Thank you, Chair.
Thank you, Minister, for being here.
I want to raise a question that I raised with Minister Qualtrough. It's an important issue, and that's why I'm repeating it. There is a myth—a mistake, a falsehood, call it what you will—that continues to be peddled by the opposition that has created a perception among the Canadian public, which is that hundreds of millions of dollars were going to be pocketed by WE from the federal government for the purposes of administering and building the Canada student service grant.
On July 28, Craig Kielburger testified to the finance committee. He said the following in his opening statement:
As per the contribution agreement, WE Charity would only be reimbursed for its costs to build and administer the program. To be clear, there was no financial benefit for the charity. WE Charity would not have received any financial gain from the CSSG program....
Minister, does that align with your understanding of all this, that it was a reimbursement, up to a maximum of $43.5 million, for WE from the federal government?
