Some Of The Gates Foundation Money Coming Into Canadian Universities

This should have been addressed sooner, but here we are. Money corrupts. And large donations to colleges and universities are no different. Some well known schools in Canada have been receiving large donations from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in recent years.

Also noteworthy: a grant of nearly $20,000 to the BC Provincial Health Services Authority in September 2016. That should raise a few eyebrows. Then again, the BCPHSA is a registered charity, and isn’t really controlled by the Government.
