership role in advancing initiatives that foster real change in the lives of women globally.

However, we have real concerns with plans announced Tuesday by the Liberal government to hand $241.5 million over to the Clinton Foundation to “support projects that will provide critical sexual and reproduction health (SRH) services” around the world.

The initiative was created under the umbrella of the Clinton Foundation, formed by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, and prominently supported by both Hillary and daughter Chelsea Clinton.

The Clinton’s have earned millions from their association with the foundation, not from direct compensation, but through book and speaking tour fees.

Bill Clinton, for example, reportedly received $26 million in speaking fees from organizations that donated to the foundation.

Meanwhile, the lavish foundation-related travel needs of the Clintons – including first-class tickets and charter planes – are covered by its donors.

More problematically, the foundation was at the heart of the cash-for-access scandal that dogged Hillary during her failed bid for the U.S. presidency.

While Hillary was Secretary of State, the Clinton foundation received millions from rich and powerful donors, including foreign governments –many of whom were seeking favorable decisions from the U.S. State
Department.

Without doubt there were inflammatory allegations during the campaign about improper ethical behaviour, but just as clearly there were legitimate questions about relationships between the donors, the Clintons and their foundation.

And there’s no doubt the foundation has served as a powerful political tool for the Clintons.

Into this sticky wicket wades Justin Trudeau.

We take no issue with our government showing leadership on women’s issues.

We do question the wisdom of using Canadian taxpayer cash to get into bed with the Clintons.

Expect the Clinton Foundation to now make a donation of at least 2 million to the Trudeau Foundation.

So tax money is funding the clinton slush fund.

Nearly $1/4 billion towards political who knows what.

That sounds very illegal.

There's your non confidence motion.

Will this, and similar Freeland initiatives of the past year, help or hurt near future NAFTA negotiations ?

The editorial is misleading. It's $20 million, not 241.

Clinton Health Access Initiative: SRHR for adolescents and young women - Nigeria - $20 million (2017 to 2021)
The proposed project will improve access to SRH choices for young women and adolescent girls through an innovative approach that engages both the public and private sector in expanding spaces where services and products are both accessible and meet their family planning needs.

Still $20 million too much. The Clinton Foundation is too tainted and one wonders how much of that $20 million will actually reach young women in Nigeria.

The clinton's managing Canadian tax money is slightly less discomfiting than the turd managing Canadian tax money. Neither one should happen.

Once they have it, they will do whatever they want with it, whenever they want.

Yeah, likely. It's a collection of thieves and the least likely of any accountability being spread to so many African nations and the clintons.

Reading through that list is ugly.
The idiot is shotgunning money at every third-world shithole around, in the hopes of what?
Not being a true believer of Rainbows, Unicorns and Sunny Ways™, and having read a headline or two in the last 40 years, I have a distinct feeling that about $37.50 is actually going to go towards real help for some girl.

That right there should be more than enough to halt ANY funding to the clintons.

[note, this is not Clinton Foundation, but more of a description of the mess that was Haiti recovery]
$9 billion in international funding
90% didn't make it into the country
$580 million went to the Haiti government (not 'some girl')
$36 million went to Haiti organizations (still not 'some girl' but getting warmer)
IHRC's mandate was not renewed by the Haitian parliament in 2011.

Oh well. Whats another $25 bucks off my paycheque each month? Spend spend spend spend. Can you actually believe that people support this for a government. If we all ran our finances like the liberals we be broke years ago. How can people differ so much on their political views and their own beliefs. I just don't understand. Isn't it very evident that you get less when a liberal government is in power. What is Canada getting out of all these outrageous spending sprees. Weve got people living on the streets. We have schools closing down and the tax payers money is being given away. By this pucking sarsehole.

None ...
one quarter will go to fund ISIS and Al Qaeda ..
a quarter to fund environmental and Turdoe's foundations in Canada ...
a quarter to pay off women raped by Bill ..
and the last quarter to satisfy Hitlery's desires ...

so, actually - 100% to solve women's issues ...just in different aspects ..

1950-1970 they might have tried calling it "collusion with communist Canada".
