Ethics probe: Trudeau to testify

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will give much-anticipated testimony this week over his role in awarding a government contract to a charity that paid members of his family large sums of money, the House of Commons said Monday. Trudeau will testify for an hour on Thursday at 3:00 pm  before the House of Commons Finance Committee. Ethics commissioner Mario Dion, an independent officer of parliament, opened an investigation into Trudeau and finance minister Bill Morneau after the former's Liberal government awarded a major contract to WE Charity to manage a student scholarship program worth CAN$900 million, despite ties between the organization and the two officials' families.
