Does the National Citizens Coalition Also Claim That Canada's Federal Court Of Appeal Is Retaliating Against Harper With In/Out Charges?

The National Citizens Coalition is not being very logical. They have announced publicly that Elections Canada has charged Conservatives in retaliation for Mr. Harper's involvement in old lawsuits when he headed the NCC.

What the NCC doesn't comment on, is the Federal Court of Appeal decision that agreed with Elections Canada's actions in the matter. To follow NCC logic you have to assume that the Federal Courts are also in on the vendetta. The National Citizens Coalition is being ridiculous. They lack all credibility with this idiotic statement.

"PARLIAMENT HILL—The head of the conservative lobby group Prime Minister Stephen Harper once led, when he mounted a legal battle against election spending limits while he was out of politics, says Elections Canada challenged $1.3-million worth of Conservative ad expenses from the 2006 election in retaliation for Mr. Harper’s court fights against them a decade ago.

(AND YET ...)

A panel of three Federal Court of Appeal judges, one of whom was named to the court by the Harper government in 2007, ruled in favour of Elections Canada this week in a four-year-old legal battle over the expenses, which the election agency says the Conservatives should have attributed to the party’s national campaign instead of selected candidates across the country. That would have put the party $1-million over its $18.3-million spending limit for the campaign.
Hill Times

The NCC does not believe in spending restrictions on third party advertising and I don't think they believe in restrictions on political party spending during elections.

Thus, they smear everyone who does.
