We’re getting one challenge after another.
Our former Parliamentary colleague Borys Wrzesnewskyj did his best to fight for fair and honest elections with his case that went all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.
And now we learn of serious allegations involving Conservative Cabinet Minister Peter Penashue’s 2011 election campaign in Labrador – more stories in the news of massive spending beyond the legal limit, illegal corporate contribution and interest-free loans.
If true, this is a clear case of breaking the law.
And at this very minute, we have three by-elections being waged in Durham, Calgary-Centre and Victoria.
The only way to combat all this is to have fully funded by-election campaigns so our candidates Grant Humes, Harvey Locke and Paul Summerville can advocate for true democracy and transparency in Parliament.
Since we’re highlighting Stephen Harper’s mismanagement of taxpayer dollars, I’m asking you for $16 – that could be just $4 after your tax credit and that represents one glass of Conservatives’ $16 orange juice – to our Do It For Democracy Campaign so we can raise $150,000 by midnight Tuesday, October 30 and help our Party get Liberal MPs elected to Parliament.
Click here to donate $16 using our pre-filled form. You may also call our toll free donation hotline or contribute by mail. Our phone number and address are both listed below.
Our focus must be on the new challenge in front of us: the three by-elections taking place on Monday, November 26.
To the 383 Canadians that have already generously contributed $16,791 to our campaign, we thank you. But let’s not kid ourselves, the other parties are not going to sit back and watch.
With the help of our hundreds of campaign volunteers, including a large number of young Liberals, we are in a position to expand our operation and reach thousands more voters each night.
But we can’t do it without your support. Our candidates are counting on Liberals like you.
You may also call 1-800-701-7789 (Mon-Fri, 9am to 5pm ET) to donate by phone, or mail a cheque payable to “Liberal Party of Canada”, noting the Do It For Democracy Campaign, to the following address:
