The charitable foundation organizing a controversial debate featuring Steve Bannon is also one of the biggest funders of Canada's network of right-wing think tanks.

The upcoming event, pitting the alt-right Donald Trump advisor and former head of the racist, far-right Breitbart.com against former George W. Bush advisor David Frum, is being organized by the Munk Debates, a "charitable initiative" of a group called the Aurea Foundation.

The Aurea Foundation was established in 2006 by Peter Munk, the billionaire former CEO of Barrick Gold – "the world's largest gold mining company" – who passed away earlier this year.
