Between April and June of this year, the Liberal Party's fundraising efforts were battered by the allegations of kickbacks heard at the Gomery inquiry into Ottawa's troubled sponsorship program. Their total of $1.43-million lagged far behind the Conservatives, which chalked up more than three times as much, $4.98-million. And the Liberals barely outpaced the New Democratic Party, which recorded $1.13-million in donations for the quarter.
Is this a sign of possible troubles for the Liberal Party in the next election? The Conservatives better use this fundraising advantage they're gaining wisely.
