OTTAWA – Liberal leadership hopeful Justin Trudeau took $15,000 in May 2010 from an Ontario school board to speak at a conference whose attendees were federal employees, QMI Agency has learned.

The 2010 event was one of 17 speeches the Liberal MP has given since his election in 2008 that have netted him $277,000.

Trudeau was hired by the Loyola School of Adult and Continuing Education in 2010 to give a keynote address at an annual conference for educational staff of the Correctional Services of Canada, a federal agency.

Loyola is part of the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board based in Kingston, Ont.

Trudeau also received $10,000 from the Kincardine District School Board to speak in 2011 and $15,000 from the Waterloo Catholic District School Board in 2009.
