The word is "Canadian"

From a Globe piece today on multiculturalism and Conservative fortunes:
There isn’t a meeting or a religious service that the legendarily energetic Mr. Kenney is too busy to attend. The Conservatives maintained the Liberals’ high immigration quota – the highest in the world, on a per-capita basis – only now it was Conservative dollars supporting festivals and parades, Tory infrastructure money helping to build community centres, Tory MPs helping a new arrival bring the family here from overseas.
I think they mean "Canadian taxpayer's dollars," "Canadian government infrastructure money," and "Canadian MPs." You know, unless the Conservative party is actually paying for all those things themselves.
