    • Liberals elected on 'transparency'. Bill C-3 removed transparency from First Nations. Bill C-4 removed transparency from Unions.
    • Revenue Canada is obligated to verify that charities only spend 10% politically. The Liberal government terminated Revenue Canada investigations into charities. So now there's no deterrence. 80% on politics may be common now.
    • The senate discovered lots of foreign money influencing the election. Tides by itself was $42 million. They told Elections Canada about it, and Elections Canada said 'it is legal. If you want it to be illegal, change the Law' The foreign money benefits the Liberals, so no Law.
    • 'Independent Senators' have stalled for over a year a senate Bill to deal with it
    • It benefits Liberals, because the people working for those companies are ex Liberal staffers
    • American IRS money tracking is now how Canadians find out about foreign money coming from the USA. No way to get such information from China or Russia
    • American PAC influence US politics, but at least they're known. Currently in Canada no one knows how much money is coming from such groups
    • Dogwood initiative. Trudeau's government taxpayer funding paid protestor against Trans Canada pipeline.
    • Bringing these into the light ... sunshine is a great disinfectant. It's funny that a government that ran on 'sunny ways' doesn't like sunshine.

    With Pierre out, they should change the name to the Vanilla Pudding Party. Conservatives need some star power...as shallow and sad as it is, I think that's what will win these days.
