...Elections Canada's web site lists 19 candidates - five of them Conservatives - with loans that remained unpaid 18 months after the 2006 election.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.
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.
