Ex-Liberal MP is an “adviser” for charity that hired Trudeau to speak


Sun News has confirmed (see here) that Liberal leader Justin Trudeau was paid $10,000 from the Children of Hope charity which has ex-Liberal MP Mark Holland listed as an adviser. (see here)

Will the Media Party now give this the same amount of coverage (see here) as they are about the Conservative connection to the Grace Foundation?

Stay tuned for details on when Trudeau was hired and when Holland was initially involved with this charity.

    Mark Holland was a media darling when he was an MP and IMO one of the most obnoxious. He was beaten by Chris Alexander and doubt he has gotten over it yet. I would wager this will not get close to the coverage the usual hacks have given the Grace Foundation.

    Wow, $122,500 from Unions, and voting against union legislation is a definite conflict of interest, if not worse!
    ”…When I started as an MP, I sat down with Mary Dawson and asked her all about it and said this is what I’m doing,” Trudeau said in an interview last week.
    Ottawa Citizen, Feb 14
    Bet she didn’t know about this!

      Someone better ask Mary Dawson if she actually did approve of what Justin claims to have informed her he was doing. Somethings smells here, actually it’s becoming a stench. We need some serious digging from the award winning duo of McGregor and Mahar.

    You just had to know there would be more to this story. As I said before,I’d bet most of the “charities” and other organizations that hired Trudeau to speak had a majority of Liberals on the Board,or as in this case, an “adviser” well connected to the LPC.

    And it’s becoming pretty obvious this was a way to get around political donation laws.
    I agree with “wilson”, this appears to be a conflict of interest. Where’s Glenn MacGregor?

      I’ve set it up for the media to run with but I won’t hold my breath

      McGregor and Mahar, the “robocall” twins, patting each other on the back. The Citizen and Postmedia win the Michener award for their great work on the robocall file.
      So much for awards…….

    It’s just a way to avoid the campaign finance laws.
    Pay Justin $20,000.00 for his wisdom?
    All they are doing is cheating us, again.

      My thoughts exactly re getting around campaign limits. You give to me and I give to you, and get a nice tax receipt for the donation.

    I live in Ajax/Pickering and believe Mr. Holland worked on JT leadership bid. There was talk that Holland was working in Ontario for JT as part of JT’s team, but not 100% certain. I do know for a fact Holland and former MP Dan Mctague held a rally for JT in Pickering while JT was running for leadership.

    • Liz J Says:

      Congratulations to the people of Ajax/Pickering for choosing a very fine and intelligent person like Chris Alexander to represent them.

    Trudeau spoke back in May 2008 – Holland became involved with this charity in September 2011.
