More bad news for the sinking grits. The grits are fighting to have anyone pay attention to them and they are increasingly financially sinking . Nearly one-third of Liberal party candidates failed to garner enough votes to qualify for Elections Canada reimbursements of their election expenses, iPolitics has learned.
A study of the this month’s election results has revealed that 92 Liberal candidates, or 30%, received less than 10% of the vote — the party’s worst showing since at least 1997.
Moreover, the number of Liberal candidates who fail to meet the threshold to be reimbursed has been rising steadily in recent years.
