The Conservative Party Quietly Stopped Breaking 'The Election Act' During The Last Election
None of the 192 Conservative candidates whose expense reports have been published to date channelled their advertising purchases through the national campaign during last fall's election, as many Tories did during the previous campaign.
In 2006, Tory candidates paid about $1.2 million in advertising expenses and listed the Conservative Fund of Canada as the supplier, with payments as high as $50,000. But none of the radio or TV expenses claimed last year were paid to the party."
The Ottawa Citizen
The Conservative Party of Canada continues to insist that its 'In & Out' scheme is totally 'legal' despite the fact that they have quietly stopped doing it. By moving funds from its central office to local campaigns and then back again (all within a few hours or days), Conservative insisted that they what they were doing was perfectly legal.
Well, actions speak louder than words, and they have stopped doing what they still insist was appropriate. I think this is what is known as 'hand in the cookie jar'!
