Conservatives maintain fundraising lead in Q3, with Liberals gaining pace


The federal Conservatives finished some $500,000 ahead of the Liberals in fundraising over the third quarter of 2017, newly-released statistics from Elections Canada show.

The federal Conservatives edged out the governing Liberals in the battle to tap into Canadians’ wallets last quarter, drawing $3.6-million in donations over the past three months, in what the party is calling one of its best fundraising performances in a non-election year.

The Liberals finished some $500,000 behind the Tories, racking up roughly $3.1-million over the summer months, according to newly released statistics from Elections Canada.

The Tories also bested the Liberals in number of contributions, drawing in 32,211 donors, working out to an average donation of $113. The average totals are simply drawn from dividing funding figures by the number of donors.

Conversely, the Liberals had 29,768 donors last quarter, putting their unscientific average donation at $105.


However, Liberal spokesperson Braeden Caley argued the Liberals were the only major party to see consistent fundraising growth in each quarter in 2017, with the Tories falling behind in each reporting interval.

The Conservatives drew $5.3-million in donations, from 42,473 donors, in the first quarter of 2017, but dropped to $4.07-million and 32,427 donors in the next quarter. On the other hand, the Liberals jumped from $2.8-million and 31,812 donors in the first quarter of 2017 to $3.02-million in the second quarter, though the number of donors dropped to 30,149.

The third quarter, from the start of July to the end of September, was the first full reporting period for the Conservatives under new leader Andrew Scheer (Regina-Qu’Appelle, Sask.), who took over from interim chief Rona Ambrose in May.

Mr. Caley dismissed suggestions that the new donation figures show the Liberals are slipping behind the Tories in support, pointing out that the Conservatives also dropped below 30,000 donors in quarterly showings in 2016, 2013, and 2011. The Tories, of course, won a majority government in the 2011 election.


“The Liberal Party of Canada is the only major party to consistently see fundraising growth from each quarter to the next throughout 2017, helping continue to close the gap with the Conservative Party,” Mr. Caley said in an emailed statement, noting that the party’s third quarter performance came within four per cent of its best-ever for the time period in a non-election year.

“The Conservatives have continued to see no significant boost in their fundraising from Andrew Scheer, with his party having fared much better in its years with Stephen Harper and Rona Ambrose.”

The Conservative Party did not respond to a request for comment on the fundraising totals by deadline Tuesday.

Mr. Caley also argued the Grits were actually drawing donations from a larger pool of grassroots supporters, pointing to internal party figures that showed 97 per cent of all donations were under $200 and the median donation was just $11, while citing the more than 82,000 Canadians that have registered as new Liberals in the past year. The Liberals voted last year to scrap party membership fees.


Rounding out the major parties, the NDP finished a distant third in Q3 fundraising, pulling in $1.09-million from 19,925 contributors, which works out to an average of $54 per donor. The quarterly report includes the final stretch of the NDP leadership race, before Jagmeet Singh was elected as the party’s new leader.

“We’re happy our fundraising numbers have gone up in the third quarter and are better than last year’s numbers for the same period,” said a statement from party spokesperson Guillaume Francoeur, attributed to national director Robert Fox.

“Taking into account the money raised by leadership candidates, we are far ahead of where we were last year and we are confident our numbers will keep improving in the fourth quarter now that we have tens of thousands of new members to engage and a leader people are really excited about,” said the statement.

The Tories also netted just over $10,500 over the third quarter in monetary transfers from nomination and party leadership candidates, and actual party flag-bearers in recent byelections, pushing its total cash haul over the last quarter to $3.65-million.

Similarly, the Liberals pulled in $5,316 in monetary transfers from registered riding associations and nomination contestants in the third quarter, while the NDP reported $5,908 in monetary transfer, mostly from its own registered riding associations.

( what I find interesting is there only seems to be about 60,000 people who are regularly donating to the liberals and cpc , that's a rather small pool of potential donors when considering the size of the country )



Tories ahead in third quarter fundraising, Liberals closing gap



Kyle Duggan

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017



THE CANADIAN PRESS/Fred Chartrand



The big blue Conservative machine is still leading the pack in party fundraising, but the Liberals appear to be narrowing the gap.

Third quarter fundraising figures released through Elections Canada show the opposition Conservatives brought in $3.6 million in donations, with the governing Liberals lagging behind them at $3.1 million.

The Conservatives are down slightly from last quarter, while the Liberals posted gains. But when compared to third quarter results from the previous year, the Liberals are about where they were ($3.2 million at the time), while the Conservatives have improved, up by $512,700

Don't bet on it.

This is a short video from Question Period in our Parliament. It shows Andrew in action, scoring his big point.

Look at both of our leaders. What time in history has Canada been led by a lineup of such wimps? If they were smart wimps, it'd be OK, but they show no indication of that, either one of them.

I was actually quite impressed, given it was done within the rules of Parliament;
Was equally impressed with Pierre Poilievre dealing with Morneau in the same session

The "How hard was that" at 1:00 was entertaining.

I have since seen a video where he was better.

But still, in this day and age, you have to wonder -- is depending on your performance in the House enough?

No,
Because who watches it?

However at a minimum it shows he has it in him.

I think QP has some importance because of its effect on the Parliamentary Press.

They watch, mostly in boredom, and an attitude comes over them. Harper kept them at arm's length, so they called him cold and distant. Was that his nature or was that the way he was treating them?

I don't think you can watch this government very long without noticing the arrogance and the waste. They are even noticing that Trudeau is not freeing Parliament from a tyrant, he's keeping a lot of the tyrant's procedures in place, or amping them up.

It would still be OK if the Liberals were generating a lot of headlines, and "making progress" towards some generallly accepted social goal. But they aren't.

In two more years, their attitudes will have solidified.

But it's a slow way around.
