Tories plead guilty, face $52,000 in fines in election spending case

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


The Conservative party and its fundraising agency both pleaded guilty to two counts of violating the Elections Act and agreed to pay maximum fines totalling $52,000.

In a plea bargain, the party pleaded not guilty to more serious charges of wilfully contravening the act and all charges were dropped against four top party officials who implemented the so-called in-and-out scheme to finance radio and television advertising during the 2006 campaign.

Conservative spokesman Fred DeLorey quickly issued a statement claiming the plea bargain is "a big victory" for the party in its five-year "administrative dispute" with Elections Canada over the legality of the in-and-out scheme.

"Every single Conservative accused of wrongdoing has been cleared today," DeLorey said.

So glad all Conservatives have been cleared of any wrong doing!

I have complete faith in Stephen Harper ! What he says he is going to do, HE follows through on!

They cut my back open ! Help!


Now everybody's happy.

Elections Canada can claim victory and so can the Conservative Party.

Most people still don't know what the hell the in-and-out thing was anyway.


At least it demonstrates that Elections Canada is independent of the government of the day.....which is more than we can say about Elections Manitoba, the NDP's handmaiden.


Well not really. They have a hard-on for the Conservatives and not others it seems.


I am glad they did not go after the Communist Party and their 86 votes in the last provincial election!

They cut my back open ! Help!
