Campaign hijinks

The federal elections watchdog ruled last week that Liberal MP Stephen Fuhr took illegal campaign contributions during the 2015 election in an attempt to unseat the local Conservative incumbent in Kelowna-Lake Country. 

Unfortunately, this is exactly what Canadians have come to expect from the Liberal party.

Justin Trudeau has consistently tried to introduce democratic reform policies that benefit the Liberal party.

When he did not get the electoral system he wanted, he abandoned all plans for democratic reform.

When the opposition parties proved too effective in the House of Commons, he tried to take all the tools away from parties that sat opposite him.

Moreover, Trudeau is now trying to restrict the way political parties use money that Canadians freely donate, while encouraging American-style super PACs.

Trudeau is failing Canadians, and Conservatives will continue to fight for a fair democratic system.
