On June 2, I wrote a blog entry about the Liberal Party's $2 million loan from the Banque Nationale du Canada. On July 3, I wrote about the lack of attention on this story by the mainstream media. But today, a full week after I wrote about it, John Ivison has finally mentioned it is a National Post article. Yay! I particularly like his description of the loan:
"The financial statements also show a $2-million loan with a punishing 9% interest rate, collateralized against the assets not only of the party but of a number of riding associations. This is highly unusual and indicated a degree of financial stress long suspected but never admitted by the party."
After my post yesterday, I received several requests for the donations, or lack there of, made by other members of the Liberal Party. I promise that I will look into them today and post the results later this afternoon.
However, I will first address the repeated and erroneous allegations by an anonymous poster or poster that Stephen Harper did not donate to the CPC in the same way that Dion did not donate to the Liberals. Have a look at the following screenshot if you continue to doubt the Prime Minister's donations. He donated a total of $1100 which is the maximum amount allowed under Canada's election laws.
