Federal Appeals Court Confirms Elections Canada Correct In Charges Against Harper's Conservative Party

So much for all of Stephen Harper's indignant self righteousness. He operates with the belief that whatever the Conservatives do is perfectly fine.

At least we haven't reached a point where he is beyond the law.

"The Federal Court of Appeal has struck down a ruling that Conservatives say cleared them of any wrongdoing in the so-called in-and-out election financing scheme.

The ruling confirms Elections Canada's interpretation of electoral spending laws

The court says it was reasonable for the elections watchdog to be dissatisfied with the way the Conservative Party reported national advertising expenses for the 2006 election.

The expenses were claimed as local advertising by 67 Tory candidates.

Elections Canada maintains the scheme allowed the national party to exceed its spending limit by more than $1-million, while letting candidates claim rebates on expenses they hadn't actually incurred.

The court ruling relates to a civil suit launched by two of the candidates.

Late last week, charges of wilfully overspending were laid against the party and four of its top campaign and fundraising officials, including two senators."
