  1. OMG Mr Blackface ready to give more of our tax dollars away. Yet seniors and those with disabilty are still waiting for a that funding for them that Trudeau said he would give them 3 months ago.

      I remember that.
      I also remember when our glorious liberal leader Justin Trudeau promised to match donations for Firt Mcmurray after the wildfire but then quietly stopped the funds.

    5million for that country who needs help and 50million for MasterCard to open an office in Vancouver who don’t need it how come the govt didn’t ask for donations for MasterCard?

  5. Lebanon is full of billionaires. Canada’s money is of no use in Lebanon.

      Let their billionaires give to the Beirut cause. They created it.

      @Rory McDonald you are so right but the rich ones are the dirtiest ones over there also, unfortunately the common folk suffers and needs help

  6. Canadians are milked dry already, justin. Can you please stop giving away our money just so that you can virtue signal?

    It’s not your money Justin. If Canadians can afford to donate they will, but do not match donations as it is not your money to give

    Nope, thank We charity for making me never want to donate again.

    Indigenous communities still don’t have clean drinking water and basic necessities despite Trudeau’s promises back in 2015 … I’m sorry but Canadians need to come first, now more than ever

      So right but if you see how much money this federal govt has bin wasting there looks to me like enough for all and just a thought maybe the saudies can help also they have extra

      The water systems on Canadian reserves is unacceptable and I speak this from personal experience, constant boil water advisory,9 dollars for a jar of spaghetti sauce it’s unbelievable

  10. Sounds so generous, it’s OUR tax money they’re giving away, so we’re donating twice…

  11. Not enough money for veterans…but enough money for virtue signaling.

  12. When all the Canadians are fed and housed then the FED should start worrying about the problems outside Canada.

    Wait they are “matching” our donations with our tax dollars? Listen lady, that’s not your money. I love you Canadian government, but seriously, try harder! Give er eh? How about we give them some grain because they lost those silos?
