OTTAWA -- Thousands of documents detailing the creation and implementation of the Canada Student Service Grant (CSSG) program have been made public after being requested by the House finance committee studying the WE Charity controversy.

The documents include memos, proposals, budgets and handwritten notes. Some of the materials have been redacted, which the Conservatives underlined Wednesday to further back up their claim that the Liberals are involved in a cover-up.

For the most part, the documents show – as the Liberals have argued – that it was the public service that recommended WE’s involvement but it is the timeline of events and how close conversations about WE Charity were to the higher-ups of government that raises red flags about who knew what, and when.

"This page, blacked out, this page blacked out, this page blacked out. Why don’t we ask what’s in those pages at a parliamentary committee? Well I’ll tell you why. Justin Trudeau shut down those parliamentary committees," said Tory finance critic Pierre Poilievre on Wednesday during a press briefing in Ottawa, responding to the prime minister’s announcement that he would prorogue Parliament until September 23.
