Lets see, massive real estate company with a charity front. Tries to attract celebrities to speak about their cause and help them fund raise. Has huge religious like ceremonies and tries to recruit young children to become their zealots? Has a poverty porn division where people will pay tons of money to live in luxury, mingle with the poor for photo ops and pretend to do some meaningful work for a few minutes. A somewhat abusive founder (pair of) that berates their workers/volunteers.



The only thing missing is the Sea Org component.



Yeah


Spoiler!

I would bet we dont even know the half of it.

These guys profited handsomely from running a scam charity. And you want to know where a giant chunk of that cash came from?

Grieving parents and our Governments and School Boards.

The IRS is a lot of things....most of them bad. But 'doggedly persistent' is on that list.

They defrauded a guy over donations in the name of his dead son. I struggle to think of lower depths to which a 'charity' could sink.

Conditions are ripening for an election sooner rather than later. Along with the news of 1 million vaccines coming in this week, the GDP numbers look not too pessimistic:

So overall, Canada remains in an enviable position in the G7 as only the US fared significantly better. France -9%, UK -10%, and Italy -9.2% were all much harder hit.
