Chris Aylward

Finance committee  Thank you. Subsequent events have raised questions about how the decision was actually made. We ask why the federal public service was not directed to administer the student grant program in the first place. At one point, the Prime Minister claimed that WE Charity was the only o

Chris Aylward

Finance committee  Thank you. No problem. My apologies, especially to the interpreters in the booth. Students may actually end up making even less than $10 an hour. The grant will be calculated using 100-hour thresholds and will be rounded down. Students need to work a full 100 hours to get any m
