Pierre Poilievre hypocrisy watch

It doesn't take long to smoke out the roaring hypocrisy: "Scores of Conservative candidates missed campaign debt deadline."
...Elections Canada's web site lists 19 candidates - five of them Conservatives - with loans that remained unpaid 18 months after the 2006 election.

It further lists 10 candidates - four of them Conservatives - whose unpaid loans were deemed to count as donations after 18 months. In five of those cases - three involving Conservative candidates - the donations exceed the legal maximum of $5,400 per donor.
Thank you, Canadian Press, for demonstrating Mr. Poilievre's manufactured outrage about Mr. Dion's campaign debt is nothing more than more baseless partisan attacks.
