The “Alerte-Info-Alert-bot memo about the situation involving International Development Minister Bev Oda, who stands accused by her political opponents of the serious charge of lying to Parliament” *.placed in the hands of Conservative M.P’s included the statement, “We stand by Minister Oda and her decision not to provide millions of dollars in advocacy funding to KAIROS.” *
That there were “millions in advocacy funding” ought to be substantiated or withdrawn “by the party and or PMO” *** that prepared it.
Only one cause has been mentioned to this point, that Minister Kenney stated in Israel as the cause of the funding being cut, anti-semitism..
The statement having been made it is incumbent upon the authors of the Alerte-Info-Alert-bot memo to validate, by reference to the request for funding, what the other cause(s) KAIROS was advocating that led to Minister Oda’s decision.
