PM Trudeau apologizes for not recusing himself from WE volunteering choice

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he is very sorry he did not recuse himself from the federal government’s choice to award a contract to WE Charity to handle a significant student-volunteering program.

He says his and his household’s longtime involvement with the WE group ought to have saved him out of the discussions.

And he says he is significantly sorry that the delay in this system brought on by WE’s eventual choice to withdraw will hurt college students in search of methods to assist in the COVID-19 pandemic.
