Election Expense Question

Maybe it's all the turkey that I had for Thanksgiving supper, but I just don't have the gumption right now to find the answer to the question: If the candidates for the Green Party publicly call for their support to be given to another party, shouldn't that party then have to claim the Green Party's expenses as well as their own? Would that not be a violation of the election expense act (or whatever the heck it's called) if the total of the Green Party's candidate and the total of the candidates receiving the support exceed their campaign spending limits? Yeah, I know what you're thinking. Too much turkey talk. Happy Thanksgiving all.

It would be a violation if it was done by the Conservatives. what you must remember is that only Conservatives can violate Election Canada's rules. All the others get a free pass.

Makes sense to me.

If I were Green, I'd been seeing red. Think of all those donations people sent in good faith -- it doesn't seem right. If there isn't some sort of law, there ought to be.

There will not be a law if the Libs are in power..Why because their philosophy is if it feels good then do it and they do it over and over and over again.
Offensive and Disgusting describes cheaters that keep getting away with it. These guys WROTE the book...
