Les conservateurs amassent des millions [, will post English version when someone publishes it.]

So far this year, the Conservatives have raised $13,3 million, the Liberals $4,1 million and the NDP $2,8 million. The Conservatives, like the NDP, have good experience raising multiple small contributions, whereas the Liberals were more reliant on fewer, larger donations. I don't know if Liberal leadership donations are counted in the Liberal total or not, but whichever way, the total annual limit a contributor is allowed to give a party includes leadership race donations, so people who have donated the maximum contribution to a leadership candidate this year cannot give to the party as well. I *hope* for the Liberals that that explains a part of the lopsided income, compared to the Conservatives.

The parties also rely for their income on $1,75 per year per vote gathered in the last election.

(Sorry for the multiple postings today, there's just a lot of stuff to talk about...)

If we have much more elections, I think I'm going to be forced to totally overthrow the entire canadian government.

I mean, sooner rather than later.

You stay away from Israel and Italy then. I hear they have yearly subscriptions to elections over there.

crazy stuff. I'd be pulling my hair out.

Then again, I'd hate to live in France were they elect the same guy every time...
