Was Sloan right? Trudeau and Liberals send $850 Million to WHO

Written By Daniel Bordman, Posted on May 5, 2020

Last week, Derek Sloan came under heavy fire from the media and political establishment for rhetorically asking whether Dr. Theresa Tam and the rest of the Liberals were working for China and WHO or Canada.

The core of Sloan’s criticism was that Dr. Tam, Trudeau, and Hadju had repeatedly pushed misinformation from WHO that appeared sympathetic to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).  

There was the infamous January 14th tweet where the WHO claimed no human-to-human transmission of COVID-19, Tam flip-flopping on people wearing masks, Tam being against travel restrictions to hotspots, and the fact that our Health Minister is still operating under the impression that China’s Coronavirus cases stopped at 83 000 over a month ago.

Now, in the wake of the many WHO failures, which have put Canadian lives at risk, the Trudeau Liberals have earmarked $850 million to the WHO.

This raises concerns about why so much money is going to international bureaucrats at a time when Canada is in desperate need of money.

With the government already handing out billions during the lockdown, and no end in sight, Canadians should wonder if that money would be better spent on Canada’s healthcare system or direct funding to specific labs.

Canadians should be able to expect that during a crisis, the federal government will take care of Canadians before handouts to international institutions. 

With Dr. Bruce Aylward failing to appear before the House of Commons Standing Committee by May 1st, on the matter of the WHO’s recommendations on addressing the pandemic, the lack of regard for Canadian lives speaks volumes.

While the WHO engages in damage control, in light of their recent controversy, Dr. Aylward’s no-show is a testament to the already damaged reputation of the organization.


To make matters worse, it’s unclear what the priorities of the current Liberal government are given their $850 million allocations of funds for the WHO.

Sloan got ripped up and down for criticizing the Liberals’ behaviour towards the WHO and CCP a week ago, but does this recent development vindicate him for his concerns?

Hopefully, the next person to bring up questions about the Liberals’ relationship with the CCP and the WHO will be taken seriously, not shouted down by a political rage mob. Important questions and concerns need to be addressed.

    We the electorate must add the Bloc, the NDP and the Green Party. These other 3 party’s are responsible also ,without the support of the Greens, Bloc and NDP , Trudeau and his corrupt liberals would be out of power. Because without their support we would have had a non confidence vote long ago and the Trudeau liberals would be down the road with a pink slip. We need to hold the NDP, Greens and Bloc accountable for this mess also !!!

  2. Linda L Dillon says:

    Peter Veeken. You are absolutely correct. The Block, NDP and Green Parts should be held as responsible as the Liberals. They are helping to hold the Canadian people up for what the liberals want. I hear people blaming the Conservatives for not doing something, but without the support of the other three parties they do not represent a majority in the government. What is so hard people do not understand this. These four parties should be ashamed of themselves. They are driving the economy and the people of Canada into the ground We might never survive,

  3. Ted Ross says:

    It is unfortunate that the NDP and Greens have no love for Canada. If they did, Trudeau would be back in Drama class by now and Canada would have a chance to survive. As it is, he is given a free pass and can bankrupt the country and they think they can hold their head up? They don’t fool me nor my friends. What about you?
