Brian Lilley writes from Ottawa, about the hilarious (and all too familiar) spectacle of a far-left parasite group begging a “conservative” government for money — to fight that government’s own policies:
There is a campaign, by politicians and supporters of Kairos in the non-profit world to restore government funding to Kairos. The simple fact is that there is no funding to restore.
As was explained by Kairos executive director Mary Corkery at their early December news conference the group, which has received funding for years from CIDA, was turned down on a request for government funding of a four-year project. They did not lose core funding that has put them on the brink of bankruptcy or closing up shop as the NDP claimed, they simply were turned down on a project proposal, this is something many groups, businesses, consultants face everyday.
The difference here is that Kairos is able to mount a public relations campaign using all three opposition parties and a willing media to try and get back funding they never lost.
