Dion also uses Conservative ad funding techniques?

Oops... Steve Janke may have uncovered a "scandal" involving Stephane Dion's riding association and the Quebec Wing of the Federal Liberal Party... for using the very same sort of ad financing techniques as they are now accusing the Conservatives of using during the last Federal election!

Of course, I think we should be easy on Mr. Dion and let him off the hook... since neither he nor his riding association did anything wrong. After all, this is just a normal practice for campaign ad financing.

    You don't know what you speak about!!!

    This is unfair!!

    Gee, I wonder how Jason Cherniak will downplay this after he's finished unsuccessfully trying to take down Harper.

    I hear they're looking for sweepers at African Lion Safari.

    That's pathetic. Elections Canada caught the Tories - again - breaking the law. Instead of holding your party to account, you start trying to throw mud at everyone else.

    "Canada caught the Tories - again - breaking the law"

    THAT'S the issue here Rob... WE DIDN'T BREAK THE LAW! Neither in letter, nor in spirit! This was a series of perfectly normal and legitimate transactions. The only reason for posting this issue with Dion is to PROVE that it's perfectly normal and legal... so much so that even your leader's riding has done it in the past.

    Janke's post doesn't prove anything. The Tories channelled about $1 million of national party advertising funds channeled to individual candidates who claimed the money as individual election expenses, even though they were for the national campaign. Janke hasn't proven that any other party did that.

    Why are you people so dumb. It's not about transfers - it's about how the Conservatives manipulated the transfers (hidden) for advertising $1 million over the allowed limit and expect taxpayers to cover it.

    Why is it you people don't understand it? Don't want to see it?

    They went over the limit by approx 1 million dollars - is this so hard to understand??????

    Typical - play the victims and blame everyone else.

    Where were all these patriot Canadian Liberals when the Libs where lining their pockets in adscam , 40 million left unrecovered , and just just what we know about. At least these are Conservatives wanting to donate to Conservatives rather than thieves taking Canadians money .

    Liberals are to busy trying to register dead people and kids to raise fraudulent money for their Party.

    And they are crying foul , a HUGE difference , HUGE....
