Jean Charest admits his association with the World Economic Forum (WEF)

Conservative leadership candidate Jean Charest has gone up to bat for the World Economic Forum (WEF), of which he is a member.

“We refuse to give credence to conspiracy theories about the WEF or otherwise. Canadians want a Conservative Party that is grounded in reality, not conspiracy,” wrote Charest in a Tweet, with a link to a National Post article glorifying Charest.

In the article Charest linked, the National Post writes that Charest not only likes the WEF but proudly attended Davos so that he could establish an EU trade agreement with Canada.

“Nor does he give credence to conspiracy theories about the WEF. In fact, it was at its annual meeting in Davos in 2006 that Charest kick-started the idea of a Canada-European Union trade agreement at a dinner with then EU trade commissioner Peter Mandelson,” the National Post writes.

Charest’s Tweet comes after the recent leadership debate. During a Q&A following the debate, Rebel News’s Alexa Lavoie questioned Charest on whether he thinks organizations like the World Economic Forum, who has stated they’ve “penetrated” Trudeau’s cabinet, and the World Health Organization, pose a threat to Canada’s sovereignty.

“Listen, I don’t think the WEF threatens Canada’s sovereignty. Besides, the last time I was there, I was there with Stephen Harper,” he said, clearly not amused with the question.

He also stated that he doesn’t see a risk posed by digital IDs when asked. If you want to read about the threat posed by digital IDs, which Charest isn’t interested in protecting Canadians from, you can do so by clicking here.

Following the debate, Charest was also grilled by The Counter Signal, who asked how much he received from the Chinese Communist Party-owned Huawei company while he was an employee. Charest, of course, refused to give a number.

“I’m not going into that. I mean, that’s now an old story. And all the work I did in my lifetime, I never did anything that was contrary to the interest of my country,” Charest said before once again deflecting the blame onto Stephen Harper.
