“We” is once again a touchy subject in Justin Trudeau’s Liberal party.

While the hits just keep on coming about Trudeau’s connections to the WE charity, the controversy has touched off grumbling in Liberal circles about the lowercase “we” — as in, how exactly did we get into this mess, and who is “we” anyway in the decision-making circle around the prime minister?

Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, the Liberal MP for the Toronto riding of Beaches-East York, says he was on the phone immediately after the news emerged about WE being chosen to hand out nearly $1 billion in pandemic relief to students. He placed a call last week to the office of Diversity, Inclusion and Youth Minister Bardish Chagger — who’s now gone silent with the media — to get an explanation.
