Canadian Charity Ensnared in Trudeau Ethics Scandal to Shut Down

OTTAWA—The Canadian charity at the heart of a summer time scandal engulfing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and members of his Liberal administration is shutting down, attributing the final decision partly to the ensuing political fallout.

Toronto-based WE Charity mentioned Wednesday it would wind down its Canadian operations, citing the loss of corporate sponsors and an envisioned fall in donations as a final result of a political uproar that weighed on Mr. Trudeau’s standing in general public-opinion polls.
