Trudeau urges Canadians to give to B.C. wildfires fund, but feds aren't matching donations

Federal programs to match charitable donations usually focused on international disasters

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau encouraged people over the weekend to donate to the Canadian Red Cross to help British Columbians affected by raging wildfires and he made a similar appeal for Ontario and Quebec flood victims earlier this year.

However unlike many international disasters like the earthquakes in Nepal two years ago or in Haiti in 2010, Canada's appeal for domestic donations isn't shored up by a pledge that the government will pony up an equal amount of cash to match the individual donors.

The federal government has had matching contribution programs for more than a dozen international events since 2004, but it has only ever done it once for a natural disaster in Canada, the massive wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alta. last year.

More:
The government matched $104.5 million donated to the Canadian Red Cross to respond to the forest fire which forced evacuation of the entire northeastern Alberta city.

Kimberley Nemrava, Canadian Red Cross vice-president for British Columbia and Yukon, said such government involvement seems to make people more apt to reach into their wallets.

The Red Cross has seen a "bump in donations" whenever a government runs a matching program for charitable giving, she said.

"The feedback I have from donors is often that they like the concept of their funds being doubled," said Nemrava.

He throws BILLIONS of Canadian taxpayer dollars away on foreign countries, gives $10.5 million to a convicted terrorist, but won't match $9.6 million in Red Cross donations to help Canadians in BC.

The media are also not pointing out that Trudeau is using the taxpayer funded trip to BC, supposedly to visit people displaced by the fire, to attend at least THREE Liberal Party of Canada fundraising events.

He has also been using his daughter as a political prop at a few events.

F--king scumbag.

I think its important to remember what the role of government is.

Government is not there to help communities rebuild infrastructure when hit by natural disasters.

Its not there to help out Canadians who are displaced, businesses that shut down, mills that cant run...that's not what government is for.

No, the role of government is to build "Diversity Gardens" and pay of terrorists.

How dare those people in the Interior of BC expect help.

Ideally the government should be so small and strapped for cash, that it has no extra money to donate to any cause.

It troubles me that a government in debt, and paying interest on it, can somehow also match donations on a whim.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. and in reality, they don't have the money. We have debt and they pick the number. And they're anything but small.

But in light of all the other give away frenzy/lunacy, BC would seem a better cause than most of the others.

It certainly would be better to see canadian money put to use to rebuild in bc than to go overseas.
I'm not going to say that it's a economic net benefit for canadians(money left in canada will be spent regardless), but giving our money away is a definite economic loss.

When he visited the fire last year, it was only after everything had settled down. The man giving the single most amount of power to help in Canada, was certain he was worse than useless, so he didn't show up until it was all under control and could be attended by exhausted folk rather than his exhausting them to less than a useful purpose.
Once there, he proudly announced (paraphrased), "Oh, and I'm not allocating you anything. Victims is a word I use without weight here. I would like to take this moment to announce we're moving some jobs from a Conservative supporting community to a Liberal community, even though the Liberal community doesn't need them, and it will absolutely wreck the Conservative town they're currently located in, because we can. I now grant permission for my throngs of adoring fans to approach me for pictures."

The purpose of the Speer campaign, as far as I'm concerned, is not to help Tabitha Speers and her kids -- they're not destitute (she's working, she's receiving a military pension, the kids re receiving a military pension until they're 22-years-old), and her kids were going to university before this. I think their house is paid for.

The purpose of the Speer campaign, is to show with "money where your mouth is" that justin was monumentally wrong.
And on that score alone, I wouldn't expect justin to match. That's too much hypocrisy, and her family represents values too contrary to his priorities, for him.

"there is no question that this happened because there is someone who feels completely excluded. Completely at war with innocents. At war with a society. And our approach has to be, where do those tensions come from? ... we also need to make sure that as we go forward, that we donít emphasize a culture of fear and mistrust. Because that ends up marginalizing even further those who already are feeling like they are enemies of society.Ē

You condemn it categorically and to the extent that you can deal with the perpetrators you deal with them as harshly as possible and that is what this government would do if it ever was faced with such actions.Ē

Canada's matching dollars don't always go to the same agencies, but rather to multinational organizations
A week ago Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Canada would contribute an amount equal to whatever the Canadian Red Cross spends on direct aid to registered fire evacuees in B.C. this summer.

A little over a month ago I asked you to join me in raising money for the real victims of Omar Khadr, the Speer kids.

We were all upset over the $10.5 million payment, the apology, the way it was done ó so quickly and in secret, to help Khadr shield his money from a lawsuit.

The appeal was an ambitious one. I asked you to help me raise one million dollars for the Speer kids, Taryn and Tanner.

While we didnít raise the $1 million, I canít say we failed because with your help, we raised $231,134 with the support of 3,767 backers.

It is an amazing result and all due to your support.

Our initial support was from the Rebel base but as I did TV and radio interviews across the continent, we had people that donít normally watch The Rebel, donít follow us or even agree with us, donate to this campaign because they were moved.

I want to thank those other media outlets, some of whom donít really like anything The Rebel does, have me on to talk about the other side of this story.

We were able to focus a spotlight on the what Khadr did, who he hurt and what average Canadians and Americans could do about it.

We had some detractors who claimed we were doing this to promote ourselves, but it was never about me or The Rebel, it was about doing the right thing.

This campaign to help the real victims of Omar Khadr, the family of Sgt. Christopher Speer, the medic Khadr killed, was always about turning our outrage into something good.

The settlement with Khadr is outrageous. The government is out of touch with the majority of the Canadian people on this file. But thanks to you we now have $231,000 to pass on to the Speer family.

Tabitha Speer has expressed her deep gratitude for the support but remains deeply private. I donít expect weíll see her on camera but now that the campaign is over, weíll be in touch to arrange the transfer of every penny of this money that will go to the Speer family and the college funds for Taryn and Tanner.

If they pass along any messages weíll share them with you but for the most part, I plan on respecting the privacy of Tabitha, Taryn and Tanner.

Thank you so much for trusting us, for supporting us in this, for taking some of your hard earned money and donating to a good cause.

SpeerKids.com UPDATE:

September 14, 2017
by Ezra Levant

Earlier this summer, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau disgraced our country by secretly paying $10.5 million to Omar Khadr, a convicted, confessed war criminal, terrorist and murderer.

https://youtu.be/A8EH7ac8B38

What can you do when you have a terrorist walking your streets, and a terrorist-lover running your government?

You can rage about it. Or you can do something positive.

Well, we decided to do something positive:

We set up a crowdfunding website at SpeerKids.com, to raise money for the real victims — the family of the man Khadr murdered. His name is Sgt. Christopher Speer. And his widow is named Tabitha, and his two kids are named Taryn and Tanner.

We raised over $230,000 online, from 3,760 people, almost all of them from Canada.

It was Canadians’ way of saying, don’t judge us by our disgraceful prime minister.

We received the funds last week from the crowdfunding website Indiegogo.

Indiegogo took a few percent as a credit card and processing fee, but other than that, 100 per cent of the proceeds went to the family.

We also raised over $8,000 through cheques.

So I’m proud to announce that the two Speer kids received $109,764.84 Canadian each, deposited directly into accounts that their mom set up.

Transferring those funds, with the love and good wishes of 3,760 people, was one of the proudest moments of my public life.

I’ve spoken several times to Tabitha Speer. She doesn’t give media interviews, and we respect that. But I did ask her to share, even briefly, a message with me to pass on to those 3,760 people, and the many thousands of other Canadians.

Here’s what Tabitha Speer wrote to me today:


On behalf of myself and my children Taryn and Tanner, we would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all of the wonderful people who contributed to this campaign. Once again, we have been overwhelmingly amazed by such generous support provided by so many Canadians! It is truly a great feeling to know that there are caring and compassionate people in this world who have not forgotten the sacrifice my family has suffered. I am sure my husband Chris has been smiling from Heaven as he has witnessed these beautiful acts of kindness. God bless you!

Sincerely,

Tabitha, Taryn and Tanner Speer

I wrote back to her and told her if she or her family ever need anything in the future, we’ve got her back.

So thank you to our donors and supporters.

You’ve done a beautiful thing, and helped restore the moral balance.
