But you don't have to 'support ' a party in your advertising.... support certain issues that a party just happens to support.

Examples from last election?

Not sure that is right.  I think the limit applies to the party in tootal (211K), not third party....

Not the way I read it.

Quote
A third party is a person or group that conducts election advertising, other than a candidate, registered party or electoral district association.
... the following can register:
- individuals who are Canadian citizens, permanent residents or reside in Canada
- corporations that carry on business in Canada
- other groups, including groups abroad, if the person responsible for the group is a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or resides in Canada
...
Election advertising is the transmission to the public during an election period of an advertising message that promotes or opposes a party or a candidate, or that takes a position on an issue associated with a party or candidate.
...
The current limit for a 37-day election period is $211,200, of which no more than $4,224 can be spent in a particular electoral district. These limits are in effect from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. If the election period is longer than 37 days, the limits increase by 1/37th for every day over 37.
...
Third parties are allowed to fund their election advertising from three sources:
- contributions given for election advertising purposes from individuals who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents, and businesses or other organizations that operate in Canada
- the third party's own funds, which means that groups receiving funding or revenues from abroad for general purposes can use those funds for election advertising
- loans obtained for election advertising purposes
There are no limits on contributions or loans given to third parties.

The major issues that I see for a foreign entity getting it's message out is that: a) needs to be an eligible front-man to be the 'Third Party' and b) a permissible funding stream needs to be developed. I would think that there are sufficient Chinese businessmen, corporations etc that could be enrolled in such a project and permissible funding streams engaged.

For me the question is: Do the Chinese really care enough one way or the other to even bother? Both the Libs and Conservatives have pro trade agendas. The only issue right now is the Huawei one and while Scheer has said they would ban them, it's starting to look like the Libs will probably (and rightfully) go that way as well.

This is the official list of registered Third Party Advertisers for the 2015 General Election:

Lot of unions, the Wheat Board ...

And this page links to each Third Party's report summarizing their expenses. Some are small. Some are large.

I find Friends of Canadian Broadcasters interesting. Lots of contributors and cash raised and spent.

Note also Strong and Free who spent all their money on Facebook campaigns.

I hadn't realized before this that Facebook influencer campaigns were now a thing in Canada, too.

Should be interesting to watch what comes out of the registered Third Party advertisers and non-registered foreign trolls during this campaign.

Thanks To Justin Trudeau’s Virtue-Signalling Foolishness, Canada Could Face A ‘Genocide’ Investigation Run By Foreign Countries

Justin Trudeau’s decision to use the term ‘genocide’ following the release of the MMIWG report has now lead to something that would have seemed absurd to write:

The Organization of American States is asking Canada to hold an investigation into “allegations of genocide.”

On Twitter, the head of the OAS – Luis Almagro – said “it is necessary to clarify these allegations and achieve justice.”

“Given evidence of genocide perpetrated against indigenous women and girls in Canada I have offered the creation of an Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI Canada). It is necessary to clarify these allegations and achieve justice”.

As Warren Kinsella noted, Justin Trudeau will now face allegations of ‘genocide’ and have to deal with that during the election:

“I predicted this would happen within the week. I was wrong. It actually happened a lot faster. Trudeau will now be investigated by an international body, during an election, for genocide he’s admitted to: that’s a first. Well done, JT.”

<snip>

The full letter from Luis Almagro can be viewed via the link.

It was a really brilliant thing to do.  Now we're on the very short list of countries which have admitted to genocide, and stand alone on a list of countries admitting to genocide which are currently committing it*, and it will be thrown back in Canada's face every time Canada comments on some other nation's behaviour ("You have nothing to say to us; by your own admission, you are committing genocide").

*Unless all the recommendations necessary to void the assessment were completed yesterday.
That which does not kill me has made a grave tactical error.

Even better, JT, as the PM of a self admitted state conducting "genocide" may now find himself arrested for crimes against humanity next time he travels internationally and stand trial in the Hague.

Not quite.  If you listened to what he said he stated that he agreed that is "was" not "is" genocide.  subtle but was likely deliberate in the wording.

My guess is that with his credibility with indigenous communities in peril that this was something he could leverage to regain some of that with those groups.  he likely succeeded in that regard.   

The cost though may be felt in other areas.

Now as to other countries throwing it back at us, I'm of two thoughts.

One: They were already doing that.  So situation no change.

Two: By stating what he did, I think it does however remove the hypocrisy of recognising other countries' failings and not our own.

It's really uncharted waters right now.  So it could set a bad precedent or it could not.  Time will tell. 

Also, look at the CPC reaction to the inquiry.  Largely in agreement.  And they are pretty quiet on Trudeau's comments about genocide.  They also are trying to distance themselves from some comments  made by a former minister under Harper.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/indigenous/valcourt-mmiwg-report-1.5159437

With the CPC trying hard to show people that they are not a party of intolerance they really have no choice but to be silently or overtly supportive.  With the whole Beyak issue and more recently with comments made by Cooper it is likely wise not to pick a fight over this.

Correct, but useless as a deflection.   To concede that it "was" means that unless someone can identify when it stopped it still "is".  The commission's expressed opinion is that it "is", and he passed the opportunity to dispute that by pretending to escape behind a verb tense.

He has positioned himself as the righteous leader taking affirmative action which he can then use to ask the PCs why they did nothing on their watch.  My problem is with the word genocide itself.  If you had asked the leaders (of both parties) why the schools were set up they would have replied to bring our indigenous people into the 19th or 20th century.  It is dangerous and uncharted waters that may bring about results that are detrimental to all involved.

Given our election finance laws with strict limits on donations, spending etc, I would be interested to see just how, exactly, that would manifest itself.

OTTAWA—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal party ran a series of fundraising ads targeting American and U.K. audiences on Facebook despite it being illegal to accept donations from foreign citizens.
The party used its official Facebook account, as well as Trudeau’s, to solicit donations from the U.S. and U.K. for a week in March — advertising party official Braeden Caley says was an error. Caley said no money was collected from foreign citizens through the ad campaign.

“A limited set of grassroots fundraising ads on Facebook inadvertently ran briefly both inside and outside of Canada, when that wasn’t the intention here,” said Caley, a spokesperson for the Liberal party, in a statement to the Star.
“The ads were removed by the following week. (The Liberal party) has also been reviewing with Facebook how the ads were able to extend into the other places that you’ve referenced.”

By law, Canadian political parties can only accept donations from Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
Facebook is one of the world’s most powerful advertising platforms, allowing companies and organizations to drill down on micro-targeted audiences to get their message across. It is heavily used by both the Liberal party and the Conservative party in Canada.

I support this NDP policy:

It would also be nice to see more pocket book issues addressed : bank and insurance transaction fees, service and admin charges,  surcharges,  levies, credit card interest rates, pro-consumer dispute resolution rights, ridiculous airline baggage and seating change fees, etc. All the little fees that add up in a month or a year.       
I don't think anyone can quickly fix the big issues facing this country, but they can make it more affordable in fairly short order.

I know this discussion is leading up to the Federal election, but some things I've casually noticed in our local provincial by-election.

The 3 main parties are conducting normal, routine campaign style methods: signs along roads - 1 party puts up a lawn sign and other lawn signs MUST pop up nearby. Only 1 candidate came to our door, the other 3 have not even bothered to mail anything to us. Yet, we've watched the teams canvass our short street.

The Green party candidate has caught my eye, working so hard. No...he didn't come to our door.
He's hosted an AMA on Redditt, and instead of a BBQ / ice cream event, he hosted a street corner party, with supporters personally hoisting his signs for a couple of hours.

These kinds of efforts are more direct, personal and take effort both by the candidate and those who support him. It caught my eye as refreshing  and when successfully managed can be very disruptive to traditional elections. Normally, I's never consider my vote for the Green party, but this individual is working hard.

https://www.alberta.ca//external/news/pmo-provincial-letter-to-senate-on-c-69-and-c-48.pdf

Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, PC, MP
Prime Minister of Canada
Office of the Prime Minister
80 Wellington St
Ottawa, ON
K1A 0A2

Dear Prime Minister,

We are writing on behalf of the Governments of Ontario, New Brunswick, Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta and the Northwest Territories. Collectively, our five provinces and
territory represent 59 per cent of the Canadian population and 63 per cent of Canada’s GDP.
We are central to Canada’s economy and prosperity, and it is of the utmost importance that you
consider our concerns with bills C-69 and C-48.

Canadians across the country are unified in their concern about the economic impacts of the
legislation such as it was proposed by the House of Commons. In this form, the damage it
would do to the economy, jobs and investment will echo from one coast to the other. Provincial
and territorial jurisdiction must be respected. Provinces and territories have clear and sole
jurisdiction over the development of their non-renewable natural resources, forestry resources,
and the generation and production of electricity. Bill C-69 upsets the balance struck by the
constitutional division of powers by ignoring the exclusive provincial powers over projects
relating to these resources. The federal government must recognize the exclusive role
provinces and territories have over the management of our non-renewable natural resource
development or risk creating a Constitutional crisis.

Bill C-69, as originally drafted, would make it virtually impossible to develop critical
infrastructure, depriving Canada of much needed investment. According to the C.D. Howe
Institute, between 2017 and 2018, the planned investment value of major resource sector
projects in Canada plunged by $100 billion – an amount equivalent to 4.5 per cent of Canada’s
gross domestic product. To protect Canada’s economic future, we, collectively, cannot afford to
overlook the uncertainty and risk to future investment created by Bill C-69.

Our five provinces and territory stand united and strongly urge the government to accept Bill C-
69 as amended by the Senate, in order to minimize the damage to the Canadian economy. We
would encourage the Government of Canada and all members of the House of Commons to
accept the full slate of amendments to the bill. The Senate Committee on Energy, the
Environment, and Natural Resources heard 38 days of testimony from 277 witnesses including
indigenous communities, industry, Premiers, and independent experts. Based on that
comprehensive testimony, the committee recommended significant amendments to the bill,
which were accepted by the Senate as a whole. We urge you to respect that process, the
committee’s expertise, and the Senate’s vote.

If the Senate’s amendments are not respected, the bill should be rejected, as it will present
insurmountable roadblocks for major infrastructure projects across the country and will further
jeopardize jobs, growth and investor confidence.

Similarly, Bill C-48 threatens investor confidence, and the tanker moratorium discriminates
against western Canadian crude products. We were very disappointed that the Senate did not
accept the recommendation to the Senate Committee on Transport and Communications that
the bill not be reported. We would urge the government to stop pressing for the passage of this
bill which will have detrimental effects on national unity and for the Canadian economy as a
whole.

Our governments are deeply concerned with the federal government’s disregard, so far, of the
concerns raised by our provinces and territory related to these bills. As it stands, the federal
government appears indifferent to the economic hardships faced by provinces and territories.
Immediate action to refine or eliminate these bills is needed to avoid further alienating provinces
and territories and their citizens and focus on uniting the country in support of Canada’s
economic prosperity.

Yours sincerely,

Federal Politics: Liberals appear to have stopped bleeding; can the Conservatives be bloodied?

June 10, 2019 – Notwithstanding a summer sitting of the House of Commons, these will be the final days for MPs in Ottawa before returning to their constituencies to fight for their political futures in the federal election campaign this fall.

The latest analysis of new polling data from the non-profit Angus Reid Institute suggests that for Liberal candidates, a disastrous slide in support over the first half of the year appears to have ended, making this a critical – albeit shrinking – period of time to try to regroup and rebuild.

Conservatives, meanwhile, will take comfort in maintaining a wide lead over the governing party, but must be mindful of a failure to build momentum as their opponent plummeted.

Indeed, 37 per cent of decided and leaning voters say they would cast ballots for the CPC if the election were held tomorrow, a number that is statistically unchanged from where it has been since the SNC Lavalin scandal first hit the headlines back in February.

For the second straight month, the Liberals hold the support of roughly one-quarter of Canadian voters (26%), still well below the 31 per cent they recorded in February, but no longer dropping month after month.

<snip>

The CPC leads in vote intention across all regions of the country, but the race with the Liberals is much closer in Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada than it is in the four western provinces

<snip>

The CPC’s overall lead has decreased slightly (from 13 percentage points to 11) since the Angus Reid Institute’s federal vote intention poll last month, but the Tories remain well ahead, largely on the strength of their performance in Western Canada.

Andrew Scheer’s party holds commanding leads in traditional strongholds Alberta and Saskatchewan, as well as in Manitoba. The Conservatives are also well ahead in British Columbia, though this has more to do with a divided field in that province than an exceptionally high level of support for the CPC. As seen in the table that follows, Conservative support tops 50 per cent in each of the three Prairie provinces, while in B.C. it is 36 per cent, with the Liberals, Greens, and New Democrats all holding the support of roughly one-in-five.

The Liberals and Conservatives are statistically tied in Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada, though the CPC is ahead by a couple of percentage points in each of these three regions:

>I support this NDP policy:

So do I, provided all the necessary funding comes out of federal revenues.  Otherwise, it is just political bullying to transfer money away from the shareholders and employees of selected companies to other Canadians.

If not, I have another great idea to share the costs among all companies rather than an unlucky few: skim all the profits from every corporation and business with a profit margin greater than some threshold - say, 10% - and use that money.
That which does not kill me has made a grave tactical error.
